‘Scoring was optional’ – How Ibrahimovic was transformed by Capello at Juventus

The legendary coach says that the Swede was too much of a circus act when he first arrived in his care, while he has revealed his greatest regret

Former Juventus boss Fabio Capello has explained how he gave Zlatan Ibrahimovic a nudge in the right direction to make the Swede become one of the outstanding players of his generation.

Ibrahimovic joined up with Capello at Juve in 2004 from Ajax but the legendary Italian coach explained that at that time the forward was lacking the killer mentality that he has displayed subsequently in his career.

He would go on to score 23 goals in 70 Serie A outings with the Bianconeri, and while he touched even greater heights as his career progressed, Capello has argued that he began to take his profession more seriously while at the Stadio delle Alpi.
