AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has revealed that he no longer speaks to Zlatan Ibrahimovic after the attacker left the club for Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.
The 68-year-old spoke of the big Swede's fury at being told that he had to leave Italy for the French capital and admitted that this caused a rift in their relationship.
"I'm no longer talking to him," he explained to Sky Sports Italia.
"It is his birthday today and I sent good wishes to PSG, because we’re no longer talking."
Galliani also asked the Milan fans to be patient with Massimiliano Allegri's side after a disappointing start to the campaign.
"We are a young side and have changed a great deal over the summer, so we ask for a little patience from the fans. We’re sure that this team will soon get back to its old glorious self."
The 68-year old also thanked club president Silvio Berlusconi for his words of support after he dismissed reports that Galliani would be sacked.
"I am very happy with the words of President Berlusconi, but I never had doubts. There was never the chance of certain changes."
