Ibrahimovic's mere presence appears to have galvanized Milan, who last won the title in 2011

AC Milan could have won the Serie A title if Zlatan Ibrahimovic had been there for the whole season, the 38-year old said after helping them beat leader Juventus 4-2 Tuesday.

The Swede, who returned for a second stint at the club in January, was his usual outspoken self after converting a penalty which sparked Milan's comeback from 2-0 down.

He also hinted he would not extend his contract beyond the end of the season.

Ibrahimovic's mere presence appears to have galvanized Milan, who last won the title in 2011.

They have lost only twice since his arrival and climbed to fifth, having at one point dropped to 14th.

After being substituted Tuesday, he was seen yelling encouragement to his team mates from the touch-line.

Serie A is being played without spectators because of the coronavirus pandemic and Ibrahimovic regretted that there were no fans to witness Tuesday's win at San Siro.
