AC Milan striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has come out to rubbish suggestions that he would be retiring soon.
He recently revealed that he intends to keep playing football until he is not physically able to carry on.
According to him, he would keep going until he cannot do the things he is currently doing with the ball, because his experience is still needed in the game.
He added that even if he is not running like he ran before because of his age, he runs intelligently now.
His words, “I’ll keep going until I can’t do these things I’m doing,”
“I just have to keep physically good and the rest will be solved by itself.
“I have a lot of experience, goals have never been an issue, I just keep going. I’m not the same player I was five years ago, I’m not the same player I was 10 years ago, we all change because of the development in your physical point of view,”
“I’m honest in saying that I’m not running like I ran before; I’m running more intelligent now. The Italian league, the reason I say that it’s the most difficult to play in for a striker is because it’s very technical and the philosophy of Italy is to not to concede a goal rather than score a goal.
“I feel like I’ve been here different generations. I played against [former Milan defender] Paolo Maldini and now I’m playing with his son, Daniel. Hopefully I can play with Daniel’s son also, that would be a miracle.”
On Milan, “We are in unbelievable form – we are doing great, we’re doing good,”
“But still we haven’t won anything, we have to keep that in mind.”
