Speaking to the media after the game, Ibrahimovic claimed that he is ageing in reverse like Benjamin Button. He also revealed that he is only getting warmed up.

He said: “I’m like Benjamin Button, I’ve always been young, never old. Hopefully, I can keep on going like this with the strength to score, because at the end of the game I get tired, right? Because they say I’m old but I’m just getting warmed up.”

“I’ve played in Italy for seven of eight years and, as a striker, I know you don’t get many chances to score. So when you do, you have to make the most of them and score.”

There is no doubt that he is still a quality player who has a lot to offer. Milan should look to extend his deal beyond this summer.
