Zlatan Ibrahimovic is flying in the Serie A at 39 and is proving to be ageing like fine wine indeed

Some players just age like fine wine on the football pitch. And rest assured, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is one of them. The mercurial 39-year-old Swedish striker just about showed all his younger teammates and the world, why he is still one of the best in the business.

With his double against Udinese, he is now top of the charts of the Serie A Golden Boot with 8 goals. This has also largely helped Milan sit at the top of the table now with 16 points after four wins in their first six games of the league season. Against Udinese in the weekend, he struck a beautiful bicycle kick and scored a goal in their 2-1 win on Sunday.

In addition to those 8 goals, he has also chipped in with 2 assists as well. That has seen him get involved in the team’s 10 goals over the last 7 appearances and in addition, has also made a mark in every Serie A appearance this season.

All this coming from a footballer who would normally have retired and taken up coaching or broadcasting duties somewhere as part of a relaxed life. But then again, Ibrahimovic is no normal footballer, is he?

Zlatan has had a stellar career, since first making his name with Malmö as a young 18-year old teenager. After that, he went onto have success with the likes of Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona and Paris Saint Germain. He had previously made over 75 appearances for AC Milan between 2010-2012, during which he lifted the Serie A and Supercoppa Italia.

And in what could be his final few golden years, he is showing all the young aspiring footballers of this generation that if you have the right fitness levels and mindset with determination, you can always last longer to go the distance. Because after all just like he says, “Lions don’t compare themselves with humans”.
