AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic was left cursing former club Barcelona after their controversial Champions League defeat last night. The Swede was bitter against his former teammates after the 3-1 quarter-final defeat at the Nou Camp.

"I don't understand why they awarded the second penalty, but now I know why Mourinho gets so angry when he plays here," sniped the Swede.

"I don't really want to talk after going out of the tournament like this. Everyone saw what happened.

"Barcelona are the strongest team in the world, but we are allowed to play and to do battle. We did well up to their second goal. If that was a penalty, then so was the challenge on me."
