Zlatan Ibrahimovic speaks on his probable retirement

The Sweden legend has no intentions to retire this year but concedes that perhaps the time will come.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has expressed his fear about retiring, stating that the thought makes him ‘panic.’ After a lengthy and fascinating career that began in 1999 with Swedish club Malmo, the 40-year-old keeps on rolling back the years at AC Milan, displaying no indication of slowing down just yet with eight goals in 18 Serie A appearances this season.

Ibrahimovic has featured in the Premier League, Ligue 1, LaLiga, Eredivisie, MLS, and the Italian top flight, winning a total of 30 trophies and 510 goals in his career. But the lively and tall striker isn’t satisfied yet, and he wants to play ‘for as long as possible,’ as long as his body can keep up with the modern game’s rigours.

Ibrahimovic has charmed fans with his dynamic displays, consistent goal-scoring performances, and entertaining on-field behaviour, which has occasionally bordered on the provocative.

Ibrahimovic believes that after such a high-intensity career, he will have a weird feeling when it comes to an end, and that fans will be sadder than he is, since they will never see the likes of him again. “I think the greatest sadness will be yours, as you won’t get to watch me play anymore. You should enjoy it now, because you’ll never see the likes of me again,” Zlatan said as reported by Goal.
