Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored in his first start since returning to Serie A as AC Milan won 2-0 at Cagliai on Saturday.
The big Swede came off the bench at midweek, but started in place of Krzyzstof Piatek at Sardegna Arena.

Ibrahimovic slotted a Theo Hernandez pass inside the far post to join Rafael Leao on the score sheet in the win.
It was the 38-year-old’s first Serie A goal since a May 6, 2012 brace in the Derby della Madonnina with Inter Milan. He’s scored 123 times in Italy’s top flight and 57 times overall in a Milan shirt.
He posted two shots, hit the post, and was credited with two interceptions. Ibrahimovic was involved in 22 duels, winning only nine.

Remarkable. 38-year Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores on his return to AC Milan. The cocksure Swede does what he has always done: back up his words, clinically and potently. One of greatest Self-Mythologizers ever to take the field 🙌 🇸🇪 pic.twitter.com/T5fTc3ZVTo
