A post shared by Zlatan Ibrahimović (@iamzlatanibrahimovic)

For the past six months I played without an ACL in my left knee. Swollen knee for six months. I was only able to train with the team 10 times in the last six months. Took more than 20 injections in six months. Emptied the knee once a week for six months. Painkillers every day for six months. Barely slept for six months because of the pain.
Never suffered so much on and off the pitch. I made something impossible to something possible.
In my mind I had only one objective, to make my teammates and coach champions of Italy because I made them a promise. Today I have a new ACL and another trophy.”

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who rejoined Milan in 2020 for his second spell, has been a pivotal figure behind Milan’s resurgence. With 33 goals in 60 games, the 40-year old former Juventus and Barcelona striker carried Milan for large chunks of the last couple of years. This season, though, his role in the club was a bit marginalized. But even so, his presence in the dressing room, and when on the pitch was a catalyst to inspire.

This is Ibrahimovic’s 34 title in a very illustrious career, with the Serie A title being his 7th in Italy. He has previously won the league for Juventus, Inter Milan, and one with AC Milan in his previous tenure. The 121-cap Swede has also won league titles in Spain with Barcelona, and in France with current Champions PSG.
