Pioli “can’t wait” to Coach Zlatan at AC Milan

Confirming that the deal is done and that the Swedish striker set to return to San Siro, AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli revealed Zlatan Ibrahimovic is exactly what his team needs and that he is looking forward to coaching the 38-year-old.

“Ibra is a warrior, a leader, a charismatic player who has a great sense of responsibility and a great desire to win,” the Coach told Corriere della Sera. “He’ll stimulate the whole team, his contribution will be crucial. 

“Being the youngest team in the league, we’ve encountered some limitations in terms of a competitive streak Ibra is the kind of player, person and leader who can help us fill that void. He can do it all, he knows how to set up his teammates, he knows how to occupy the box well and he’ll know how to be the focal point in our attack. 

“I spoke to him on the phone, he’s very fired up and he can’t wait to train with us, just like I can’t wait to coach him!”
