Ibrahimovic regrets Ronaldinho departure

Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has expressed his regrets at Ronadinho’s departure from the club. The Brazilian flew back to his homeland this morning and is expected to sign with former club Gremio in the coming days.
Ibra who joined Milan in the summer said that playing with the two-time World Player of the Year was a great pleasure but he understood his decision to pursue new avenues in search of more playing time.
“I’m sorry that he is gone. He was a great player and it was a great honour for me to play alongside him. He was one of the best players of all time and understandably he wanted to be a starter in every game.”
Despite enjoying something of a renaissance last season under Leonardo, Ronaldinho didn’t feature in Massimiliano Allegri’s plans for the Rossoneri and made only 11 starts for the club this term.
“He wasn’t really playing all the time with Allegri but these are decisions for the Coach to make. It is important to be happy, if you’re not it is hard to play, to have that meanness, that joy and that energy needed to do well.
“We are professionals and changing teams is something that happens. The important thing is that Ronaldinho is happy, Ronaldinho has to do what he wants, he knows what he wants from his career”
, continued Ibra.
The Brazilian’s departure from Milan was hastened ever since Antonio Cassano was signed from Sampdoria and Ibrahimovic feels that the newest addition is not the rotten apple which many people depict him to be.
“Antonio a nuisance? “No, he’s a professional, I do not think that we fight, we all work in the same direction. So much depends on what he wants. This situation can not have turned out better than this for him. Now he just has to exploit it for his best.”
Cassano arrived at the Rossoneri after a huge falling-out with Sampdoria President Riccardo Garrone. The temperamental striker may feature for Milan as early as January 6th when they take on Cagliari.
