If anyone has a winner's mentality it's Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Swede compared his aversion to losing to Massimiliano Allegri at Juventus following the Italian club's elimination from the quarter finals of the Champions League.

Juve were criticized following their elimination to tournament revelation, Ajax, and Allegri came under the spotlight as a result. Zlatan defended the Italian coach,  telling Corriere dello Sport: "Allegri is right, football is a matter of victories, if you play well and don't win, it doesn't count at all".

The LA Galaxy captain went on to add, "You (journalists) should agree because if we play well and lose we get criticized, but in the end, we think the same way, it's all about winning. Playing well doesn't take you anywhere if you don't win, because that's what's important, to win no matter how."

Zlatan's season

Ibra is having a great season with LA Galaxy. He is on nine goals so far this season, he's also top of the MLS ranking in goals and assists since making his debut in the regular season, and is just two goals away from the leader in the overall goals table.
