Watch: Ibrahimovic unmoved despite alleged ethnic slur from Red Star fan in the stands

By Oliver Fisher -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was targeted with an ethnic insult during Milan’s 2-2 draw with Red Star last night, according to a report.

The Swede remained an unused substitute as the Rossoneri twice surrendered a lead and had to settle for a draw in the first leg of their Europa League Round of 32 tie.

According to SportBible, the 39-year-old was abused as he sat in the stands of the infamously hostile Marakana stadium. Footage shows a group of fans shout at him despite the game being played behind closed doors.

The report claims that the tirade was: “You pus**, stinky balija, I fu** you in your mouth.”

Ibrahimovic has a Croatian mother who is Catholic and Muslim Bosniak father who emigrated to Sweden, and the word “balija” is an ethnic insult against people from Bosnia, SportBible claim.
