CorSera: Ibrahimovic-led Milan send a clear and strong message with win against Napoli

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s golden spell under head coach Stefano Pioli continues to amaze as the Rossoneri were able to beat Napoli away in the league for the first time in over 10 years.

The last time Milan came away from the Stadio San Paolo with a win was back on 25 October 2010, and as il Corriere della Sera reports (via MilanNews) the win on Sunday sends a strong and clear message to everyone: there will be better equipped teams to win the Scudetto, but Milan are absolutely in the mix.

The Rossoneri strongly wanted to win and of course it was Zlatan Ibrahimovic who once again produced a match-winning display, netting a fantastic brace – his fourth already this season – to move onto 10 goals for the campaign.

During the break the Swede was able to rest and recharge his batteries, and the two weeks off have also benefited the rest of Pioli’s team who appeared much more lively after tired performances against Roma, Lille and Hellas Verona.

With the win Milan – in addition to remaining unbeaten in Serie A – also maintain their lead in the standings as they are back to two points ahead of Sassuolo.

There is some apprehension about the condition of Ibrahimovic, who was forced to leave the field towards the end of the second half, but the tests in the next few hours will say something more about Zlatan’s injury.
