ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC wore a unique new look when he met his AC Milan teammates on Saturday.
The striker, 40, is currently sidelined with an ACL injury, but met his teammates in the locker room after their 4-2 win over Udinese.
But he looked very different when he tied his hair into a long, braided ponytail that reached down to his lower back.
Ibrahimovic has worn the haircut before and it brought him good luck when he scored in a 2–0 win over Lazio last season.
The Swede also took to Instagram to show off his stylish new look, captioning it: “The future is bright”.
And fans loved the new haircut, as some compared Ibrahimovic to actor Steven Seagal and cartoon character Mercenary Tao of Dragonball Z fame.
Ibrahimovic was filmed giving his teammates a high five after Udinese’s win and he is delaying his reintegration into the team after his knee surgery in May.
Ibrahimovic returned to Milanello’s training ground earlier this week to continue his physiotherapy taking a picture of his legs that caught the attention of fans.
Ibra is expected to be out of action for eight months, but his bulky, veined legs suggest the veteran could make a speedy recovery.
The star of Milan played the last six months of last season WITHOUT ACL while helping Milan to the Serie A title.
He said of that period: “For the past six months I played without an ACL in my left knee. A swollen knee for six months.
“I’ve only been able to train with the team ten times in the last six months.
“Took over 20 injections in six months. Empty the knee once a week for six months.
“Painkillers every day for six months. I barely slept because of the pain for six months.”
