Irritated Ibrahimovic throws hair band at journalist
Zlatan Ibrahimovic was involved in a new controversy on Sunday as his infamous temperament got the better of him during a post-match interview.
Rumours all week suggested Ibrahimovic had had a bust-up with Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri over the club’s 3-0 defeat at Arsenal in the Champions League.
Ibrahimovic had complained to Swedish journalists following the game that he felt out of position due to the formation his side adopted.
Although Allegri denied there had been a disagreement, in his pre-match press conference on Saturday, Ibrahimovic was asked about it following Sunday’s 2-0 win over Lecce, in which he grabbed the second goal.
Visibly irritated, Ibrahimovic launched his elasticated Alice Band at a female journalist after staring her down and saying: “What the **** are you looking at?”
Milan moved quickly to smooth over matters, stating on their official website that there had later been a telephone call between Ibrahimovic and Sky’s Vera Spadini to “clarify the misunderstanding.”
Ibrahimovic recently served a three-game suspension for having slapped Napoli’s Salvatore Aronica during a league game.
