Watch: Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores record-breaking brace in Milan win

Zlatan Ibrahimovic became the first player to score 50 Serie A goals for both Inter and AC Milan as the striker bagged a brace in the latter’s 4-1 victory over Sampdoria on Wednesday night.

Despite approaching his 39th birthday, Ibrahimovic has made a huge difference since joining Milan on a short-term deal in January.

His nine goals and five assists have inspired a turnaround of fortunes under Stefano Piolo and prompted reports he could remain at the club next season.

After scoring twice against Sampdoria, he compared himself to Benjamin Button, adding: “People tell me I’m old and tired but I’m just getting warmed up.”

Ibrahimovic gave Milan the lead after just four minutes with a sharp header from close range to mark his 50th league goal for the Rossoneri over two spells.

He then bagged his second of the night in the 58th minute to make the score 3-0, marking his second double in three appearances.
