Zlatan Ibrahimović is one of the main legends of Serie A at the beginning of the XXI century. The Swedish forward played successfully for Juventus, Inter, but most fans associate him with Milan. By the way, you can find any football result of these teams on the sports statistics website.
It’s worth noting that in Juventus and Inter Zlatan, although he was the main striker, was rarely among the top scorers of Serie A. However, in Milan his performance became much better. In the first season, he scored 14 goals and thereby helped Rosso Neri win the first Scudetto in 7 years. You can find the latest results of all football matches of this team on the proven platform.
Even more successful for Ibrahimović was the second season in Milan. Yes, the team missed the title and finished in second position losing to Juventus. However, the fact that the club finished so high is largely due to the Swede. On his account in the season 2011/12 were 28 accurate shots. This number allowed Ibrahimović to become the top scorer of the Italian championship. Previously, he was honoured with a similar title in the season 2008/09. However, that time the Swede had 25 goals on his account.
That season, Zlatan also won the individual award for the best player in Serie A. This best demonstrates how important he was to Milan and Italian football in general. Unfortunately, the club had financial problems and had to sell the Swede. Ibrahimović successfully played for several more years in France, England, the USA, after which he returned to the Rosso Neri team at almost 40 and even helped the team to break into the Champions League for the first time in 8 years.
What helped Ibrahimović have a successful season?
As for Zlatan’s most productive season in Serie A, he was at the peak of his form. Yes, he scored even more in France, but there the level of opponents was noticeably lower. Thanks to his goals, the table for Serie A looked good for Milan. But immediately after the departure of the Swedish striker, the club fell down and turned almost into one of the middling teams of the Italian championship.
Among the factors that helped Ibrahimović overtake the competition and show out the best season in Serie A, it is worth highlighting the following:
- well delivered hits, especially with the right foot;
- ability to play on the second floor (the forward scored a lot of goals after successful passes of colleagues);
- leadership qualities (he is always confident in himself);
- mutual understanding with partners like Robinho, Pato, Pirlo and other players.
As a result, the team finished in the second position of the Serie A table, and you can make sure of it on the sports statistics website. However, this result was the best for Milan in a decade, which once again underlines how important the Swedish forward is for the club.
