Sweden and AC Milan superstar, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is widely considered as one of the greatest players in the history of the sport, with the striker continuing to perform at the highest level despite being 40-years-old.

Ibrahimovic continues to make a mockery of defences around the world and the striker was at it again during Milan's 3-0 win over Venezia in the Serie A on Sunday, scoring their opener - with his strike on the night meaning that he equalled the record held by Manchester United icon, Cristiano Ronaldo by scoring against 80 different clubs in Europe's top leagues.

Ronaldo for his part had scored against his 80th opponent in December last year, with his goal against Burnley making him the overall leader and now the Super Swede has equalled his mark, which is a staggering feat.

Zlatan who has netted eight goals in 17 appearances so far this season, has been brilliant for the Italian side ever since returning in January with 36 goals overall, with the striker recently confirming that he has no plans to retire anytime soon.

Milan's win on the night meant that they solidified their second spot in the Serie A table with 48 points from 21 games, one behind table toppers, Inter Milan - though their rivals have a game in hand and could extend their lead.
