Opta: Ibrahimovic would obtain European record for Milan with goal against Red Star

By Oliver Fisher -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic could break yet another Milan record on Thursday night if he scores against Red Star, according to a report.

MilanLive write how  Ibrahimovic – with a goal against the Serbian side or at any future stage in the Europa League – could become the oldest goal scorer in European competitions in the Rossoneri’s history when excluding qualifying stages.

Currently the record is held by Filippo Inzaghi who bagged against Real Madrid at 37 years and 86 days in the 2010-11 Champions League group stage.

Ibra, if he were to net tomorrow, would score a goal at 39 years and 118 days, as written this morning by Opta. However, for Zlatan the record for the oldest scorer ever for Milan is a long way off as he is behind two defenders.

Paolo Maldini scored a goal at 39 years and 278 days against Atalanta on 30 March 2008, while Alessandro Costacurta netted his last goal at the ripe old age of 41 years and 25 days.
