Zlatan Ibrahimovic admits his future at Milan and even his playing career are in doubt. “We’ll see, I don’t know what I want yet. Something new seems to happen every day.”
The striker moved back to San Siro in January after his spell in MLS with the LA Galaxy and made an immediate impact, scoring four goals in 10 games between Serie A and the Coppa Italia.
His contract is due to expire in June and it’s widely reported the 38-year-old won’t extend it, as he was irritated by director Zvonimir Boban’s sacking.
“We’ll see, I don’t know what I want yet,” Ibra told Svenska Dagbladet. “Something new seems to happen every day. Italy is my second home and it was magical to play in a packed San Siro again. I had missed the sheer passion that Italians have for their football.”
Before the lockdown was ordered, he managed to fly out to Stockholm to be with his wife and family, who did not move to Milan with him.
“Who could’ve predicted this coronavirus pandemic? It’s sad that the tournaments have all closed down, but we have to respect the rules and be patient. Health is the most important thing.
“We’ve got to try and enjoy our lives. I have a family to take care of, they are happy here, so I am happy too.
“I want to continue to develop, but I am not just thinking about myself and my football, but everything around me: my family and my happiness. Football is my career, but there is so much more to my life.
“I want to learn something new, become a better person and pass all that on to people around me, not just on the pitch.”
