London [U.K], Mar.22 (ANI): Manchester United star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed that his differences with the then Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola continues to drive him on. The Sweden striker moved from Inter Milan to Camp Nou in 2009, but he lasted only for one season at Barcelona and was moved to AC Milan due to a fall out with Guardiola. Ibrahimovic, who has always been outspoken in his criticism of Guardiola since then, said that although the duo has moved on from their feud, he remains motivated as he prepares to face current Manchester City manager once again in the derby next month. "I learned from Barcelona, both on and off the pitch. I learned that in football any situation can change in 24 hours," the Guardian quoted Ibrahimovic as saying. "The problem wasn't with me, it was with him, and he never came to terms with it. I don't know what his problem was with me. It is something that drives me, gives me adrenaline and extra motivation. It is normal after what has happened. I'm using it as a positive, not negative," he added. United will head to the Etihad Stadium on April 7 in what could be a crucial clash in the battle for the top four in Premier League.(ANI)
