Zlatan Ibrahimovic couldn’t resist one last jab at the opposition’s fans last night as Hellas Verona supporters booed the start of his farewell speech.
With Verona beaten 3-1 on the field meaning they will play in a relegation play-off against Spezia to save their Serie A status, the night still belonged to Ibrahimovic as he announced his retirement from football in an emotional ceremony.
As he grabbed the microphone to begin addressing the fans there were some jeers and chants from the visiting Verona fans, and it would be fair to say that Ibrahimovic put them in their placed.
“Keep booing, this is the biggest moment in your season because you get to see me,” he said.
