2020 has seen AC Milan make large strides forward in the league, with this improvement also being reflected in the individual statistics of many Rossoneri players. From Zlatan Ibrahimović to captain Alessio Romagnoli, let's delve deeper into some interesting facts and figures.
Ever since he first arrived at AC Milan in August 2010, Zlatan Ibrahimović has scored 60 goals for the Rossoneri in all competitions, more than any other Diavolo player during the same period. Out of all foreign nations, Sweden is the country that has contributed to the most AC Milan goals in the Club's history in Serie A: 385, 45 of which have been bagged by Ibra.
From Zlatan to Theo Hernández: before the Frenchman, the last AC Milan defender that managed to score five goals in a single Serie A season was Christian Panucci in 1995/96. Furthermore, Theo is the second youngest defender to have netted at least five goals in the Top Five European leagues this campaign.
Gigio Donnarumma has provided real assurance in between the sticks this season: no other goalkeeper has kept more clean sheets than the Rossoneri man up to this point in Serie A (nine). Captain Alessio Romagnoli, meanwhile, is one of two outfield players (together with Brescia's Stefano Sabelli) to have played every minute of the current campaign (2340 minutes).
One man has particularly stood out in 2020: Ante Rebić. All of the six goals he's bagged for AC Milan in the league have come since the turn of the year. Since the start of 2020, only Cristiano Ronaldo (eleven), Immobile (ten) and Ilicić (eight) have found the net more in Serie A.
