Rafael Leao gave the Rossoneri the lead after the half-term break. Ibrahimovic, who started for the first time since his return doubled their advantage with a left-footed strike.

The former LA Galaxy and Sweden striker had another goal ruled out for offside.

“I’ll celebrate like a God at San Siro. Not here.” Said Ibrahimovic.

“The important thing is that I feel good. I missed a few balls at the beginning of the game. But I need to play games to get back in shape.”

The 38-year-old signed a six-month deal at the Serie A side in December with the option of another season.

He scored 42 goals in 61 league games for the club between 2010 and 2012. His strike on Saturday was his 57th goal for Milan and 123rd in Serie A has also played for Inter Milan and Juventus.

“I feel good, the coach just wanted to think about my age and see if I needed a rest. But there’s no problem.”

“My brain is always the same and the body has to follow.” Added Ibrahimovic.

With the Italy international off his line, Cagliari’s Uruguayan midfielder, Nahitan Nandez hit a lob but Donnarumma raced back to clear.

“Ibra is an important point of reference. But it will still take time to perfect.” Said Pioli.

“He is not yet the real Ibra which we will see in a few games.”

“I’ve felt him charged since our first call. We are talking about a champion who still wants to be at the top.”

“His presence and personality are important for the group. He wants to prove that he is still up to the situation. Working in this way will certainly do everyone good.”

The win marked Ac Milan’s first win since early December. They move to within four points of sixth-placed Cagliari who occupy the league’s final Europa League spot.
