"Must... maintain... eye contact"

Zlatan Ibrahimovic helped Milan go four points clear in Serie A last Sunday in a 2-0 win over Lecce, but events on the field were overshadowed after the match when the Swede exchanged angry words with Sky Sports journalist Vera Spandini, resorting to the schoolgirl playground tactic of flicking his hairband at her.

The Rossoneri were quick to insist that the spat had been resolved, but with no official apology forthcoming from the hair accessory-launching striker, club vice prez Adriano Galliani has followed up with a gesture that perfectly embodies Ibra's unbridled egotism. Translated from

Galliani has made sure the Sky presenter will be delivered a bouquet of 19 roses: one for each of Ibrahimovic's Serie A goals.

Nothing says sorry like a married man having roses sent to another lady via his employer in a gesture that ensures she is aware of how awesome he is.
