ZLATAN SCORES ON RETURN TO MILAN

Unlike Ronaldinho’s decision to move to Botafogo when he left AC Milan with the hopes of at least retiring in his homeland of Brazil, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has decided to tour the world and back at the age of 35.


The former Sweden international is making his first appearance after joining the former Italian giants and thanks to his prima donna effect, Milan defeated Cagliari 2-0 with Ibrahimovic netting the second goal with his weaker left foot thanks to an assist from Theo Hernandes.

The former Manchester United forward has now thanks to his shift on his first start, buoyed Milan into believing they can escape from the mediocrity of the Serie A midtable and instead challenge for a place in Europe at least the Europa League.

Before Ibra’s arrival they drew their last two home games and lost to Atalanta by a whooping 5-0. With the win against Cagliari, the Rossoneri now has at least a chance to get something out of this season before it runs out.

The last time Ibrahimović was at the club, they won the league championship. Sadly, that would be the last trophy they’ve lifted close to a decade. The former Sweden captain instead had a merry go round of his own from Barcelona to Paris Saint Germain all the way to Manchester United where he helped them clinch their first ever Europa League.

The friendship he developed with Paul Pogba also helped in boosting the confidence of the French star.

Ibra’s stint at the MLS Franchise wasn’t as successful as he had hope but that didn’t stop him from enjoying his time at LA one bit.

The veteran also claims in returning back to Milan he had more offers he could count and only returned out of pure love for the club.
