Inter Milan's Ibrahimovic: More to Juventus exit than Calciopoli

Inter Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic says there was more to his departure from Juventus than the Calciopoli scandal.

"I didn't leave the Bianconeri because of Calciopoli. Something didn't happen between the club and I, and I had already decided to go away before the scandal," Ibrahimovic told Sfide.

"Milan also wanted me, but I soon chose Inter without problems. I have never given a damn about the rivalry with Juventus.

"In Turin I felt like a superstar, but the club that taught me the most was Ajax. They taught me more things than any other club.

"In Italy, England and Spain they look for players who are already ready. They want results quickly. At Ajax it's different.

"They shape you with training and discipline," Ibrahimovic said.
