And the former Barcelona striker was not happy with the situation as he decided to take his anger out by kicking a bottle that was on the ground.

Milan boss Stefano Pioli commented about Ibrahimovic's behaviour, claiming it was normal for him to behave in a bizarre way because he could not help the team.

He said: "Apart from the fact that it is normal for him to get angry, he has not been angry about the change.

"He got angry because we could do better in some situations, we could play better and he can do more.

"At the end of the game he was very happy.

"He wants to help us until the end as we all want to do."

The Serie A showdown ended 2-2 after Franck Kessie leveled the scoring from the penalty spot.

Franck Kessie levelled matters for the Rossoneri to earn his side a draw and remain in contention to qualify for Europe next season.

Ibrahimovic's future at the San Siro remains in doubt as his deal is set to expire in the next three weeks when the season comes to an end.

When asked about his future at the club, the Swedish striker said: "I continue to play only if I can bring results, I'm not a mascot.

"Next year? Let's see. I still have three weeks of [my] contract.

"Nobody started talking about the future - on my part or from Milan,"
