Ibrahimovic nets 500th club goal

Baku, February 8, AZERTAC

AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the 500th and 501st club goals of his career in a 4-0 Serie A win over Crotone on Sunday to continue his remarkable form at the age of 39, according to Reuters.

The Swede, who turns 40 in October, swept a shot into the top corner before tapping in a second after the break to reach a landmark that has been achieved in a career spanning more than 21 years and nine different clubs.

Ibrahimovic scored his first goal for Malmo in 1999 and he netted 18 times for the Swedish club before spells at Ajax (48 goals), Juventus (26), Inter Milan (66), Barcelona (22), AC Milan (56), Paris St Germain (156), Manchester United (29), LA Galaxy (53) and his second spell with Milan (27).

He has racked up 16 goals in 17 games in all competitions for the Italian club this season to spearhead their bid for a first league title in 10 years, with Milan currently two points clear in first place after 21 matches.

Ibrahimovic has won league titles in four different countries during his globe-trotting career and notched his 500th goal on his 825th club appearance.
