On completing his final, rousing sentence, Ibrahimovic flipped the table as the dressing room erupted in a sea of flying limbs and champagne.
Ever the wordsmith, Ibrahimovic had said: “Get everybody in here.
“Guys, stay calm. I’m not about to say goodbye.
“From day one when I arrived, very few believed in us but when we understood we needed to make sacrifices, suffer believe and work…
“When this happened, we became a group and when you’re a group, you can you can achieve the things we’ve achieved.
“Now we’re champions of Italy.
“First of all I want to thank the players.
“I’m now talking on behalf of the whole team – we also want to thank Paolo Maldini, Ricky Massara and Ivan Gazidis.”
Ibrahimovic continued his rousing speech, saying: “It hasn’t been easy but we’ve been a real group this season.
“At the beginning of the season, no one believed in us.
“But through these principles we became stronger.
“I’m very proud of you all.
“Now, do me a favour and celebrate like champions.
“Because it isn’t Milan that belongs to AC Milan… Italy belongs to AC Milan!”
On delivering his final, inspiring line, Ibrahimovic launched a table over and across the dressing room as the players erupted in celebration.
The whole squad – including coaching staff – bounced around wildly and sprayed champagne to toast their incredible success.
After the game, Ibrahimovic took aim at his – and his team’s critics – before paying an emotional tribute to his former agent Mino Raiola, who died in late-April at the age of 54.
Zlatan told DAZN: “It’s my greatest satisfaction. When I returned, at the press conference, I said that I would bring Milan back to the top.
“Many were laughing and now we are here, and we won the Scudetto.
“We made many sacrifices, but nothing is impossible. I have suffered a lot this year.
“I was close to [signing for] Napoli, then [Raiola] told me that I was the only one who could save Milan.
“So I dedicate it to him.”
