Materazzi: 'Thank you, Zlatan!'

Inter hero Marco Materazzi responded to Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s story by ‘thanking’ the Swede. “Without you, we would never have won!”

Ibrahimovic told GQ about the time he sent Materazzi to hospital after having held a grudge for four years because of an ugly challenge in 2006.

Now, the former Italy defender has replied with a sarcastic comment to the Swedish star.

He posted a photo of the treble-winning team from 2009-10 on Instagram, with captain Javier Zanetti holding the Champions League trophy, the one cup that eluded Zlatan during his otherwise-illustrious career.

“I came… I saw… I conquered…,” stated the 46-year-old in Zlatan-style. “Always and in any case, THANK YOU, Ibrahimovic. Without you, we would never have WON.”

The 38-year-old moved to Barcelona the summer before Inter won the treble, in a swap deal including Samuel Eto’o, who was tagged by Materazzi in the post.
