At the age of 39, when his peak should be far behind him, Zlatan Ibrahimovic continues to work magic in Italy.

After another play and another pair in Milan's 3: 3 against Roma, the unbeaten Swedish star tops Serie A's top scorer table with six goals in three appearances, each of which he found the net twice.



Last night, Ibrahimovic set the record for doubles for footballers over the age of 38 in the senior leagues, when he reached five of them - all in 2020.

In total, his balance since returning to Milan stands at 16 goals and 5 assists in just 21 games.

The numbers illustrate how Zlatan only gets better over the years: to reach 57 conquests in the Milan uniform, he needed 82 appearances.

By comparison, to reach the same number of goals at Inter in the previous decade, he needed 88 games.

"It's never easy to score so many goals at the start of the season, especially not for a player his age," praised Milan coach Stefano Fioli at the end of last night's game.

"I have to admit that Zlatan surprises me with my physical readiness. His physical condition is just amazing, and that's thanks to the specific defense he's made this season. Even so, I think we should allow him to breathe from time to time and maybe let him rest a bit in some games."



"Eurosport Italy" crowned Zlatan the man of the match, and one commentator wrote: "I really do not care that Zlatan has never won the Champions League. He is one of the greatest strikers in the history of football, and it can not be argued."



Zlatan has a special challenge this season: Milan showcase one of the youngest rosters in the major leagues, and he functions on the irresponsible, but always inspiring adult standard.

"Zlatan is a special player. He combines a high level of professionalism and work ethic with a great personality from life. He is so successful at 39 because he does not play just to mark V. He wants to win, always. He is a champion, and a champion like him always motivates the rest of the team." , Fabio Capello analyzed.

"The young players of Milan see Ibra give it his all in training and think to themselves, 'If a star like him at such an age works so hard, surely we too must not get our foot off the gas.'

In Italy last night they mentioned the statement of former coach Alberto Zacaroni who said last week that "in Italy, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a more influential player than Cristiano Ronaldo".



"Zakaroni was right," the Gazzetta dello Sport wrote.

"It is difficult for Ronaldo to make a difference at Juventus, especially after winning championships has become a habit for her. Ibra may not yet have a title in his second term at AC Milan, but he has changed the club from one end to the other.



Only recently has Zlatan responded to Romulo Lukaku who described himself as "the new king of the city", saying "Milan has never had a king. It has a God".

If he continues at this pace, he may well reach the rank of god in boot country.
