The Swede was angered by the wasted chance, until he achieved equality with a header for the Serie A leader.
Milan continues as the leader of Serie A alone thanks to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but could not take more advantage because they drew 2 to 2. Surprisingly, they lost 2-0 at home against Hellas Verona, but discounted in the first half with a goal against (deflection in a defender) and in the second, in the third of six minutes of discount, the Swede nailed a saving header.
Like Zlatan, he hardly celebrated the goal but turned around and went to the middle of the pitch, embraced by teammates. In the week he came from a controversy, upset by a change in the defeat by the Europa League against Lille.
This time it was until the end and his was miraculous: before he had hit a head butt on a post. And in the play of the goal, the goalkeeper had covered a great turnaround, but then came the center and the header cornering for the 2-2.
Of course, the Swede was not so happy because he missed his fourth penalty (Cagliari, Inter, Sparta Prague and Hellas) of the last six he kicked.
And then he announced that the next one he was going to leave to his partner Frank Kessié. “A disaster … The next penalty is left to him,” explained the one in number 11.
With this tie, Milan leads with 17 points on seven dates, followed by the surprising Sassuolo with 15 and by Napoli and Roma with 14.
