Ibrahimovic becomes oldest scorer in Serie A - Rediff Sports

Sport A- A A+
Ibrahimovic, who was starting his first game since January 2022, did not miss a second time, converting four minutes into first-half stoppage time, to become the oldest goalscorer in Serie A history at 41 years and 166 days.
Ednews reports that he surpassed the previous record set by Alessandro Costacurta in 2007 by 141 days. Costacurta also scored his last goal from the penalty spot for Milan in a defeat against Udinese.
However, Milan went into the break a goal behind as Beto made up for his error by scoring on the stroke of halftime.
Ibrahimovic was picked in Milan coach Stefano Pioli’s starting XI for the first time since January last year, and handed the captain’s armband.
He had previously made three substitute appearances this season after being sidelined since May last year, following reconstructive surgery on the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
