AC Milan keeper Tatarusanu: Ibrahimovic red changed Coppa tie

AC Milan goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu says Zlatan Ibrahimovic's dismissal decided their Coppa Italia defeat to Inter Milan.

Tatarusanu was only playing because Gianluigi Donnarumma was suspended, but made several big saves to keep his team in it until the stoppage-time Christian Eriksen free kick.

“I am in good shape, I take care of myself, so if there isn't an injury, I hope to play on for another five or six years. I am a professional, I train every day to my best so that I'm ready when called upon," he said.

The match was overshadowed by the brawl between Romelu Lukaku and Ibrahimovic.

"We fought from start to finish, it was a great game, unfortunately Ibra's second yellow changed the match.

“These things happen, it's not the first time two players have clashed. I didn't hear what they said."
