Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the Milan forward, remarked the return leg of the Europa League 1/8 final against Manchester United (0-1, first game 1-1).
“We played well in both games, and we produced openings. But that’s the essence of football: if you don’t score, you don’t win. If you don’t take your chances, the game becomes more complex, and your rivals make opportunities for you. Man United converted one of them. You have to pay for the mistakes,” Ibrahimovic told the UEFA website.
“We’re all sad because we had two nice games, but we’re leaving because we missed today’s target, which we shouldn’t have missed. However, you will learn from those experiences. Let us now consider the forthcoming matches.
When I fired with my head, I was assured that the ball would land in the net. However, it turned out that I fired it too centrally. It was clear, but it was intercepted by the goalkeeper.”
