Inter Milan midfielder Sulley Muntari has become the latest player to blast Zlatan Imbrahimovic for the recent swipe of his former club.
The Swedish marksman, who left Inter for Wednesday's UEFA Champions League opponents Barcelona in a summer move which also saw Samuel Eto'o head in the opposite direction, claimed the Italian side's domestic success over the last three years was down to him.
The 27-year-old's comments sparked a reaction from former team-mates Marco Materazzi and Mancini who totally disagreed with the striker's claims and Muntari has now voiced his opinion on the matter ahead of the European showdown.
The Ghana midfielder told skysports.com": I am not bothered by what the guy says about him (self), everyone gives an importance to themselves, and the guy is full of himself.
"It is the first time I hear he is the player who can win against 11 men. He attacks, he scored, he defends.
"If he thinks he has won on his own, may god continue to bless him."
Imbrahimovic, meanwhile, hopes he will get a good reaction on his return to the Nerazzurri.
"It's a good sensation coming back to Milan. It will be a great match," Imbrahimovic told Italian press at the airport.
"I haven't seen Inter matches, but I say that from results they are doing good things. I'm happy for Eto'o.
"Should they talk positively of me I'll be happy."
