Kulusevski: 'Cristiano is fantastic and Zlatan was my idol'

Dejan Kulusevski feels ‘lucky to play with’ Cristiano Ronaldo and said his ‘idol’ Zlatan Ibrahimovic called him after he signed with Juventus.

The Sweden international signed with Juventus in January, but only moved after the 2019-20 season had been completed.

His new life at the Allianz Stadium includes training sessions with players like Portuguese talisman Ronaldo, but Kulusevski knows ‘a war’ awaits him to keep his place in the squad.

U21: Italy shocked in Sweden

Italy suffered a heavy 3-0 defeat away to Sweden in their European Under-21 Championship qualifier, their first loss of the group after five clean sheets.

The Azzurrini had won four and drawn one in Group 1, sitting in second place behind the Republic of Ireland with two games in hand.

Coach Paolo Nicolato’s lads hadn’t even conceded a single goal so far, but playing in pre-season against a nation whose campaign is already in full swing proved disastrous.

Kulusevski sparks Sweden controversy

Juventus attacking midfielder Dejan Kulusevski is causing controversy in Sweden, with Milan star Zlatan Ibrahimovic piling in. ‘It’s an absolute joke.’

The 20-year-old former Parma and Atalanta talent was expected to be in the starting XI when Sweden hosted France in the opening Nations League match last night.

However, he was benched and only came on for the final 20 minutes of a disappointing 1-0 home defeat.

“I think it was strange, but I had to respect the decision,” Kulusevski told reporters after the game.
