Mancini hits out at ''provocative'' Ibrahimovic

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will come face to face with his former club on Wednesday as Barcelona travel to Inter Milan to kick off the defence of their Champions League crown, but will face a hostile reception from some of his old team-mates.

After claiming earlier this week that the Nerazzurri should be thankful for his time in Milan as "they had won nothing for 17 years," the Swede has come under fire from Inter's Brazilian midfielder Mancini.

"He has done important things with us and won three Scudetti, but his remarks struck me as a bit provocative and exaggerated," the winger reacted in the Corriere dello Sport.

"Everyone is entitled to his own opinion and we need to respect that, but it's not like he says: Inter have existed for 100 years and had won trophies before his arrival."

Centre-back Marco Materazzi has also reacted strongly to the comments, claiming: "He helped us win three Scudetti, but we were a team. Thank you, Ibra, for the three titles, and we'll see you on Wednesday."

The Beneamata fans are expected to give Ibrahimovic a hostile reception, but Materazzi would prefer a different tack.

"The thing that can hurt a person the most is indifference," he concluded.
