AC Milan talisman striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic may be 39 years old but has proven he is still ahead of the game when he scored a spectacular winner to secure victory over Udinese.
Ibrahimovic scored his seventh goal of the season and there were seven minutes left to lead the Rossoneri away to victory on Sunday.
A deep cross was not cleared by Udinese defender Sebastian De Maio and Ibrahimovic was the quickest to react to the loose ball when he scored a spectacular overhead kick to shoot the ball into the net and give Milan a priceless win.
He may never have been in the debate about the world’s best footballer, but very few players can boast spectacular goals like Zlatan Ibrahimović. And he still achieves it at the age of 39. Impressive. # Zlatanpic.twitter.com / QRoxWkcAIK

The 39-year-old killer was also heavily involved in the Milan opener when he met Franck Kessie in the 18th minute. But Udinese equalized early in the second half with a Rodrigu De Paul free kick.
But Zlatan was undisputed and produced his magical moment in the 83rd minute to seal the points and bring Milan to 16 points from six games, four points ahead of Atalanta, at the top of the Serie A table.
Ibrahimovic’s latest goal got fans out on social media hailing the Swedish striker’s end.
One fan tweeted: “Zlatan Ibrahimovic is like wine … he gets better with age,” while another offered, “Zlatan is in a league of its own.”
