He’s come back to write another chapter in the history of the Rossoneri. There’s a great deal of curiosity, expectation and emotion about seeing Ibra back with AC Milan and in Serie A in general. Before seeing him back on the pitch, here are ten pieces of trivia linked to his time at the Diavolo and elsewhere.
1- Zlatan Ibrahimović rejoins the Rossoneri after two seasons with Milan, including one where he was a key figure in the Club’s last Scudetto win in the 2010/11 season.
2- The Swede is the player who has scored the most Rossoneri goals this decade (42), at least eleven more than any other player from this period.
3- Milan are the side who Zlatan scored his most goals in a single Serie A season for (28 in the 2011/12 campaign) and the team where he provided the most assists (11 in the 2010/11 season).
4- Only Gunnar Nordahl (35 goals in 1949/50) and 34 in 1950/51) has scored more goals than Ibrahimović (28 in 2011/12) in a single season for the Rossoneri.
5- In the 2010/11 and 2011/12 seasons, Ibrahimović played 85 times for Milan across all competitions, scoring more than twice as many goals (56) and providing more assists (21) than any other teammate in this period.
