Zlatan Ibrahimovic. We loathed him when he donned the serpentine kit of Inter. We mocked him when he failed to show up consistently on the European stage, causing Inter to exit the Champions League prematurely. Finally, we laughed even more when Inter sold the Swedish hitman to Barcelona because Ibra felt that he had a better shot at the Champions League playing for the Catalan side - and we all know how that turned out.
Barcelona holds a prejudice towards any striker hovering above 170cm, so naturally Ibra wasn't the missing piece to the metaphorical puzzle of Barca's Champions League trophy aspirations. Now, Milan have acquired him for one third the price, and he has been performing better than any other pure striker in the world.

Hope everyone enjoyed their Holidays but now it's time to embark on another roller coaster ride of emotions through the second half of the Serie A season. I don't remember writing another article where I feel like I have so many topics to cover.
If you didn't catch the Milan 4-4 Udinese match, you missed out on one of the most enthralling Serie A matches in years. See the HD highlights here. Milan remarkably managed a draw despite the best sabotage efforts of Bonera & Amelia.
