Ibrahimovic: 'I'm starting to age'

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has admitted on his 30th birthday that time is passing quickly for him, but that he believes he has a few years left yet.

The Swede was talking to Sportbladet and reflected on entering his 30s as a footballer.

"I'm starting to age, the time has passed quickly, but I definitely plan on playing for a few more years.

"Now, I feel more mature because I have two children. Time has passed quickly, I moved between several teams and that made things go quickly.

"Once I stop playing I will begin to enjoy life. When will I retire? I do not know, but I want to go on for a while."

Ibra then passed comment on the Juventus defeat.

"I do not think we had the potential to do more in that game. I will celebrate [his birthday] with my family, and then focus on my commitments with the national team."
