Ibrahimovic: Football dies without me

Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic rejected a question about his retirement, telling a fan that “football dies without me”.

The Swedish star is approaching his 41st birthday and, despite facing several months on the sidelines after undergoing major knee surgery, recently extended his contract with Milan.

Ibra has grappled for the better part of the last decade with the question of when he will retire and has never given any indication that it is close.

And asked by a fan during an Instagram live when he planned to retire, he said: “Never. If I retire, football dies!”.

The tall striker is continuing his rehabilitation as he looks to return to the pitch as soon as possible and fight for his sixth Serie A title.

Despite not featuring in a large number of games last season, the striker was praised for his contribution to helping a young Milan side hold their nerve and win their first Scudetto in 11 seasons – with Ibrahimovic a player in both teams.
