AC Milan’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored on his return from a four-month injury layoff as they beat Lazio 2-0 at San Siro on Sunday to continue their perfect start to the Serie A season.
The 39-year-old, who had not featured since sustaining a knee injury against Juventus in May, tapped in Milan’s second after 67 minutes, seven minutes after he came off the bench.
It capped an impressive performance by Stefano Pioli’s side, who went in front through a Rafael Leao strike just ahead of the break, shortly before Franck Kessie’s penalty struck the bar.
The result put the Rossoneri top of the table with nine points, ahead of Napoli on goal difference, while Lazio are sixth with six points after three games.
