Zlatan Ibrahimovic has appealed to Inter Milan fans to back the players after they were booed during last night's 2-0 victory over Lazio.

Ibrahimovic scored one and created the other and he said: "The crowd only motivated me further.

"I scored and only did my job on the field. The rest does not count. Straight after the game, it is all forgotten.

"In the first half we didn't play very well, but in the second it went better and we picked up these very important three points. It wasn't easy, but it went well in the end."

The Swede's reaction does fuel speculation he will demand a transfer at the end of the season.

"I always reply on the pitch to whatever is said about me during the week. I am happy today because we won, although it's a shame I will be suspended for the next game and won't be able to help my teammates."
