The 39-year-old had missed four games and not played for nearly a month after contracting COVID-19, but he put Stefano Pioli's men two goals up inside 16 minutes on Saturday.

"I stayed at home and have waited for him to pass to return with the team and work with the team".

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored twice in three minutes as in-form AC Milan beat rivals Inter to maintain their winning start to the Serie A season. With throes strikes, the 39-year-old took his goal tally to four goals in just two games.

AC Milan, who are now at the top of the Serie A 2020-21 table, are looking to tie down their star man Zlatan Ibrahimovic for a longer time than originally planned with the club and give him a new contract.

In a breathless first half, Romelu Lukaku pulled one back for inter in the 29th minute, the first Serie A goal Milan have conceded this season.

Milan won their opening four matches for the first time since the 1995-1996 season when they won the title under Fabio Capello. "I was stuck at home for two weeks, it wasn't easy, mentally it's tough especially with the high tempo we had beforehand".

Warner's last over blitz takes SRH into Super Over
SRH captain David Warner pushed the game into a Super Over as they ended their 20 overs on 163/6 in response to KKR's 163/5. The duo formed a 48-run partnership before Thangarasu Natarajan, in the sixth over, dismissed Tripathi.

But Gennaro Gattuso's side picked up where they left off before the coronavirus row, with a third win in as many league games they have played.

"That means we have to improve tactically and technically, because we can not always rely on character".

Belgium striker Lukaku replied after 29 minutes to give Inter hope of the kind of comeback they had enjoyed when the fixture last took place, but Ibrahimovic has been able to gloat after Milan held on to move five points ahead of Inter.

"We are ambitious, but largely invested for the future".

"If you want to challenge for the Scudetto, you need to raise the quality level of the squad".

"The club has been wise to lay the foundations and build upon them going forward".
