Ibrahimovic Escapes Ban For Blasphemous Utterances

Ac Milan’s Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic finds himself on the wrong side of the law for the umpteenth time as he escaped a ban from league matches after a federal prosecutor decided not to present video footage as evidence against  his charge of blasphemy.

Now Ibrahimovic is a good  player, there is no denying his abilities, however, his ego is just to big. To be honest, when i first read the title of this story, i had already drawn up images in mind as to what he could have said.

Remember this is a player who kicked fellow team mate Antonio Cassano in the head while he was being interviewed after a league victory back in May. Ibrahimovic is thought to have uttered blasphemous remarks in Milan’s 2-0 win over Cagliari earlier in the week.

However, the prosecutor of the case revealed that television footage could not be presented to the sports court.

“[the footage has] a lack of clear elements that endorse the idea of blasphemous expression.”

Meanwhile, talks between AC Milan and Manchester City over the transfer of Carlos Tevez seemed to be progressing well after both parties met on Thursday in a 2 hour meeting that resolved key issues.

According to reports doing the rounds, City are prepared to give into Milan’s plan of getting Tevez on loan, however, the club must honour their promise to buy him at the end of the season.

The Citizens have softned the stance and are eager to see Tevez leave and put the whole saga behind them.  The striker who is currently vacationing in his native Argentina, has not played competitively since September.

It would be amazing to see the conclusion of this transfer as fans are eager to see Carlitos in action for the Rossoneri. However, should the Tevez deal fall apart for whatever reason, Milan will switch their focus to Chelsea striker Fernando Torres.

However, this is a very far fetched option as Chelsea manager Andres Villas-Boas has consistently claimed that Torres is no for sale. Despite his less than impressive form for the Blues, Torres still is considered one of the club’s most influential players.

Thinking about it though, Torres in Milan is a definitely exciting prospect.
