Ibrahimovic feels Messi can win the World Cup.
Ibrahimovic, who continues to rehab his knee while joining AC Milan for a winter training camp in Dubai, praised the other three semifinalists in Doha but said only one team would win. Argentina and semifinalists Morocco will play France on Wednesday to prevent a replay of Russia 2018’s title final. Ibrahimovic said France and Croatia are “powerful nations,” but Messi will win.
“I don’t believe it’s a surprise since I knew they were good before the World Cup,” Ibrahimovic remarked of Morocco; the World Cup is unpredictable.
Maybe surprised they reached the semi-final, but it’s a fantastic team, a good nation. People appreciate surprises because they desire extra adrenaline. Feelings Moroccans beat Spain and Portugal back-to-back to reach semis. Scenes of a devastated Cristiano Ronaldo making his way to the locker room after Portugal’s elimination have been shown throughout the world. Ibrahimovic claimed it doesn’t matter what he says to Ronaldo. Everyone wants to win, but not everyone does.
“Everyone is striving, and if you don’t win, you feel emotional, but differently. Ibrahimovic said he couldn’t comment on Ronaldo’s Manchester United exit since the real story will never be disclosed.
“When he leaves United, we won’t know the full story. Ibrahimovic played two seasons at Manchester United from 2016 to 2018. “The club lies, but I’ll tell you what happened. We’re each unique. Everyone is image-conscious. “Being yourself is my ideal image. The real story, my friend.”
