Serie A: Ibrahimovic scores historic goal as Mourinho wins on milestone match

Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned from four months out injured by becoming Serie A’s oldest foreign goalscorer as AC Milan beat Lazio 2-0.

The giant Swede, 39, tapped in Milan’s second goal after Rafael Leao’s opener to make it three wins from as many matches for Stefano Pioli’s men.

Late on, Ibrahimovic forcefully rubbed Lucas Leiva’s head and Maurizio Sarri ran onto the pitch to remonstrate, earning the Lazio coach a red card.

At 39 years and 344 days old, Ibrahimovic surpassed Bruno Alves’ record as the oldest foreign player to net in Italy’s top flight.

The former Manchester United, Barcelona, Inter Milan and Juventus striker had been out since May because of a knee injury but has now scored in 24 different league seasons, dating back to the 1998-99 Swedish league.

“Ibrahimovic never gets old and he has great passion, a fire burning inside him,” said coach Pioli.

“He competes to win, he always trains to the maximum and he does so with pleasure. When you are like that you do not feel the years go by.”

Later on Sunday night, Roma boss Jose Mourinho’s 1,000 game in management ended in victory after an injury-time goal secured a 2-1 win against Sassuolo.

Stephan El Shaarawy scored in the 92nd minute to maintain his side’s 100% record this season and Roma are top of the table ahead of Milan and Napoli on goal difference.
