When a player turns 30, more often than not, thinking about the next career step edges closer to the top of their priorities.
Entering the latter stages of a career on the field, some players have to think about their fitness levels and whether they can maintain their peak form.
For some players, it poses to be a hard task.
However, for others, that’s far from the case.
Step forward, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
- Ramsey scores his first goal for Juventus
- Man City scored five goals inside the first 17 minutes against Watford
- Lindelof proved Mourinho was right about his heading in the warm-up
At 37-years-old, the Swede still can’t seem to shake off his goal scoring habit.
So far this season, Ibrahimovic has found the net on 27 occasions as he sits second in the MLS top scorer standings behind Carlos Vela.
After scoring a hat-trick for LA Galaxy on Monday against Sporting Kansas City, he added to his tally this weekend in their 2-1 victory over Montreal Impact.
And Sunday’s strike proved to be quite a significant one in Ibrahimovic’s career.
That’s because it was the 300th time he had rustled the net for club and country since turning 30.
Quite an incredible achievement.
The Swede, who will celebrate his 38th birthday in just over a week’s time, began his 30’s at AC Milan, a club where he’d go on to net over 50 goals for.
156 goals in four years at PSG followed before he added another 29 to his tally during his time with Manchester United.
LA Galaxy was his next destination where he now awaits one more goal to take him to the big 50 tally.
And it’s safe to say, it won’t be long before he reaches that landmark.
As for putting on a Sweden shirt, he found the net 34 times ahead of his retirement in 2016.
Ibrahimovic also has silverware to show for his goal scoring form in the last eight years, clinching one Serie A title, four Ligue 1 titles, on top of winning the Europa League.
It’s unclear as to when the Swedish icon will hang up his boots but what is for certain is that he still has plenty more fuel left in the tank.News Now - Sport News
