Zlatan Ibrahimovic was able to perform at the San Remo music festival on Thursday evening, although the striker needed the help of an AC Milan fan with a scooter.

39-year-old Ibrahimovic is one of the presenters at the Sanremo Music Festival this entire week.

On Thursday, a duet with Bologna coach Sinisa Mihajlovic was scheduled, but the Swede did not appear on the podium.

When Ibrahimovic finally showed up just before 11 p.m., he explained that an accident and a long traffic jam on the highway had caused the considerable delay.

"After three hours in the car, I told my driver to get out," said the attacker, who had trained Thursday morning at Milanello, the Milan training complex which is about 3.5 hours from San. Remo lies.

"I stopped a scooter driver who came by and asked if he could take me to San Remo. Luckily he was a fan of Milan. I was 60 kilometers behind him," said Ibrahimovic, who shared a video showing him as proof. on the scooter with helmet and mask on.

The performance of the Milan striker and the Bologna trainer had already been announced weeks ago.

Ibrahimovic's foray into the music festival sparked quite a bit of criticism in Italy, as Milan has not been performing very well in recent weeks and playing many matches.

Ibrahimovic got injured on his upper leg in the match against AS Roma (1-2 win) on Sunday, so he could not have played this week.

He was a spectator at the Serie A duel with Udinese (1-1) in San Siro on Wednesday evening and was then only in contact with the festival in San Remo via a video connection.
