Brahim Díaz: “Zlatan Ibrahimovic is like a father in Milan dressing room.”

AC Milan’s Spanish forward Brahim Díaz has described playing with Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the Italian club.

Speaking at an awards ceremony hosted by Spanish outlet Marca, Díaz said: “Ibrahimovic is my father’s age, but he still makes a difference. For me, he is like a father in the dressing room.

“He has made my life easier because when I have the ball I have to pass it to him and if I don’t he doesn’t get angry.

“He is an incredible player, with great charisma and who loves to win.

“He likes to work in training and he also passes it on to others. He makes all the players better because he pushes you to always give your best.”

Díaz, 22, is on loan from Real Madrid until the end of the 2022/23 season.

In 2021/22, he scored four goals in 40 appearances across all competitions.
