The Swedish legend has claimed he could play for many more years.
We sure wouldn’t mind.
As links to Serie A persist, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has no plans for retirement, saying he could play for another 12 years. In a recent interview, he has claimed he could play until the age of 50 if he found the right club.
The 38-year-old is waiting to make a decision on his next move as his LA Galaxy contract expires after two years in MLS. Ibrahimovic had previously played in Sweden, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, France and England, with Inter Milan, AC Milan, Juventus, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United among his former teams.
Despite his advancing years, the outspoken forward insists he is not planning to wind down any time soon.
“If there is a project that stimulates me, I could play at this level until I’m 50 years old,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport. In typically bold fashion, Ibrahimovic also compared himself to Giuseppe Garibaldi, ‘the Hero of the Two Worlds’, an 1800s general who sailed to South America and adopted new cultures.
