[Football] Ibrahimovic s’engage 6 mois avec l’AC Milan !

first_imgMême look, même carrure impressionnante, même ego surdimensionné…et même efficacité? Le Suédois revient, pour un ultime défi, à l’AC Milan pour prouver qu’à 38 ans, il est toujours la mégastar qu’il clame être.Entre son départ des Etats-Unis début novembre et l’officialisation de son retour vendredi, il fallait scruter la rubrique des faits divers pour trouver la trace de l’attaquant. La statue de bronze à son effigie dans sa ville natale de Malmö a été régulièrement dégradée par des fans qui ne lui ont pas pardonné son entrée au capital d’un club rival de Stockholm.Ses sens de la provocation et du contre-pied sont, eux, bien intacts, au point que Zlatan a perdu certains de ses fans de la première heure, qui avaient jusque-là toujours défendu le surdoué du quartier populaire de Rosengard. Aujourd’hui, que reste-t-il de cet enfant prodige, devenu l’un des meilleurs avant-centres de sa génération? À l’AC Milan, club où il a déjà brillé entre 2010 et 2012, il sera question d’héritage pour le joueur qui revendique avoir changé l’histoire de son sport : «Le foot, c’est moi», a-t-il sobrement intitulé sa seconde autobiographie, publiée en 2018.Les lions ne récupèrent pas comme les humainsIbrahimovic, c’est d’abord des saillies imparables. «Maintenant, retournez voir du baseball», a-t-il lancé en guise d’adieu à ses supporters du Los Angeles Galaxy, où il a été, entre 2018 et 2019, le meilleur joueur du Championnat nord-américain, «et de loin», selon ses termes. En Californie, il s’est refait une santé (54 buts en tout), prouvant qu’il avait encore des jambes après plusieurs blessures qui ont précipité son départ de Manchester United, dont une rupture des ligaments croisés d’un genou en 2017. Partager Zlatan le showman avait auparavant servi les médias français lors de son passage remarqué au Paris SG (2012/16), où il avait promis de rester «s’ils remplacent la Tour Eiffel par (sa) statue», de sa grosse voix avec un accent balkanique qui rappelle ses origines. Au PSG, «je suis arrivé comme un roi, je repars comme une légende», a-t-il encore dit en quittant le club où il n’y avait «rien» avant lui.La France? “Pays de merde” qu’il a «placé sur la carte du monde»… Peu de footballeurs peuvent se targuer d’avoir fait réagir à leurs déclarations des éditorialistes et un Premier ministre. Mais la force d’Ibrahimovic, c’est de posséder ce talent à même d’assumer ses piques verbales. Il parle, mais marque aussi des buts d’anthologie, avec un sens du spectacle qui découle en partie de son apprentissage, enfant, des arts martiaux.Il a délecté les fans de ses buts «kung-fu», en extension, ou de ses inspirations géniales comme son retourné de plus de 35 mètres contre l’Angleterre en 2012, ou son slalom en 2004 avec l’Ajax Amsterdam, dribblant six joueurs avant de battre le gardien, qui a lancé sa carrière. Au PSG, il est devenu le meilleur scoreur de l’histoire du club, avec 156 buts en 180 matches, avant d’être dépassé par Edinson Cavani. Deux fois soulier d’or de la Serie A, en 2009 avec l’Inter et en 2012 avec l’AC Milan, il possède aussi le record de la sélection suédoise (62 buts).Sa première année avec Manchester United a été une réussite, avec 28 buts en 46 matches, avant sa déchirure des ligaments d’un genou. Progressivement mis sur la touche, la faute aussi à la concurrence de Romelu Lukaku, «Ibra» a quitté l’Europe en mars 2018 sur une dernière note mitigée.A l’âge où la plupart des joueurs sont sur le déclin, le natif de Malmö tente d’étirer encore une histoire déjà très riche (Ajax Amsterdam, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelone, AC Milan, PSG, Manchester United) où il a presque tout gagné – sauf la Ligue des Champions -, pour s’offrir une porte de sortie à la hauteur de son talent. C’est en outre un professionnel toujours exemplaire, comme l’avait raconté Carlo Ancelotti. Dans un livre, «Mes secrets d’entraîneur», il explique qu’on lui avait présenté Zlatan comme «un joueur difficile à gérer».Mais il a découvert au PSG un joueur «très disponible et professionnel, toujours concentré sur son travail». «Son caractère fascinant et sa constance extraordinaire à l’entraînement ont toujours été des exemples pour ses coéquipiers», exposait encore l’Italienlast_img read more

This was made possible with contributions from North York General Hospital which donated the equipment to the Guyana Christian CharitiesThe three ultrasound machines that were donated on FridayConsulate in Toronto, Canada.During the handing over ceremony in the Ministry’s Brickdam compound, Public Health Minister Volda Lawrence said one of the donated machines will be given to the Diamond Diagnostic Centre, on the East Bank of Demerara; another to the CC Nicholson Hospital at Nabaclis, East Coast of Demerara; and the other machine to the Materials Management Unit of the Ministry.“The collaboration between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Public Health is in consonance with ongoing efforts which include the facilitating of the annual medical outreach by the Canada Guyana Outreach Mission (CANGO) who are members of the Diaspora in Canada,” Minister Greenidge is quoted by the Department of Public Information as saying.Meanwhile, Minister Lawrence emphasised that specialists who are assigned to these facilities would be most grateful because it means the turnaround time of them having information about their patients will be shorter with the improved capacity to administer treatment in a timely manner.The Guyana Christian Charity Canada Inc is a volunteer non-profit organisation that defines itself as dedicated to providing aid and assistance to Guyanese organisations, individuals and others in need.last_img read more
