'Milan mustn't hide behind Ibra'

Zvonimir Boban has hailed the return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic but warned Milan’s players that they cannot “hide behind his very broad shoulders”.

Milan have turned back to Ibrahimovic in a bid to revitalise their season, yet it comes just weeks after they were thrashed 5-0 by Atalanta, leaving them some 14 points off a Champions League place in Serie A.

“We’re very proud to embrace a unique character and player,” Boban said at a Press conference.

“We’re super positive with regards the effect of Zlatan on the team and club.

“That said, results need to follow. Given the media frenzy that Ibra brings, I wouldn’t want that horrible and unacceptable defeat in Bergamo to be forgotten.

“None of us must hide behind Zlatan’s very broad shoulders. We have to be positive, Ibra can help everyone with that change.

“We’re happy to have him back.”
