AC Milan

Watch moment Ibrahimovic scores with laces undone after he stops tying shoes to make a run into goalmouth for AC Milan


AC MILAN striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic channelled his inner Usain Bolt after scoring on his return to first-team action.

The 39-year-old tapped home from close range in Sunday’s 2-0 win against Lazio just six minutes after replacing Rafael Leao at the San Siro.

It was the ex-Manchester United star’s first game of the season after recovering from a knee injury he picked up in May, which ruled him out of Euro 2020.

And he showed he hasn’t lost his hunger to score after finishing off a quick counter-attack in the 66th minute to double the Rossoneri’s lead over Lazio.

Such was the speed of Milan’s transition from defence to attack, Ibrahimovic had to stop tying his laces to provide an outlet for Ante Rebic.

The former Barcelona centre-forward could be seen down on one knee, before quickly getting up and sprinting to the box where he tapped home into an empty net.

Fans have compared Ibrahimovic’s goal to Bolt’s 100m sprint at the Beijing 2008 Olympics where he won the gold medal.

Bolt broke the world record with a time of 9.69 seconds, with cameras picking up his untied laces as he crossed the finish line.

Comparing the pair, Goal tweeted a picture of them, where they said: “Zlatan Ibrahimovic did a Usain Bolt and scored with his laces untied.”

One user then quipped: “Usain did the Zlatan.”

Milan then shared a video of the incident, as they commented: “Who needs shoelaces when you’ve got @Ibra_official.”

 

Reply to the post, one supported messaged: “My god what a legend.”

Another added: “Sharks smell blood from miles away. Zlatan’s killer smelt that goal from miles away so he left his boots lace loosened and took off!”

Following the win over Lazio, Ibrahimovic uploaded a picture of his knee post-surgery in June, next to him celebrating his strike at the weekend.
