Zlatan Ibrahimovic: AC Milan striker's dressing room speech after Serie A win

Zlatan had AC Milan players hyped with inspirational dressing room speech after Serie A win

AC Milan won their first Scudetto since 2011 on Sunday evening.

Milan went into their match away at Sassuolo knowing a win would see them crowned champions.

And they did just that with a dominant performance at the Mapei Stadium.

Milan raced into a three-goal lead after 36 minutes played courtesy of goals from Olivier Giroud (2) and Franck Kessie.

There were no further goals as Milan ended their 11-year wait to be crowned Italian champions.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was part of Milan’s Serie A winning sides in 2011 and 2022.

He gave an inspirational speech in the dressing room after they ended their title drought. Watch it below…

“Get everybody in here!” He started.

“Guys, stay calm. I’m not about to say goodbye. Guys, from day one… when I arrived, then others arrived after. Very few believed in us.

“But when we understood we needed to make sacrifices, suffer, believe and work, when this happened, we became a group.

“And when you’re a group, you can achieve the things we’ve achieved. Now, we’re the Champions of Italy.

“First of all, I want to thank all the players.

“We also want to thank Paolo (Maldini), Ricky (Massara) and Ivan (Gazidis).

“It hasn’t been easy but we’ve been a real group this season. At the beginning of the campaign, no one believed in us but through these principles, we became stronger. I’m very proud of all of you.

“Now do me a favour: celebrate like champions. Because it isn’t Milan that belongs to AC Milan, Italy belongs to AC Milan!”

Zlatan then flips a table and the whole dressing room goes crazy in celebration.

What a speech from the Swede.

He’s now 40 years old and there are doubts whether he will continue playing the sport.

Despite his age, he still offers a lot both on and off the pitch.

Regardless of whether he hangs up his boots or not, there’s no disputing that he’s one of the greatest ever strikers to ever play the game.
