“The virus challenged me and I defeated it.
But you're not Zlatan, don't challenge the virus.
Respect the rules, distance and mask, always, ”he says in Italian, filmed on a terrace overlooking Milan, before putting on a mask himself.
Italy very affected by the pandemic
The president of Lombardy, Attilio Fontana, explained that he had the idea to enlist Zlatan Ibrahimovic on the night of the derby between the two Milan clubs.
The 39-year-old Swedish veteran, on his return after his 40s, offered victory to AC Milan (2-1) by scoring two goals against Inter.
Like its European neighbors, Italy, one of the countries most affected by the pandemic, has suffered a sharp increase in contagions in recent weeks.
The country has recorded nearly 38,000 deaths for more than 550,000 cases since the end of February.
