ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC backed up claims he can continue playing until he is 50 with another outrageous goal for AC Milan.
The striker might be 39, but he showed there is no sign of his talents waning with a sensational header against Napoli.

Milan team-mate Theo Fernandez was the man who provided the assist, but his floated ball in from the left did not even seem like a goalscoring opportunity for the ex-Manchester United forward.
Ibrahimovic outpowered Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly and beat him in the air just inside the penalty box.
And he perfectly managed to direct the ball with phenomenal power for it to bounce into the far corner.
That was the veteran’s ninth goal of the campaign and one of a brace he got in the 3-1 away win to send Milan top.
And that statistic is even more impressive considering he missed four games after testing positive for coronavirus.
Ibrahimovic has scored goals for some of the biggest clubs on the planet after stints at Ajax, Inter, the Red Devils, Barcelona and now back at the Rossoneri.
Even though he suffered an ACL injury during his time at United in 2017, his agent believes the superstar can go on at the top level for another decade.
Mino Raiola said: “He will play football until they have to take him away on a stretcher.
“He can continue until he is 50 but only if he plays at high levels, he can continue.
“He has resurrected all of Milan, he is 90 per cent of that team.”
