A post shared by Zlatan Ibrahimovi (@iamzlatanibrahimovic)

In typical Ibrahimovic fashion, he told the world about his challenges in a dramatic Instagram post: For the past six months I played without an ACL in my left knee.

Swollen knee for six months. I was only able to train with the team 10 times in the last six months.

Took more than 20 injections in six months. Emptied the knee once a week for six months.

Painkillers every day for six months. Barely slept for six months because of the pain.

Never suffered so much on and off the pitch.

I made something impossible to something possible.

In my mind I had only one objective, to make my team-mates and coach champions of Italy because I made them a promise.

Today I have a new ACL and another trophy.

The veteran striker scored eight goals for AC Milan this season as they won the Scudetto for the first time in 11 years.
