Zlatan Ibrahimovic, formerly of Manchester United, sets yet another record in AC Milan’s shocking loss to Udinese in Serie A.
ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC scored the winning goal for AC Milan against Udinese last night, giving him yet another record to add to his already impressive resume.
Halftime saved the Swede’s blushes when the referee made him retake a penalty kick he had missed.
The legendary striker made no blunders this time, burying his first goal since returning from a lengthy absence.
At the age of 41 years and 166 days, Ibrahimovic became the oldest goalscorer in Serie A history, surpassing Alessandro Costacurta’s previous record of 41 years and 25 days.
While his goal was appreciated, Milan ultimately lost 3-1 despite his heroics.
After this loss, they dropped to fourth place and Udinese jumped to seventh.
Ibrahimovic made his return to action in February, and after coming off the bench three times, Milan’s coaching staff yesterday named him captain, making him the club’s oldest player to hold that position.
In January of 2022, he scored against Venezia to tie Cristiano Ronaldo for the all-time record.
Eighty teams from Europe’s top five leagues have been the target of one of his goals.
With the goal, he tied Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored against team number 80 in December of 2021 in a 3-1 victory over Burnley for Manchester United.
During his time with United, Ibra also established a new benchmark of excellence in the Champions League.
The legendary Swede made history by becoming the first player to ever play for seven different clubs in Europe’s top club competition.
Ibrahimovic began his career with United and has since played for PSG, Barcelona, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Juventus, Ajax, and Ajax.
