Zlatan in the legend. Holder this Sunday afternoon against Crotone at the forefront of the attack of AC Milan, the Swedish 39-year-old has shaken the nets twice, for the 500th and 501st times, on the occasion of his 825th club match . In an empty San Siro stadium, Covid-19 obliges, Ibrahimovic, ball at the foot in the opposing penalty area, requested the support of his teammate Leao, who gave him the ball. “Ibra” was quick to open his foot and score his 11th goal of the season in Serie A. In the 64th, he did it again, scoring his 12th goal of the season.
During his career, the goleador has donned nine different jerseys (Malmö, Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris-Saint-Germain, Manchester United, LA Galaxy). But it is with PSG that the striker has been most visible, scoring 156 goals in his four seasons with the club in the capital (from 2012 to 2016). He is also still the second highest scorer in the history of the club, only beaten by Edinson Cavani (200 goals).
With Milan, Zlatan’s counter now shows 82 goals scored in two passages (2010-2012, then since 2019). After PSG, the red and black club are enjoying the second most prolific period of Z.
We must add to this round number 62 goals in Swedish selection (116 selections). As impactful as ever, the Scandinavian, who recently compared himself to Benjamin Button, a fictional character who has been rejuvenating over the years, would see himself continuing the adventure at AC Milan. The figure of 500 goals is therefore likely to swell quickly. To the great pleasure of Milan fans… and all football fans.
