Former teammate Filippo Inzaghi believes there is only one reason Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned to AC Milan, and that’s the football.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic had his pick of suitors when he announced he was leaving the LA Galaxy.

If you believed Zlatan they were lining up out of the door desperate to sign him.

However, for some strange reason, he chose AC Milan. Ibrahimovic himself did say he loved the city and the club.

But a former teammate believes it is far simpler than that.

Filippo Inzaghi played alongside the big Swede and has nothing but great things to say about him.

Speaking to Corriere Della Sera he admits its a great signing for the Rossoneri. But most importantly Zlatan is there for the most important reason of all.

He said:

“They’ve done well. He was needed.”

“I played with him and I respect him a lot.”

“It seems to me that he has already shown this during his first games.”

“Even during his debut, his weight was noticed.”

“He doesn’t need money or glory. If he’s back, it means that he believes he can make a mark.”
