Zlatan Ibrahimovic announced that he would not renew his contract after the 2019/20 season ended. But withdrew his intention to remain with AC Milan.
In the winter-2020 transfer window, Ibra left LA Galaxy to return to Milan. During the half of the season, Ibra played 20 games and scored 11 goals. Ibra was surprised to explode at the age of 39. After the Milan rescue, Ibra considered retiring, but changed to extend the contract for another year.
In the 2020/21 season, Ibra showed impressive scoring performance. He played 10 matches in Serie A, scoring 11 goals. Ibra’s sublimation performance is the key factor to help Milan lead the Serie A 2020/21 rankings with 23 points after 9 rounds.
The red half of Milan is making a 5-point difference with the team behind Inter Milan and Sassuolo. When leading Inter Milan, Maicon is Mourinho’s preferred option for the right-back position.
However, he specially ranked legendary Javier Zanetti for this position. Zanetti is a versatile player, ready to play well in the positions of defenders and midfielders.
Terry and Ricardo Carvalho are Chelsea’s number one midfield pair at the start, led by Mourinho. After that, Mourinho reunited Carvalho at Real Madrid.
Mourinho convinced the Real leadership to recruit Mesut Oezil. Oezil’s appearance caused Kaka to lose his main stone position at Real. Coach Mourinho once said: “Oezil is the player with the smartest brain I have ever seen”.
Unfortunately, Mourinho and Oezil have not been able to reunite since they both left Real. For Mourinho, Lampard is a rarity with a persistent, effective and excellent game in his ability to sniff the goal.
Lampard played nearly 100 matches in all competitions, scoring 39 goals for Chelsea. That was the period when Lampard played the most sublimation under Mourinho’s hand.
Didier Drogba has all the qualities of the aspiring striker Mourinho, which is strength, speed, endurance, technique and impressive aerial combat.
