Zlatan Ibrahimovic is good at football. Sometimes.

According to former Manchester United and AC Milan legend Massimo Taibi,  Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the real key to Arsenal's undoing in tonight's Champions League match between the two sides.  Unless he decides to play like Zlatan Ibrahimovic normally does in important european games.


Ibrahimovic has been incredibly awesome for years and years but never seems to show off his actual skills when he plays against important teams, so tonight in Italy there's every chance that he might just forget that he's meant to be good.  Taibi in his pre-game interview:
"If it is Ibra’s [Zlatan Ibrahimovic] day and he plays as we know he can, he could cause a crisis in the Arsenal defence," the former Milan goalkeeper told Goal.com.

"This department is, in fact, the weak point of [Arsene] Wenger's team and I think Arsenal must fear the attack of Milan - rather than vice versa, despite the extraordinary form of Van Persie

"Ibra is a crucial player for the Rossoneri when he’s at 100 percent."
Arsene Wenger's tactics are believed to include getting his players to keep tapping Ibrahimovic on one side of the shoulder and walking past him on the other, alongside informing him that his shoelaces are undone, when actually they aren't.  The constant confusion caused by this incredible ruse should be enough to drive the Swedish striker into a state of madness and thus allow the Arsenal defenders to focus on just trying not to act like absolute retards once they are already winning.  If I was Wenger I'd have taken the Champ Manager disc out and thrown it into the sea by now.
