Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored for AC Milan but his goal couldn’t prevent AC Milan losing 4-2 to Inter Milan.

Following the game, the superstar has blasted his AC Milan team-mates.

Ibrahimovic scored in the first half after Ante Rebic had opened the scoring. However, Antonio Conte’s side scored twice in three minutes through Marcelo Brozovic and Matias Vecino. Inter then took the lead through Stefan de Vrij with Romelu Lukaku adding a fourth in injury time.

It’s difficult to explain what happened,” Ibrahimovic said. “At half-time we told ourselves, the first 15 minutes going back out there will be crucial, and in that 15-minute spell we conceded two goals.

“We stopped playing, the team stopped believing, we stopped pressing, didn’t pass it around enough. From the equaliser onwards, everything collapsed. I think a lot of it is down to experience, because you must know how to control a game at 2-0 up, not just winning at the end.

“It’s strange, because our first half was practically perfect. I expected more from Inter and the first-half performance did not look like a team worthy of second place. They did after the break.”
