Zlatan Ibrahimovic was so pumped up for AC Milan’s critical Serie A match versus Atalanta on Sunday that he cracked the team bus’ windscreen. Thousands of supporters greeted the Swedish striker and his colleagues as they arrived at the San Siro Stadium.
With a 2-0 win over Atalanta, Milan got one step closer to their first Scudetto win since 2011, and the presence of so many ardent fans flooding the streets and backing the team triggered a crazy reaction from Zlatan.
Ibrahimovic was an unused sub for the match, but he was instrumental in motivating the players on the drive to the stadium, unintentionally causing damage to the Milan team bus.
Hundreds of Milan fans crowded the roads around San Siro as the club chases the Serie A title, and Ibrahimovic leaned closer to the bus driver to get a better view. The 40-year-old then began pounding on the windshield to excite the supporters even more, but he used too much power, resulting in breakage in the glass.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and AC Milan are on the verge of clinching the Serie A 2021-22 title
In this campaign for AC Milan, the Sweden striker has scored eight goals in 26 appearances across all competitions. And after Milan defeated Atalanta 2-0 thanks to strikes from Rafael Leao and Theo Hernandez, he appears to be on his way to adding yet another league trophy to his trophy cabinet.
Milan will have to beat their opponent when they visit Sassuolo next weekend to complete the season as champions. Rivals Inter, who are two points behind the Rossoneri in the second spot, will hope to take advantage of any errors when they face Sampdoria that same day.
As for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, his future after this campaign is still unknown. According to reports from February, he will be given another one-year contract extension, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet. It’s probable that he’ll decide to retire from football, especially if Milan wins the league next weekend.
