Thiago Silva has shared a brilliant story from his time with Zlatan Ibrahimovic at AC Milan.

The now-Paris Saint-Germain team-mates spent two years together at the Italian club between 2010 and 2012, a spell that included Serie A glory in 2011.

Talking to Sky Deutschland (via Goal), Silva recalled one amusing tale that involved well-known wind-up merchant Gennaro Gattuso and the charismatic Swedish striker:

One day, during a training session, Gattuso spent all morning teasing Zlatan. He was provoking him, and Zlatan took it without apparently saying anything.

In fact his revenge would come soon after. Rino [Gattuso] and Zlatan met again in the dressing room after training, and Ibra lifted the entire weight of his team-mate, flipped him over and threw him in the bin! 

It was crazy, we all started laughing thinking about Gattuso's face. I swear, I couldn't stop laughing for a week!

Well, now we know what happens if you mess with Zlatan—you get binned.
