“Whoever wants to stop me must kill me.” With these words, Zlatan Ibrahimovic responded to a question asked to him years ago about the way he played football, and as usual, the media reported the statement, and it was ridiculed on social media.

Years later, Ibrahimovic proved the truth of his statement, when he returned to his old club, Milan, looking for a new challenge, on the verge of his forties, and then confirmed that he was returning to win with the Rossoneri a major championship, and decided the Italian League.

Once again, the controversy sparked and his statements received a fair amount of irony as well, as Milan was then far from the front of the Calcio and absent for years from its favorite Champions League.

Soon, Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s fingerprints were evident on the team, and he became an inspiration for a group of young people under the leadership of a coach who did not win any title in his history, Stefano Pioli, and led them to return to the Champions League again after years of absence.

This was proof enough of Ibrahimovic’s ability and influence, but he never forgot his old promise to return the Scudetto to Milan again, and indeed the Italian League returned to Milan under the leadership of Zlatan and Pioli for the first time in 11 years.

The Swede’s celebration of the Rossoneri’s victory in Calcio was also controversial, as he entered the field smoking a cigar with which he ascended to the podium, in a scene that impressed some and criticized others.

What is the secret of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s celebration of Milan’s victory in the Italian League by smoking a cigar? Together we try to find an answer in the following lines.

How did Zlatan Ibrahimovic celebrate cigars?

Before delving into the reasons why Zlatan Ibrahimovic celebrated smoking a cigar after Milan’s Serie A win, we must first watch the scene, which spread like wildfire right after the Rossoneri lifted the Scudetto.

The coronation rites in the Italian League require that the players of the winning team leave the field, then they enter and the coach enters again after setting up the platform for the celebration in turn, in order for each of them to receive the greeting of the audience.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic participated as a substitute in the Milan-Sassuolo match, and of course he left the field at the end of the match, then it was his turn to enter and greet the audience, so he entered while lighting a cigar.

What is the secret of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s cigar celebration?

When we talk about smoking, it is one of the most bad habits that affect the health of the individual and society, and it is a disgraceful behavior for football players and athletes as a whole, and it has already destroyed the career of a number of players before.

However, there are many of us who usually want to celebrate the break from the norm, which is the usual behavior of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and following the statements of the Swede from the beginning of his career with the footballing witch, we are faced with the fact that he is one of the most eccentric players in the history of football.

Ibrahimovic did not talk about why he celebrated with cigars after Milan won the Serie A, but his statements after the match and the celebration of the Scudetto can come out with a clear answer, which is that Zlatan wanted to respond to everyone who mocked him when he confirmed that he wanted to win a major championship with Milan upon his return, but on his own way.

The most critics and cynics of Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the time were from within Italian society, which has similar customs that may be alien to our Arab and oriental traditions in general, such as lighting a cigar after reaching a goal or victory.

This appeared on a number of well-known sports faces in Italian football, most notably Marcello Lippi, who smoked cigars after every match, as well as current Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti, who does the same thing.

What are Ibrahimovic’s statements after Milan won the Italian League?

Zlatan Ibrahimovic spoke to DAZN after Milan’s victory in the Italian league with statements that may give us an answer to the reason for his celebration mentioned above, as he recalled what he said in his presentation conference and the reactions to it.

“When I came back here, I remember one of the journalists at the conference saying that people who go back to their previous clubs usually do worse,” Zlatan said after winning the Scudetto.

Ibrahimovic added, “I told him that I would fight for the team’s return and to win the Scudetto. No one believed me, but we are here now.”

And the Sultan added: “We worked hard and made a lot of sacrifices, and thanks to the work there is nothing impossible, but I think I was useful to this group off the field.”

Zlatan Ibrahimovic expressed with these words how much pressure he experienced in recent years after returning to Milan again, especially after his statements, which were not taken seriously, that he would fight for the team’s return and win the Italian League.

This may explain why Ibrahimovic lit a cigar at Milan’s Scudetto celebrations, to convey a clear message he said in his statement to all those who mocked him: “We are here now”.

Zlatan talked about Mino Raiola, his agent, who passed away before the end of the 2021-22 season, and gave the Calcio victory to him, especially since he advised him to return to Milan again.

Ibrahimovic said: “The gift to Mino Raiola. This is my first cup without him. When I decided to return to Europe I was close to Napoli, so I asked him where I can make the difference, and he replied that I could save Milan.”

How old is Zlatan Ibrahimovic?

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is already over forty years old. He was born on October 3, 1981. He was born and raised in the Swedish city of Malmo, from a Bosnian father, Shafik Ibrahimovic, and a Croatian mother.

Zlatan’s answer came to the English newspaper The Sun, where he said: “I’m a little scared of the possibility of stopping playing. Of course I will continue as long as possible, as long as I can get results but I have to be good on the field, without suffering.”

The Sultan continued, “I do not want to regret after retiring, so I want to maximize my career. I do not know what will happen in the future, and as I wrote in my book, I am terrified.”
