Zlatan Ibrahimovic hits out at AC Milan teammates after Inter defeat

Zlatan Ibrahimovic believes AC Milan’s players lacked the experience to hold on to their lead after the defeat to Inter on Sunday evening and claims his teammates ‘stopped playing’ in the second half.

Ibrahimovic provided the assist for Ante Rebic’s opener before scoring Milan’s second goal before the half-time break.

But Inter battled back in the second half and scored four times through Marcelo Brozovic, Matias Vecino, Stefan de Vrij and Romelu Lukaku to secure a 4-2 victory.

‘It’s difficult to explain what happened,’ Ibrahimovic told Sky Sport Italia after the defeat.

‘At half-time we told ourselves, the first 15 minutes going back out there will be crucial, and in that 15-minute spell we conceded two goals.

‘We stopped playing, the team stopped believing, we stopped pressing, didn’t pass it around enough. From the equaliser onwards, everything collapsed.

‘I think a lot of it is down to experience, because you must know how to control a game at 2-0 up, not just winning at the end.

‘It’s strange, because our first half was practically perfect. I expected more from Inter and the first half performance did not look like a team worthy of second place. They did after the break.’
