Controversies with Mbappé and Ibrahimovic

On the other hand, he commented that he was never intimidated by Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he arrived at the Milan and little by little he has become a scorer for the rossonero team.
“When I was going to sign, Pioli asked me about Ibra and how he saw our coexistence. I told him that if he didn’t think he could play with him, he wouldn’t be there. Ibra never scared me. It is also an opportunity to evolve by his side, to continue learning with someone of such wealth. His charisma, his presence in the dressing room and his leadership on the field are above. When I signed, he said he was a good rookie, but that he was the only king in Milan. “
