Zlatan Ibrahimovic points out Milan “played against the strongest side in the world. Pep Guardiola? It’s nothing personal.”
The Swede famously lambasted Barcelona manager Guardiola in his autobiography and left the club after several blazing rows.
“My goal? It was nothing personal. I scored for my club and my fans, just like in every other game.
“Guardiola? It’s nothing personal, I said what happened and that’s all. Let us look to the future now.”
Milan fought back twice at San Siro, but were eventually beaten 3-2 in a thrilling encounter.
“Today we played against the strongest team in the world and we did well, scoring two goals. It’s just a shame we were unable to get the third.
“I am happy with our performance and it’s just a pity we lost. I liked this game. It was a great match, with tempo and intensity.”
