Mourinho Furious Over Ibrahimovic

Ibrahimovic has had a depressing time of things with injuries this calendar year, and missed a large portion of Inter’s Scudetto run-in due to a chronic knee injury.

The problem also complicated his Euro 2008 tournament with Sweden, and there were fears that these issues were all set to continue into the 2008/09 campaign when he limped off the pitch, last month, just 20 minutes into his first pre-season training session with the Nerazzurri.

The 26-year-old only returned to training a few weeks ago, and had been working his way back into action, impressing during the Amsterdam Tournament last week, and starting the 1-0 win over Ajax.

Mourinho has been key not to push Ibrahimovic for the fear of a relapse, and he is said to be absolutely furious after hearing that the forward has been called up by Sweden coach Lars Lagerback for the country’s friendly with France next week.

This has all been made worse by the injury sustained by fellow striker Adriano today, with initial reports suggesting that the Brazilian could be sidelined for an extended period of time.
