Zlatan Ibrahimovic made his comeback for Milan this evening, the first appearance since undergoing knee surgery in May 2022, and immediately made history.



The 41-year-old replaced Olivier Giroud to a standing ovation from the San Siro crowd during their Serie A match against Atalanta.

Just by setting foot on the pitch, the Sweden international entered the history books, becoming the oldest Milan player to feature in Serie A at 41 years and 146 days.

The previous record-holder was Alessandro ‘Billy’ Costacurta at the age of 41 years and 25 days.

Ibrahimovic’s last game in the Rossoneri jersey was the 3-0 victory away to Sassuolo on May 22, 2022, the day they won the Scudetto.

A few days later, after taking some time to relish the celebrations and often lead them for his teammates, he went under the knife to resolve a long-standing knee issue.

This is his 280th Serie A appearance, achieved with Juventus, Inter and Milan.
