AC secured their first Scudetto for 11 years in Serie A on Sunday (May 22) with a 3-0 away win against Sassuolo. Ibrahimovic came on as a second-half substitute in what could be his final game for the club and even of his career, with the striker now aged 40.
So he made the most of the post-match celebrations, emerging with a bottle of bubbly in one hand and a cigar in the other. The champagne was swiftly sprayed over the crowd as he puffed on the cigar.
Ibrahimovic’s future is now uncertain, but he is set to clear it up in the not too distant future. He said: “I will continue playing if I feel good physically. My decision will be made soon, I had many physical problems but I will decide soon.”
The veteran Swede re-joined his former club in 2020 and immediately declared his intention to win the league with them. “It’s my greatest satisfaction. When I returned, at the press conference, I said that I would bring Milan back to the top,” he continued.
Is Zlatan underrated? Let us know in the comments section.
“Many were laughing and now we are here and we won the Scudetto. We made many sacrifices, but nothing is impossible. I have suffered a lot this year, I will speak in the next few days, but I want to enjoy this trophy.
“When I arrived it was a certain Milan and now it’s another Milan. I passed on what I could to the young people.
“I did everything to be able to help the team even off the pitch. The team was always very helpful, they needed a driver to guide them, I arrived, I did it and we won.”
Ibrahimovic also dedicated the trophy to his late agent Mino Raiolo, declaring: “This Scudetto is for Raiola. It’s the first title I win without Mino by my side.”
