The Swede made his senior football debut in 1999 and has played in four different decades, but wants more
At 40, Zlatan Ibrahimovic remains a useful player for a Milan which leads the Italian championship with a few matches remaining. Even so, the Swede is aware that the end is near and such a feat is not easy to overcome.
“I’m close to the finish line, I’m a little scared. What would be the next chapter? There are many possibilities, I could do a lot of things, but the adrenaline I have now on the pitch, I don’t know if I’ll find it elsewhere. I’m trying to postpone. To continue playing, I have to be physically fit and have fun. There’s no point in playing if you’re in pain, better be realistic and say, ‘That’s enough.’ And then you start a new chapter,” he said, in an interview with ESPN.
Despite eight goals and three assists, Ibrahimovic admits he wanted even more from this season which is now ending.
“I’m frustrated because I would like to play every game. I love playing, the adrenaline I get when I get on the pitch is amazing. If I can’t play I try to help the team in another way, supporting my teammates on the pitch, I would like to do more and more,” he explained.
