The lion is no longer very young. But it still roars. And how it roars! Zlatan Ibrahimovic is still hungry and even the age of 39, he has no intention of stopping any time soon, as showcased in the derby.
Once again, the Swede has lifted Milan. When he joined in January, the team wasn’t functioning properly, with the lack of confidence keeping them down. Ibrahimovic brought them back to Europe and has created something beautiful.
As Gazzetta Dello Sport continues (via MilanNews.it), the striker was able to play at the highest level despite just recovering from COVID-19. But Ibrahimovic isn’t like anyone else, and he’s now the oldest player to have scored in a derby.
Furthermore, at 39 years and 14 days, he entered the top ten list of the oldest Serie A goalscorers. “I want to win”, he declared after the match. Because Ibrahimovic can’t satisfy his hunger with a few wins.
Ibrahimovic is the best investment made by the ‘young Milan’. His teammates love him and follow him. They pay no attention to the demands, on the contrary: they treasure it. The group also grows like this.
