EDF: 'Ibrahimovc was decisive again'

Cagliari coach Eusebio Di Francesco praised ‘decisive’ Milan forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic and said the Rossoblu must learn how to suffer.

The Casteddu are left at 17th in Serie A after 18 games, as the Rossoneri return to the fashion capital with a 2-0 win from the Sardegna Arena.

“Too bad for the second goal, arriving from a ball that’s not easy to read,” Di Francesco told Sky Sport Italia. “Too bad for the penalty we didn’t get, but when times are difficult, everything doesn’t go your way.”

The Rossoblu tactician praised veteran Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who scored another brace to give Milan the three points.

“Ibra is smarter and more experienced. Even today, he was decisive,” Di Francesco added. “We were not very good in the last play, finishing the many chances we created.

“The result and the points are lacking, they weigh us down in this table.”

The coach added his Cagliari side must learn how to suffer, like their opponents did tonight.

“Milan take the game home because they know how to suffer, but we still pay from this point of view."
