Daniele De Rossi relieved Zlatan Ibrahimovic is no longer with Sweden
The Italian midfielder, whose national team face Sweden in the decisive World Cup play-off matches, is happy the injured United striker retired a year ago
''The fact there there’s no Ibrahimovic is an advantage for anyone who has to face them. Even at 40 with a broken leg I’d never want Ibra against me. It could be an advantage, it’s certainly better that he’s not there.
''It’s not that the rest of them are strangers though, we know them because some of them play in Italy and others play in important European leagues. They’re no mugs.''
