Before the Milan derby took place, the San Siro sᴜddenly welcomed the arrival of Novak Djokovic, one of the superstars of the tennis industry.
The reigning world number one has repeatedly expressed his love for the king sport. The Serbian tennis player did not miss the once-in-a-lifetime competition in the Champions League semi-finals between the two Milan clubs.
Djokovic beamed with photos with living legend of AC Milan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Swedish striker could not play due to an injury when he entered the national team.
Rafael Leao, Milan’s main ɑttack, is also absent due to an injury suffered in the match against Lazio on May 6.
Leao pays respect to Samuel Eto’o, the former striker who won the treble with Inter Milan in the 2009/10 season. After retiring, “Black Panther” holds the position of President of the Cameroon Football Federation.
In addition to former players and top sports stars, the Milan derby also features leaders of two teams such as Milan CEO, Ivan Gazidis, Technical Director Paolo Maldini, Inter president Steven Zhang …
Former player Andrea Pirlo was also present in the San Siro stands. The 2006 World Cup winner played for both Inter and AC Milan.
AC Milan as the home team had an unsatisfactory performance against rivals in the same city. “Rossoneri” conceded two goals after only 11 minutes of rolling the ball and could not sᴜrprise Inter’s tight defense. In the stands, Zlatan expressed disappointment.
Djokovic seems to be a “fan” of AC Milan. He sat next to another legend of the red and black striped team, Andriy Shevchenko.
Leao also expressed sadness when Milan lost the match. This season, the San Siro stadium team failed in all 3 matches without the service of the Portuguese star.
