Zlatan Ibrahimovic AC Milan 2021

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the 500th club goal of his long and illustrious career in AC Milan’s Serie A clash with Crotone on Sunday.

He quickly moved to 501 goals with his second of the game after the break, with another double fromAnte Rebic completing a thumping 4-0 victory.

Ibrahimovic is now into his 24th season as a professional, having played for nine different clubs since beginning his career with Malmo in 1999.

His double on Sunday werehis 82nd and 83rd goalsin a Milan shirt spread across two spells.

The only club side he has scored more goals for is Paris Saint-Germain, for whohe netted 156 times in 180 appearances.

Next on the list is the 66 goals he scored for Inter between 2006 and 2009. He was the first player to reach 50 goals for both Milan sides.

The 39-year-old’s career also includes 18 goals for first club Malmo, 48 for Ajax, 26 for Juventus, 22 for Barcelona, 29 for Manchester United and 53 for LA Galaxy.

Ibrahimovic is just the third player in the 21st century to reach 500 club career goals, after superstar duo Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

He remains some way behind their career totals, though, with both players having scored 661 club goals to date during their career.

The next player to reach the milestone is likely to be Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski, who is currently on 463goals.

In addition to his club goals, Ibrahimovic also scored 62 in 116 appearances for Sweden. That leaves him just 38 goals short of 600 goals for club and country.

Though he brought his international career to an end five years ago, Ibrahimovic shows no sign of hanging up his boots completely just yet, meaning he has every chance of reaching that milestone.
