- Zlatan Ibrahimovic has given a PS5 console to all his AC Milan teammates as Christmas gifts
- The 39-year-old beat all other fans scrambling for the product in the market after the launch
- Ibrahimovic helped the Rossoneri move to the top of Serie A this season after seven matches
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has begun his festive celebrations early after gifting each member of the AC Milan squad a PlayStation 5.
Fans scrambled for the product in the market after it was launched but the Swedish striker took the hassle away from his teammates of having to buy it themselves it as he presented it to them as their Christmas presents.
Three members of the Rossoneri were grateful as they took to their Instagram handle to thank the 39-year-old for his gesture towards them.
Three members of the Rossoneri squad including Mateo Musacchio, Samu Castillejo and Rafael Leao took to their Instagram story to thank the ex-PSG star after getting their hands on the in-demand console.
Spanish attacker Castillejo took a picture of the Sony product on his Lamborghini car and thanked the veteran forward on social media.
Portuguese forward Leao could not hide his joy as he said:
"Thanks GOAT for the gift."
Supporters who were unable to buy joked about how Ibrahimovic outwitted them in getting the console.
One fan joked:
"No wonder us plebs couldn't get one, all the bloody footballers got them."
A second added:
"While we’re desperately refreshing a broken Walmart page with a dog dressed like a deer on it just know Zlatan was able to buy and distribute a PS5 to every Milan player."
"This is why I couldn’t get one today then."
A fourth said:
"So that's why no one else can get one."
The Swedish striker has hit top form in the new season scoring eight goals in AC Milan's opening five games including three braces. The 39-year-old is the main reason the Rossoneri are on top of the Serie A table with five wins and two draws from seven matches.
Briefly.co.za previously reported on the striker's Achilles injury and the repercussions people thought it would have on his upcoming season.
The 38-year-old striker joined the Italian League giants earlier this year as a free agent on a short-term loan deal. However, his future on the pitch remained in doubt, especially with his contract with Milan set to expire this summer and an injury to his Achilles tendon.
SportMediaset journalist Pietro Balzano Prota took to Twitter to share his opinion:
"Bad injury for Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Medical tests are expected but it could be a long stop."
He was said to have picked up the terrible injury after returning to Milan's training ahead of Serie A's return in the coming season. However, true to form, Zlatan has returned to play and is back to his usual form.
