The 38-year-old, who returned to the Rossoneri in January, was in high spirits after the match and boldly claimed that the club would have won the Serie A title this season if he had joined at the start of the campaign. 

"If I was here from the beginning of the season, we would have won the Scudetto," Ibrahimovic said, per ESPN.

"I am president, coach and player, but they only pay me as a footballer."
