Former MLS star and current AC Milan forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has tested positive for COVID-19, the Serie A club announced on Thursday.

"The club has informed the relevant authorities and the player has been promptly placed in quarantine at home," AC Milan said in a statement. "All other team members and staff have tested negative."

Ibrahimovic, 38, didn't leave it at that, however. The brash star took to Twitter to share his feelings with the world.

"I tested negative to COVID yesterday and positive today," Ibrahimovic wrote on Thursday. "No symptoms whatsoever. COVID had the courage to challenge me. Bad idea."

Ibrahimovic returned to Milan in December after leaving the Los Angeles Galaxy of the MLS.

The Swedish star recorded 52 goals and 17 assists in 56 matches in two seasons with the Galaxy. He was MLS Newcomer of the Year in 2018 and led the Galaxy to the Western Conference semifinals in 2019.

Ibrahimovic was a two-time MLS Best XI selection while helping raise the league's status.
