Zlatan Ibrahimovic may have recovered from COVID-19, but he understand the virus is no joke. Ibrahimovic released a video Thursday urging others to mask up and practice social distancing so they can avoid the virus.
He delivered that message in typical Ibrahimovic fashion, telling fans, “You are not Zlatan, do not challenge the virus.”
Ibrahimovic’s full message read:
“The virus has challenged me and I won. But you are not Zlatan, do not challenge the virus. Use your head. Respect the rules. Social distancing and masks, always. We will win.”
Zlatan Ibrahimovic tested positive for COVID-19 in September
Ibrahimovic originally announced he tested positive for COVID-19 in late September. At the time, Ibrahimovic said, “COVID had the courage to challenge me. Bad idea.”
AC Milan confirmed the news, and Ibrahimovic went into quarantine at his home. He’s tweeted and posted on Instagram since testing positive, but Thursday’s video was the first time Ibrahimovic spoke about the virus since September.
