The 38-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimovic has claimed that had he joined AC Milan at the start of the season, the club would have won the Serie A in grand style.
AC Milan vs Juventus ended 4-2 in favour of the home side as Milan came from a two-goal deficit to win the match in emphatic style.
The first half was entertaining, but chances were few and far between to separate both sides at the San Siro.
Adrien Rabiot opened the scoring in the first half before Ronaldo made it 2-0 for the league leaders.
Ibrahimovic pulled one back from the spot after Bonucci was brought down in the area. Franck Kessie, Rafael Leao and Ante Rebic all found the back of the net in the second-half to ensure AC Milan claim the maximum points as it ended 4-2.
Ibrahimovic who returned to the club as a free agent in January told DAZN after the game: “If I was here from the beginning of the season, we would have won the Scudetto!”
“There is still a month, so let’s see,” Ibrahimovic said amid growing speculation head coach Stefano Pioli will be replaced by Ralf Rangnick. “There are things that we cannot control.”
“Playing without fans is a pity, a strange situation. We do our job, we are professionals. It could have been the last time they have seen me live in San Siro.”
