Since the retreat the retreat of the corona Milan Seems unstoppable and also last night (Wednesday) provided another show With a huge 1: 4 over Sampdoria And although it will no longer be able to qualify for fifth place after Roma’s win over Torino, Stefano Fioli’s team is in wonderful momentum ahead of the opening of the 2020/21 season and now a place in the top 4 does not sound like a bad word.
Perhaps to understand how special Milan’s run is, it’s worth digging into the numbers: since the big league innovations Milan have scored 32 goals and only Manchester City have found the net more times than it has during this period (34). Beyond that, the Rossoneri are counting 11 games without a loss, which is their best run since April 2013 and by the end of it was the sixth consecutive away game Milan have found the net twice – something that has not happened since 1964.
But with all due respect to the bunch in black and red and the coach who extended his contract until 2022, the credit for the performance at Luigi Ferrari Stadium should be given to only one person and he is of course Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who starred with a duo and cooking and just like his team is responsible for several more records.
The most impressive of them was after scoring his first goal and becoming the only player ever to score 50 goals in both AC Milan and city rivals Inter, while at the same time scoring his fastest goal in Milan after finding the net after three minutes and 22 seconds. At the same time he became the player to score eight goals in Italy in the lowest number of games (18) and rose to 40th place in the all-time scoring table in Serie A (131) after passing the legendary Francesco Graziani.
Another player who scored a milestone at the club is Turkish midfielder Kan Celhanolo who scored the second goal and cooked for the Swede the third and thus became the first player since Kaka in 2008 involved in goal or cooking in five consecutive games and the first since Filippo Inzaghi (also from 2008) in charge with 10 goals In five consecutive games.
Ibrahimovic Speaking after the victory and as usual he provided some particularly picturesque quotes: “People say about me that I am old and tired, but I am only warming up. “Like Benjamin Batten (a 2008 film about a man who was born physically, but gets younger with age), I will never grow old.”
Afterwards, Zlatan praised his coach Fioli, who compared to the Swede did promise to stay next season: “I am very happy for him because he is doing a great job. The team strongly believes in him and I also respect him very much. ”
