Inter Star Ibrahimovic Silences Fans

Inter striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic proved decisive again in tonight's win against Lazio, but he showed signs of nervousness and unrest when the fans whistled him before his opening goal.
Until his opening goal in tonight's match against Lazio, Inter star Zlatan Ibrahimovic wasn't having a great game, which led to some sections of the home crowd to voice their disapproval with jeers and whistles.

'Ibra' clearly got nervous about this and started showing it, pointing his finger to his mouth and asking the fans to stop jeering him. However, it also provoked a reaction of pride by the Swedish star, who in the 58th minute scored with one of his trademark individual stunners, dribbling past an opponent and firing a bullet from distance that left the goalkeeper without a chance.

After that, Ibrahimovic repeated the same gesture toward the fans, just more emphatically. If that wasn't enough, he also provided the inspiration for the second goal with a brilliant assist for Sulley Muntari.

It's likely the fans were also upset with the player after he recently admitted that he wouldn't mind a new experience after five years in Serie A. He also said that Inter needed to improve their standard of football if they are to succeed in the Champions League, a trophy Ibrahimovic is desperate to win.
