Fans were quick to mock Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s social media post after AC Milan were beaten by Udinese in the Serie A.
On Saturday, Milan looked to remain in the pack in pursuit of leader Napoli. However, they produced a way below-par performance.
Former Premier League player Roberto Pereyra gave the hosts the lead inside 10 minutes before Ibrahimovic scored from 12 yards to level the score.
Beto scored deep into added time to give Udinese a 2-1 half time lead.
In the second half, as Milan chased an equaliser, they were hit by the ultimate sucker punch as Kingsley Ehizibue netted in the 70th minute to seal a 3-1 victory.
Two days after his team’s defeat, Ibrahimovic posted a picture of him celebrating his goal, with a caption that read: “Say my name.”
Fans were quick to mock the Swedish superstar.
One said: “U lost 3-1 , scored a penalty after the referee decide to re play it again, no shame.”
Another tweeted: “You posting on a loss now ?! Lol.”
A third fan added: “How was the result? I would prefer Milan to win.”
Someone else wrote: “You lost 3-1… fool.”
Whilst a fifth commented: “You lost the match. Have some shame.”

Although it was a bad day at the office for Milan, Ibrahimovic did reach yet another milestone.
As a result of his strike against Udinese, Ibrahimovic became the oldest scorer in the history of Serie A at 41 years and 166 days, with the previous record holder being Alessandro Costacurta(41 years, 25 days).
On Ibrahimovic, teammate Sandro Tonali said: “It is fundamental that he is at 100 per cent and fully involved in the team. He is still a talent, still has a lot of quality and can help us this evening.
“He deserves to wear the captain’s armband because he was out for such a long time, but we needed him and he needed us.”
After the international break, Milan will take on table-topping Napoli in a huge Serie A clash.
