The Swedish star has had a significant impact on Milan's performance over the past year.
Milan coach Stefano Pioli praised Zlatan Ibrahimovic, calling him "a godsend" who helped his team improve last year.
The Swedish striker started his second spell inMilan
a year ago and made his debut for the team against Sampdoria on January 6. Zlatan has since scored a total of 20 goals in 24 games in 2020, with only Ciro Immobile (34 goals in 33 games) and Ronaldo (38 goals in 29 games) outperforming him. He has also scored ten goals in 6 games this season and is currently out due to injury.
And he is the oldest player who has managed to score ten goals in the first eight games of Serie A, and now Pioli has praised him.
"When he arrived, we knew it was a delicate moment, it was a godsend, it gave a shock and energy that the team did not have at that moment," Pioli told reporers.
"The January transfer market has given us a hand in the past. But let's think about the match against Benevento."
Pioli added on Zlatan's injury: "He can't wait to get back, but we need caution," he said. "I hope he can come back as soon as possible."
