Since his return to Milan, the Swede has not lost his good habits. A specialist in noticed media outings, the striker struck again.
Returning to AC Milan after two seasons at the Los Angeles Galaxy, Zlatan Ibrahimovic quickly responded to doubts about his ability to be decisive at 38. Author of 5 goals in 11 matches, the Swede still has some under the sole. And the latter takes the opportunity to let people know that he is one of the bosses of the rossonero wardrobe. It is enough to listen to his statements after the Lombard victory against Juventus (4-2) . But Ibra did not stop there.
La Gazzetta dello Sport publishing this morning extracts from a forthcoming interview granted by the Scandinavian to Sportweek. And once again, the striker dropped a few punchlines. “Ibra plays to win something or he stays at home. Ibra is not a Europa League player and AC Milan is not a Europa League club”, he said, before mentioning the man whose name is mentioned as the future coach of Milan, Ralf Rangnick. “Who is Rangnick?” I don’t know who Rangnick is.” he added
“I play for passion, I am playing for free. I was told that retiring at United States was too easy. So I came back to Milan.
“Afterwards, this covid stopped everything. So I thought: there is something that does not want me to stop. Fortunately, we have resumed,” he said, before talking about his future. And again, no tongue in cheek on the program.
“Ibra was born to play football and he is still the best. But we’ll see how I will be in two months. If the situation stays that way, it will be difficult to see me staying in Milan next season. I’m honest. I don’t know if there will be another club after Milan, I’m not closing any doors. But I will only go to a place where words matter. I still have too much passion for what I do”, says Ibra. The rest of the interview tomorrow in Sportweek.
