Ibrahimovic was presented with the honour at a ceremony in Milan last night and spoke about his former coach Jose Mourinho who was named ‘Best Manager’.
“I don’t think he has forgiven me for moving to Barcelona,” he smiled. “Of course I miss him. Anyone would miss a man like Mourinho, he has a great personality.”
Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi was crowned ‘Best Italian Player’ while Inter shot-stopper Julio Cesar edged out Juventus star Gianluigi Buffon in the ‘Best Goalkeeper’ category.
