(CNN)Zlatan Ibrahimovic has compared himself to Benjamin Button after becoming the first man to score 50 league goals for both Milan clubs.

The 38-year-old star made the comparison to the fictional character, who ages in reverse, after scoring a brace in AC Milan's 4-1 win over Sampdoria on Wednesday.

"I'm like Benjamin Button, I've always been young, never old," Ibrahimovic told Milan TV.

The veteran striker, who has played for the likes of Manchester United, Barcelona and LA Galaxy, returned to AC Milan at the end of last year and has since scored nine league goals during his second stint at the club.

Before joining the Rossoneri, Ibrahimovic played three seasons for fierce rivals Inter Milan where he scored 57 goals.

Because they say I'm old but I'm just getting warmed up," added Ibrahimovic after Wednesday's victory.

"I've played in Italy for seven of eight years and, as a striker, I know you don't get many chances to score.

Ibrahimovic opened the scoring against Sampdoria with a trademark header in the opening four minutes before adding a second with a neat finish in the second half.
