“Ibra Couldn’t Shoot”

Ex-England and Juventus boss Fabio Capello has claimed credit for making Zlatan Ibrahimovic the player he is today, saying the Swede could not shoot when he turned up at Juventus.

The enigmatic striker arrived in Turin from Ajax in 2004 with a blossoming reputation, but was considered to be a rough diamond in need of some polishing.

Capello says he helped in that process, as the raw talent was refined and put on a path which has taken him to the very top of the game via Inter, Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United.

Capello, who spent two years with Juve after leaving Roma, insists that he never had any problems with Ibrahimovic, even if he can be a bit of a handful at times.
