GdS: Milan to lean on Ibrahimovic again vs. Udinese – he wants to join Messi and Ronaldo

By Oliver Fisher -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic must rally his AC Milan team-mates and get ready for full focus on domestic competitions, a report claims.

This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) writes that there is obvious disappointment at the elimination from the Champions League but there is no time to regret, because tomorrow the team are back in action against Udinese as their title push resumes.

Ibrahimovic will lead the Rossoneri attack again given the many injuries that are denting the attacking department given that Giroud, Leao, Rebic and Pellegri are all out. The Swede is the only striker available and will be forced to go back out there again, after playing 90 minutes against Liverpool.

Ibra’s primary objective is obviously to win and keep Milan at the top of the table, but his next target individually is to become the third player to score at least 300 in the five major European leagues in the 2000s. So far only Cristiano Ronaldo (482 goals) and Messi (475) have done it.
