Photo: Ibrahimovic spotted in restaurant despite restrictions – an explanation from Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was spotted in a restaurant in Milan which caused a stir among some outlets, but now an explanation has arrived.

As Calciomercato.com writes, the source Fanpage.it published some pictures provided by an anonymous source that show how the Rossoneri striker was at the restaurant ‘Tano pass me the oil’ on Sunday around 13:30, despite the Covid-19 restrictions requiring customers not to sit at tables.

Contacted by Fanpage.it, the chef Simonato confirmed the presence of Zlatan and former Milan full-back Ignazio Abate, denying however that it was just a simple lunch.

“Ibra, Ignazio with another dear friend came to see me, we were there a couple of hours and then they went home. It was something between normal friends, we are friends and we see each other from time to time if we don’t see other friends. They didn’t have lunch, we drank a glass of wine as friends,” he said.

Sources close to Milan provide further clarifications on the story as they state that it was a business meeting, with a limited number of people. No lunch, but a meeting of just over an hour to discuss business. Ibrahimovic followed and continues to follow a protocol that keeps him constantly monitored despite having already had Covid.
