Ibisevic has been named as 1 of the 16 players listed for the opening game on Saturday against Rennes. He will be on the bench to start and hopefully he gets on and gets some minutes.
Been reading some of the French Newspapers, and in leparisien.fr it says that Ibisevic is really impressing. Right now Ljuboja and Reinaldo are leading the attack, while Pauleta is still not 100%, so he is starting on the bench as well. It mentions that in about a month, Pauleta will get his spot back and start games, but it says that Ibisevic is seriously making a case to get the 2nd attacking place, since he has looked like the most prolific striker the last few days (I guess training matches).
That would be amazing, for me, even if he gets to come off the bench for the rest of season, and get 20 minutes each game Since, even just recently, that was not expected, people expected that he may get 1 or 2 games over the whole season and mainly just watch.
