Ibra 'understands Mou rage at Barca'

Zlatan Ibrahimovic stirred up controversy against Barcelona. “Now I know why Jose Mourinho gets so angry when he plays here...”

The striker was bitter against his former teammates after the 3-1 Champions League quarter-final defeat at the Nou Camp.

“I don’t understand why they awarded the second penalty, but now I know why Mourinho gets so angry when he plays here,” sniped the Swede.

“I don’t really want to talk after going out of the tournament like this. Everyone saw what happened.

“Barcelona are the strongest team in the world, but we are allowed to play and to do battle. We did well up to their second goal. If that was a penalty, then so was the challenge on me.”

However, once again Ibrahimovic failed to deliver in a big Champions League game.

“We need a lot more to do well in the Champions League, though Barcelona only scored with two penalties. Is the Champions League cursed for me? No.

“We will do everything we can to win the Scudetto now.”
