Ibrahimovic reaches 500 club goals!

Today on Sunday Feb 7, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has reached the mark of 500 goals in top level club competitions.  
This outstanding event happened on 30th minute of Italian Serie A match Milan – Crotone. The 39 years old Swede opened the score and then doubled it on 64th minute to make his tally as high as 501. Milan crushed the opposition 4:0 in the end.

“Ibra” is third striker amongst active players to manage this feat, alongside with, of course, Cristiano Ronaldo (661 top level club goals) and Lionel Messi (650). In the whole history of football, he is 15th prolific forward to score so much.
For getting 500 club goals, Ibrahimovic took 22 years of his fantastic career which included 7 different leagues, 9 clubs, 10 spells (two with Milan) and 825 matches. See detailed numbers in the table below.
