He may have passed 40 years and approaching 1000 career games, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has not yet accomplished everything. But there is no doubt that he would have preferred to avoid what happened on Saturday evening, on the lawn of Bologna. The Swedish giant thus scored the first self-defeating goal of his career. And yes, even the Z is no exception! A fact of the game which will remain anecdotal, however, since the Lombards won with a score of 4-2 and recovered first place in the standings.
And the former Parisian shone. It is he who launches Leao in depth for the opening of the Milanese score, before this unfortunate event. On a kick kicked from the left side of the Bolognese attack, the attacker deflected the ball with his head, deceiving his goalkeeper and sending the leather to the back of the Milan goal. What to put the opponent of AC Milan in good conditions, since Bologna will equalize thereafter (2-2), before a goal from Bennacer, then, the goal from Zlatan, this time in the right goal.
A nice shot rolled up from the entrance to the area, opposite post, to seal the rossonero success. 567 "normal" goals ... and an own goal, such is the record of the career of the player trained at Ajax. A match that is talked about in Italy, beyond this goal against his camp, since it is the best performance of the season for the former PSG, who has missed a lot of matches because of injuries. This was only his fourth appearance in the 2021/2022 financial year, and the first as a starter!
“He told me he was really tired, but I told him that the important thing is to win, to live the games with intensity. We are a responsible and mature group, which understands that some games need to be better managed, ”Stefano Pioli said after the meeting. No doubts, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is back, and he intends to lead the Milanese to the title in Serie A!
