Zlatan Ibrahimovic reached a nice milestone on Monday. The 38-year-old striker led AC Milan with two goals past Bologna (2-0) and scored for the 22nd season in a row in a league.
Ibrahimovic, who turns 39 on October 3, scored the opening goal with a header in San Siro after more than half an hour. Then the Swede used a penalty early in the second half. In the final phase, Mitchell Dijks got his second yellow card at Bologna.
Ibrahimovic’s impressive series began in 1999 in the service of Malmö FF in his home country. In the years that followed, he also scored in every season on behalf of Ajax, Juventus, Internazionale, FC Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United, LA Galaxy and therefore Milan.
The all-time top scorer of the Swedish team is in his second period with Milan. He played there in the 2010/2011 and 2011/2012 seasons and returned to the fallen superpower at the beginning of this year.
The duel with Bologna, in which Jerdy Schouten was also in the starting line-up alongside Dijks, marked the start of the Serie A season for Ibrahimovic and Milan. The away game against Crotone is scheduled for the next round.
