Zlatan Ibrahimovic celebrating a goal for AC Milan

Zlatan Ibrahimovic became the oldest scorer in Serie A history with his goal in AC Milan’s clash against Udinese on Saturday.

The Swede converted a penalty in first-half stoppage time to pull his side level after they fell behind early in the game. At 41 years and 166 days old, he has overtaken Alessandro Costacurta, who held the record from his days at Milan.

It was his first goal since returning from a serious knee injury.

But Udinese scored through Roberto Pereyra’s low shot, a goal from Beto in first half injury-time before Kingsley Ehizibue added a third on 70 minutes.

Ibrahimovic helped Milan win the Serie A title last season before needing surgery in the summer on an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

He only returned to action in February and made three substitute appearances before he started this match to become Milan’s oldest captain.

Milan missed the chance to jump to second and remained fourth with 48 points, a point clear of fifth-placed AS Roma, who play Lazio on Sunday. Udinese are eighth on 38 points.
