Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores on his first start on his first start for AC Milan after his return to the club in this transfer window.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has entered back in Europe and he has declared in the best possible way he knows. The former Swedish International scored on his first start for AC Milan ever since he returned to Italy.
On Saturday manager Stefano Pioli handed the 38-year-old his first start for Milan since 2012 and the former PSG striker repaid his manager’s faith by scoring the second goal of the game.
Ibrahimovic was lurking inside the 18-yard-box when he received an accurate pass from Theo Hernandez, the 38-year-old striker then smashed the ball inside leaving his compatriot Robin Olsen helpless against the power of the shot.
Watch the goal
After netting Milan’s second goal against Cagliari away from home, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has now scored a professional goal in 4 different decades.
Ibrahimovic decided to return back to Europe after he found himself ‘too good’ for the MLS. He opted to return back to AC Milan, where he started playing after facing a brief stint at Barcelona.
Ibrahimovic earlier served the Rossoneri for 2 years at the start of the last decade. Surely Ibrahimovic is an icon at the club as under his presence the club won Serie A in 2011 and were a decent side in the Champions League.
Going into the match against Cagliari, Milan were in serious need of a win. They started the day in 12th position and it’s been a poor season for them up to now.
They’ve already replaced former manager Marco Giampaolo, who lasted just a few months in the job after Gennaro Gattuso left at the end of last season.
AC Milan has been struggling to return at the top of Italian football since a while now, although Ibrahimovic can be a good addition to the team but he can never be the solution to the problems at the club.
