Zlatan Ibrahimovic declared yesterday, after the match that Milan lost in the land of Udinese (3-1), in which they broke a record in Serie A, a generous gesture made by his teammate. Benacer entering his hotel room before the meeting in Udine.
Since Ibrahimovic returned to the pitch on February 26 against Atalanta after injury time, the Swedish striker has had to settle for substitutes. But in yesterday’s game against Udinese, Zlatan started for the first time in 14 months, and he did so as the captain of the team.
The Swede restored confidence by equalizing from the penalty spot to make it 1-1, becoming the all-time top scorer in Serie A, breaking Milan icon Alessandro Costacurta’s previous record. “I am proud to be part of the history of this amazing club,” he said.
Actually, Ismael Bennacer is already planned to be the captain in the absence of Theo Hernández, Olivier Giroud and Davide Calabria. After the game, Ibrahimovic revealed that his teammates made an exception to give him the bracelet. “Ismael (Bennacer) came to my room before the game and told me that he wanted me to be the captain. ‘Okay,’ I said, ‘then I’ll take the pressure off and put it on myself,’ I answered. .”
