Ibrahimovic is convinced that the only reason one of the greatest club sides of all time beat his team is that UEFA wanted them to. That's why Mexes was controlled from the stands to make the first ill timed challenge that set Barca on their way. The striker said:
It seems like Uefa wants a certain two teams in the Champions League final. Now I understand how Mourinho feels every time he comes to Camp NouIn fairness, Zlatan definitely should have had a penalty at the start of the second half when he was fouled in the box but what are you gonna do? Give a penalty against Barcelona? Pfffft. Lionel Messi plays for them you know and he's really good.
Pep Guardiola replied by making fun of his old player and suggesting that he was 'just trying to make friends with Mourinho' and then everyone had a quarter pounder with cheese because that is what I would like to eat right now. What a strange coincidence.
