Zlatan Ibrahimović revels in AC Milan’s first Serie A title in 11 years and dedicates the trophy to Mino Raiola


The title completed Ibrahimović’s triumphant return to AC Milan two years after joining his former club and 11 years after guiding the Rossoneri to their final Scudetto.

“It’s my greatest satisfaction. When I came back, in a press conference, I said that I would bring Milan back to the top,” he told DAZN after the game.

“A lot of people were laughing and now we are here, and we won the Scudetto. We made a lot of sacrifices, but nothing is impossible. I suffered a lot this year.”

Milan beat Sassuolo 3-0 on Sunday to clinch their first Serie A title since 2011. They entered the game with at least one point to finish above arch-rivals Internazionale and ultimately finished the season with 86 points – two points ahead of the Nerazzuri.

A brace from Olivier Giroud in the first half followed by a goal from Franck Kessie in the second sealed victory and the club title.

Ibrahimović dedicated the victory to his former agent Mino Raiola, who died aged 54 in April.

“I was close to [signing for] Napoli, then he told me that I was the only one who could save Milan. So I dedicate it to him,” Ibrahimović said.

At 40 and increasingly plagued by injuries, the future of the great Swede seems uncertain.

“I will make a decision in the next few days,” he said, according to Goal. “I’ve been through a very difficult time lately, it was bad both physically but also in other personal matters. In the end, I did everything I could to help Milan. to win this trophy.

“I was afraid that I would have to quit, but I want to do it my way.”

With the win, the Rossoneri became Italian champions for the 19th time in club history and tied Inter for the second most titles in league history, behind Juventus’ 36.

It marked a remarkable turnaround – led by Ibrahimović, coach Stefano Pioli and technical director Paolo Maldini – for a club in disarray just three years ago as poor performances on the pitch and financial troubles left the Rossoneri trailing their title rivals.

After enduring this turmoil, the final whistle sparked jubilant scenes of celebration from traveling Milan fans and players on the pitch at the Mapei Stadium, with Ibrahimović, as usual, the star of the show.
