Former Ajax player Andy van der Meyde talks about the ‘scissors’ incident between both Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ahmed Hossam ‘Mido’

Former Ajax winger Andy van der Meyde has talked about Zlatan’s incidents recently including the famous one with Egyptian Ahmed Hossam ‘Mido’.

“I’ll never forget the scissors incident,” said van der Meyde.

“At Ajax, it was always Mido or Zlatan as the first-choice striker as they were  too competitive and arch rivals. They wanted to beat each other all the time.

“After a big game against PSV Eindhoven, which we lost, they were both ranting in the dressing-room. One accused the other one of poor passing, of not giving the right supply. It started on the pitch, but carried on in the dressing room.

“At some stage Mido had had enough and decided to keep his mouth shut, but Zlatan went on and on. He pushed Mido over the limit.”

Van der Meyde then proceeded saying: “Mido was cutting bandages and tape away from his ankle with a pair of scissors. Zlatan was going on again about a poor pass from Mido and then Mido exploded. He threw the scissors right at Zlatan. But they eventually sorted that problem between them.”

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been on fire lately scoring 24 goals in all competitions until now for the Red Devils who have recently qualified for the Round of 16 of the Europa League as well as the EFL Cup final.

Mido on the other hand is on a different trajectory than his former Swedish teammate as he is now manager of eighth placed Wadi Degla who have lost yesterday against Al Ahly in the Egyptian Premier League while having a touchline bust up with opposing manager Hossam El Badry.
