Reporter wants to sue Zlatan Ibrahimovic for ‘hitting’ her with his car

Standing in the middle of the street is never a good idea -- especially when you're a reporter holding a microphone in the path of footballers trying to flee the training ground. One reporter outside of Milan's Milanello complex apparently thought that not only standing in the middle of the street, but sticking her microphone out to moving cars would be a great way to get an interview. Instead, she caught the sideview mirror of Zlatan Ibrahimovic's Audi A3 in the arm.

According to La Gazzetta dell Sport, an ambulance arrived a short time later to treat the woman, who mentioned plans to sue Zlatan for what happened. Milan, however, has released an official statement clearing Ibra from any wrongdoing.

A.C. Milan wishes to communicate that objective information regarding the incident means that Zlatan Ibrahimovic cannot in any way be held responsible for an event which occurred yesterday and has been widely reported by the media.

Considering the face slaps and head kicks Ibrahimovic usually inflicts on others, a mirror to the arm at a relatively low speed qualifies as getting off easy in inter-Zlatan relations.
