Statements by Bojan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s partner during his time at Barcelona in 2009/10.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic represented Barcelona in the 2009/10 season, having not left Camp Nou as a reference club. However, in an interview with the newspaper ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’, Bojan, who shared the dressing room with the Swedish international under the ‘blaugrana’ emblem, praised the current Milan player, believing that he does not was not treated with the respect due to him in Spain. . .

“To hope [Zlatan Ibrahimovic] keep playing a few more seasons, it’s a phenomenon. Memories? When I think of him, I think of the speech he gave me when I had just arrived in Barcelona. I was 20, he was already Zlatan. He didn’t know me, so he called me to the locker room, to be close to him, and he started to give me confidence. “Don’t worry, I’m here.” Friends always ask me for a comment or to sum up their “I” in one word. I always say “big heart”. And that’s it, every match in training was a challenge that I had to win at all costs, but it’s already known,” he began by saying.

“No one can say anything bad about Ibra. I think he didn’t get the respect he deserved that year, also because he scored decisive goals everywhere. He was tough, but he never lacked a heart. He was and always will be an example,” he concluded. .
