Di Marzio was unimpressed by the Swede's strop after being substituted during their 2-2 draw with Napoli.
He told TMW Radio: “I don't understand seeing these players who at thirty years of age still feel they are in their twenties and who always want to play them all.
"Luckily when Pioli saw him in a bit of a lapse he pulled him out immediately."
Di Marzio added: "If you are clinging onto individual players, Milan will always lag behind. Agree to be a leader of the group and Ibra is the right man, but I am for the total change of this team.
"Who knows if (Ralf) Rangnick will make the right choices, he seems to me an intelligent person and therefore the revolution passes to him."
