Ibrahimovic blasts Pep Guardiola over Old Trafford burst up

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has blasted Pep Guardiola following the 2-1 defeat to Jose Mourinho’s side on Sunday, according to reports.

Ibrahimovic labelled his former boss as boss the “most immature coach” he’s ever worked with in his career.

The big Swede worked under Guardiola while in Barcelona where he endured a terrible season after he approached Guardiola over his management of Lionel Messi.

The Swede is quoted by AS: “I told Guardiola that he had sacrificed the other players for Messi. He told me he understood me. After that, I was on the bench the next game, the next and the next.

“Since then, he neither spoke to me nor looked at me. I would enter a room and he would leave. I would go to meet him and he would go elsewhere. I understood that there was something beyond football.

“The problem was his, he was the one who had not solved the problem with me. I read that the same thing had happened to (Mario) Mandzukic and (Samuel) Eto’o. He’s not the worst coach I’ve worked with, but he’s the most immature because a man solves his problems.”

Guardiola made Ibrahimovic pay for his action by dropping him on the bench match after match.
