Calhanoglu: 'Zlatan is our star'

Hakan Calhanoglu has praised Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s impact at Milan since the veteran's return to San Siro: “He’s our star and there’s no ego.”

The 38-year-old Swede, who returned to Milan in January and has contributed four goals since his Rossoneri comeback, was hit by a setback during training last week.

Zlatan should return for the Diavolo this campaign, but his future at Milan is uncertain. Calhanoglu has revealed the veteran has helped get the best out of the current crop at San Siro.

“He is not a new player for Milan. He is a world star and a very experienced player,” Calhanoglu told beIN SPORTS.

“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.

“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.”
