Zlatan Ibrahimovic Reminds Everyone: “Veni Vidi Vici”

Milan ace Zlatan Ibrahimovic has reminded everyone of the promise he gave upon his return to San Siro in January 2020. The veteran striker re-joined the Rossoneri amid the club’s downfall but has since helped bring the glory days back to San Siro. 

Milan were languishing in mid-table lethargy and fighting for the Europa League places at best before Ibrahimovic came to the rescue two years ago. After guiding Stefano Pioli’s side to their first Champions League qualification in eight years in his return campaign, the Swedish superstar has pushed the limits again. 

Despite being 40 years old, Ibrahimovic has rolled back the years, playing a significant role in Milan’s title bid earlier in the season. Though a series of injury setbacks kept the former Los Angeles Galaxy forward on the sidelines for most of the season, his sole presence in the dressing room has had an immense impact on the Scudetto

Let’s not forget that Ibrahimovic made a promise upon his reunion with Milan, saying that he is back to help a prominent club return where it belongs. Fast forward two years, Ibracadabra has shown he is a man of his word, delivering the long-awaited Scudetto to the Rossoneri fans on a silver platter. 

It’s wonderful, I was here last time Milan won and 11 years later we win it and I’m here again,” he said after the Rossoneri dismantled Sassuolo 3-0 to confirm the Serie A title. 

I arrived here making a promise and I kept it. Many laughed when I said that we’d win the Scudetto again, but we worked hard and showed the team what it means to suffer for your results,” Ibrahimovic concluded, as relayed by TUTTOmercatoWEB.

Ibrahimovic also dedicated Milan’s title to the deceased manager Mino Raiola with whom he had a close relationship. 

I dedicate this to Mino, he was one of those who wanted me at Milan and told me I was the only one who could save Milan. I dedicate this trophy to him.
