Zlatan Ibrahimovic is well-known for his acrobatic strikes and volleys, powerful long-range shots, and excellent technique and ball control. He is regarded as one of the greatest strikers of all time and is one of the most decorated active footballers in the world, having won 34 trophies in his career. He has scored over 570 career goals, including more than 400 club goals, and has scored in each of the last four decades.
He currently plays for AC Millan after his departure from Manchester United FC to one American professional football club, LA Galaxy, from 2018 to 2019.
Since his return to AC Millan in the year 2020, Ibrahimovic has not played this season for his current club after undergoing knee surgery last year, but that did not stop him from enjoying a kickabout.
His return to training sessions has had an impact on the recent turnaround at AC Milan, according to Tuttosport.
Milan went through a crisis in the early part of 2023 as they went on a run of seven games without a win, but they are now on a three-game run of 1-0 victories which have restored some confidence even if the performances have not been vintage.
Tuttosport (via MilanNews) reports that the excellent work by Stefano Pioli and the tactical choices he has made is of course behind Milan’s mini-revival, but there is another thing that has been fundamental in getting out of the difficult moment, namely Zlatan’s return to the group.
The Swede’s presence in training sessions alone raised the pace of the work being done and while Ibra is still far from his best condition after so long out, he is still able to make an impact. Pioli has not been able to field him just yet, but that too could come in time.
