Zlatan Ibrahimovic back AC Milan to win Serie A title after derby heroics

Zlatan Ibrahimovic believes AC Milan can with the Serie A title after their derby win against Inter on Saturday.

The 39-year-old scored a brace in the 2-1 win and according to him, they can win the title despite having a long way to go.

“We are taking it one game at a time. When I arrived, the objective was qualifying for Europe and we did it. I do think the Scudetto is a possibility, because if you believe, then you can achieve anything. There's a long way to go, though,” Zlatan told Sky Italia after the game.

The player further feels that he has a lot of responsibilities in the team going by his age and felt angry going into the derby after testing positive for Covid.

Milan hadn't won the derby in four years, I was stuck at home for two weeks, so I was hungry and it showed.  I lost my sense of taste a little bit, but I had a swab every three days and nobody was going to stop me playing the derby.

“I'm disappointed that the penalty was saved, but the important thing is that the team won. I am the oldest in the squad, I feel a lot of responsibility and I like that feeling, as they all follow my lead and are hungry to win,” the striker added.

The Swede's first-half double ensured a Romelu Lukaku striker was a mere consolation as Milan secured their first city derby victory in the league in over four years.
