Hakan Calhanoglu has commended the impact of Zlatan Ibrahimovic in Milan since the veteran returned to San Siro. Calhanoglu has confirmed that the veteran helped to get the best out of the new San Siro crop.
The 38-year-old Swede, who returned to Milan in January and has contributed four goals since his comeback at Rossoneri, was hit by a setback during last week’s training.
“He is not a new player for Milan. He is a world star and a very experienced player,” Calhanoglu told. “He is our star. He has contributed to us in every respect – with his experience, game ambition, mentality, helping very well out on the pitch.”
About the player’s rumoured problematic behaviour, he says: “Everyone on the outside sees ego. I think there is no ego, he is very approachable, very sympathetic, immediately joking, very enjoyable to spend time with.”
Zlatan is supposed to return this campaign for the Diavolo but his future in Milan is uncertain.
