Former Man Utd striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic breaks another record in AC Milan’s shock Serie A defeat by Udinese
ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC added another record to his impressive resume after scoring for AC Milan at Udinese last night.
Just before half-time, the Swede saved a penalty but didn’t blush when the referee ordered a retake.
This time the legendary striker made no mistake as he scored his first goal since returning from a long-term injury.
This made Ibrahimovic the oldest all-time goalscorer in Serie A history at the age of 41 years and 166 days, beating Alessandro Costacurta’s previous record of 41 years and 25 days.
Unfortunately, his equalizer was in vain as Milan suffered a 3-1 defeat.
The defeat kept them in fourth place while Udinese moved up to eighth place.
Ibrahimovic returned to the game in February and made three appearances before being skippered yesterday and becoming Milan’s oldest captain.
He equaled Cristiano Ronaldo’s record in January 2022 when he scored against Venezia.
It was the 80th side he has scored against in Europe’s top five leagues.
The feat meant he drew level with Ronaldo – who scored against his 80th other side in Man Utd’s 3-1 win over Burnley in December 2021.
Ibra also broke a Champions League record during his time at United.
The legendary Swede became the first and only player to represent seven different teams in Europe’s elite club competition.
During his career, Ibrahimovic has played for Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Juventus and Ajax, as well as United.
