Lucas Paqueta, Davide Calabria (x2), Rafael Leao, Samu Castillejo and Krzysztof Piatek (x2) also got on the scoresheet as Milan thrashed the sixth-tier Italian club 9-0.

Ibrahimovic was a free agent after leaving LA Galaxy in November and he said he received more offers now than when he was aged 20.

He has also insisted that he didn't come back to Italy to be a mascot after scoring 52 goals in 56 games in America.

"I know what I have to do. Zlatan is still here," he said at his official unveiling.

"I've been looking for one final rush of adrenaline to give it my all," he said as he marked his return to the Rossoneri.

"I received even more calls after the game against Atalanta [which Milan lost 5-0].

"I didn't come here to be a Rossoneri mascot. I've never lost my passion."
