Zlatan the great

By Glezos Alberganti, La Settimana Sportiva

Another great performance by Zlatan Ibrahimovic granted Inter three valuable points in their 17th title quest (2-0). After struggling in the first half against a brave Lazio side, and with the help of supersubs Hernan Crespo and Patrick Vieira, Mourinho’s men came back on top with another wonder goal by Ibra. The Man From Sweden also set up the second goal for Muntari, and then addressed the 60.000 crowd with a finger pressed on his lips, as to say: “Everybody shut up, I rule”.

With four games to go, Milan are still 7 points clear: the Rossoneri had an easy game at Catania (0-2), against a team sitting comfortably at mid-table. Inzaghi and Kakà scored the goals, and David Beckham played his usual mediocre game, before sitting on the bench in the second half. On their part, Juventus enraged their supporters with a home draw against struggling Lecce. After being one-nil down in the first half, Juve came back thanks to a brace by Pavel Nedved. The equalizer (a header by Barreto) came in injury time again, and after the final whistle the tension between fans, players and club was at its highest. Rumours about Claudio Ranieri resigning from his manager seat were doing the rounds last night.

Genoa CFC won the derby against Sampdoria (3-1), with a trick hat by exceptional striker Diego Milito. The Prince from Argentina scored his 19th goal of the season, and rumours are high about his transfer to FC Inter next season, where he could form a deadly pair with Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Genoa renewed their Champions League aspirations, now being only one point behind fourth placed Fiorentina.

The relegation battle will be an intense affair between Torino, Bologna, Lecce and Reggina. If four games mean the end of the season for the title race, things still look in full swing in the relegation zone.

    I thought Neved retired ages ago, he must be like 43 now?

    I would like to see Ibrahimovic do that on the world stage and in the Champions League
