Tuttosport: Ibrahimovic fired up to face Liverpool with a Champions League record in sight

By Oliver Fisher -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic could make his first start for AC Milan this season in tomorrow’s game against Liverpool at Anfield.

As reported by Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Ibrahimovic will play in the Champions League with the Rossoneri nine years after he last did so, which was back in 2012 in the 3-1 defeat to Barcelona, and he will make his return at an iconic stadium in Anfield.

He had half an hour on the pitch against Lazio and scored a decisive goal, but above all it serves as fuel in his legs to get himself in the best possible condition to face Liverpool. If he were to score at Anfield, Zlatan would become the oldest scorer in the history of the Champions League, beating Francesco Totti.

The Rossoneri striker will be 40 in October and he will have six opportunities – providing he suffers no injuries – to reach such a landmark. He is ready for the battle against Liverpool, a team he knows well from his time at Manchester United, and the chance of sealing a record at Anfield stimulates the Swede.
