There was a bit of media chaos in Italy last night as the owner of AC Milan was reported to be disappointed with the Swedish footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the tabloid Aftonbladet reports.

Club owner Silvio Berlusconi was reported by several Italian news agencies to have said "Maybe I have wasted my money", as Zlatan was taken off the pitch for verbally abusing a linesman. The player had just returned from serving a two-match ban, but will now miss another three games.

But only minutes after Berlusconi's reported disappointment, a disclaimer was published on the club website.

The owner of the club - also the country's prime minister - had never said anything of the sorts, the statement claimed, and the media reports were "completely untrue and unfounded".

And Berlusconi himself appeared on a late night Tv-show to say that the club rightly had reprimanded Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but that "Ibra is a great player, soon he will shine again and lead Milan to new victories".
