Zlatan Ibrahimovic bags brace in AC Milan's win

Veteran forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored twice to help AC Milan beat Bologna 2-0 and get their Serie A campaign off to a winning start yesterday morning (Singapore time).

The 38-year-old broke the deadlock with a towering header in the 35th minute and added the second with a penalty five minutes after the break.

"If I was 20 years old, I'd have scored another two," said Ibrahimovic, who has 14 goals in 22 matches since returning for a second stint at Milan in January.

"It doesn't matter if I am 38, I want to be treated like someone aged 20 and do the same work." - REUTERS
