Barcelona’s Ibrahimovic returns to Inter as Champions League titans prepare to clash once more

Barcelona and Inter Milan are ready to lock horns again. After the Catalonians dealt with Inter with relative comfort in the group stage – winning 2-0 at home and drawing 0-0 in Italy – Tuesday’s game will prove to be a much sterner test as Jose Mourinho seeks to land Inter their first European Cup since the 1960s and first of the Champions League era.

One player who will be particularly relishing the tie is Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and few players divide opinion more than the Swede. To his doubters he is a lazy, overpaid big-game bottler. To his worshippers, a flamboyant and magical embodiment of how the game should be played. Arguably, he is the complete attacker, although it seems he has still not done enough to convince his critics. To have any hope of overturning this negative attitude towards the striker, it helps to try to dispel the myths so easily associated with Ibra.

‘He doesn’t turn up for the big games’ is the trademark clich
