Zlatan Ibrahimovic smashed the window of an AC Milan bus as he greeted fans
Zlatan (briefly) forgot his own strength
AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic accidentally smashed a window on the AC Milan team coach as he cheered on fans outside the San Siro stadium.
The Milan players were greeted by a boisterous crowd as they arrived at the San Siro ahead of their clash with Atalanta on Sunday.
Stefano Pioli’s side knew a victory would put them on the verge of securing a first Serie A title in 11 years ahead of next weekend’s final game against Sassuolo.
As the team bus approached the historic ground, Ibrahimovic looked a bit carried away as the players and fans tried to pump themselves up.
The 40-year-old started tapping on the front window while soaking up the incredible atmosphere. However, the Swede clearly forgot about his own strength and ended up breaking the glass instead.

Luckily the crack was only small and no one was hurt as a result, with Ibrahimovic’s antics clearly having a positive impact as fans roared the Rossoneri for a 2-0 win over Gian Piero Gasperini’s side .

Despite a disappointing first half, Pioli’s men performed well in the second half to extend their Serie A unbeaten run to 15 games with their fifth successive league success.
“I had to say goodbye to the fans, it’s a year that excites me. It’s not over yet, we have to be determined and calm,” said Pioli.
“I’m very satisfied, because we played against a strong team who created difficulties for us. We played well in the attacking phase and we found solutions.
“We never lost our clarity and we always believed in it, so victory is a well-deserved reward.
“I live very normal weeks, because I see the positive attitude of my players. We have an important path, coming from two years spent together. The boys make me proud.”
Can Inter Milan create a surprise?
