Zlatan Ibrahimovic is well and truly back as the former Sweden captain scored on his first full start for AC Milan since returning to the club. On January 11, 2020 (Saturday), Rossoneri defeated Cagliari 2-0 to move into the top half of the Serie A 2019-20 points table. The Milan club ended their winless run as Rafael Leao scored the opening goal of the game before Zlatan secured the three points after the hour mark. The Swede netted his first goal for AC Milan since coming back to the club and Twitter could not help but praise the genius of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Spurs Join Race to Sign Krzysztof Piatek From AC Milan.

AC Milan got their first victory since December 15, 2019 as they defeated Cagliari 2-0 in a Serie A encounter. Rafael Leao opened the scoring just 32 seconds into the second half when Castillejo played a brilliant pass over the home side’s defence and his deflected effort looped over Olsen into the back of the net. But the main headlines were made just past the hour mark as Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored his first goal for the Rossoneri’s since returning in January when he sidefooted Theo Hernandez’s pass into the far bottom corner. Speaking if the goal, it was a special one for the former Sweden international as he has now scored in four different decades, Zlatan scored his first goal on October 30, 1999. Ibrahimovic has now become the fifth oldest scorer in Serie A in AC Milan history, behind Alessandro Costacurta, Paulo Maldini, Fillipo Inzaghi and Nila Liedholm. Team Juventus Sweats it Out Ahead of the Game Against Roma in Serie A 2019-20 (See Pics and Video).

AC Milan and Stefano Pioli will consider this win as a stepping stone and will now look to build upon this to make a late push for the Champions League places. The Rossoneri’s are eighth on the Serie A table with 25 points, 10 behind AS Roma who occupy the fourth position.
