Sweden’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic, captain of AC Milan, has returned to the Rossoneri squad after a nine-month absence to set a new record in the history of the Italian club.

Zlatan came on as a substitute in the match against Atalanta, which was held at the San Siro stadium in the 24th round of the competition of the 2022/23 season with Calcio.

Zlatan has been absent from AC Milan since May 2022, after the club announced that the Swedish player would be undergoing ACL surgery in his left knee and that his absence would last between seven and eight months.

With Ibrahimovic’s return to AC Milan, he became the biggest player to play with the Rossoneri in Italian league competition.

Zlatan, 41 years and 146 days old, is the oldest player to play with AC Milan in the Italian league since the adoption of the three-point system, according to the statistics network Opta.

Ibrahimovic has surpassed defensive legend Alessandro Costacurta, who was the oldest player to play for Milan, at just 41 years and 25 days old.

Milan celebrated the return of their captain with a tweet via their official Twitter account, where he posted a photo of Ibrahimovic entering the stadium with the phrase: “Welcome back king.”
