"Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a real champion and we would have signed him had it not been for the injustice of the Calciopoli penalties and trial. It had all been decided, then the delays meant it went the way we all saw," he said of the Inter star.
"Am I angry? No, just disappointed to see him play with an Inter jersey. The only mistake I can say our transfer guru Ariedo Braida made was not pointing out Zinedine Zidane. He brought us Christophe Dugarry without realising there was this incredible talent in the same side."
