“So you think that I’m done, that my career will soon be over? You don’t know me,” Zlatan Ibrahimovic said in a dramatic video posted on Instagram.
AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has precluded hanging up his boots after this season, demanding Saturday he is “simply heating up”. “So you believe that I’m done, that my profession will before long be finished? You don’t have any acquaintance with me,” the 38-year-old said in an emotional video posted on Instagram. “For my entire life I needed to battle. Nobody had faith in me, so I needed to have confidence in myself.
“A few people needed to break me, yet they just made me more grounded. Others needed to misuse me, they just made me more astute.
“In any case, presently you believe I’m finished? To every one of you, I just make them comment. Dislike you since I’m not you.
“I am Zlatan Ibrahimovic and I am simply heating up.”
Ibrahimovic rejoined Milan in January from Los Angeles Galaxy on a six-month contract worth 3.5 million euros ($3.9 million) with the choice for an extra season.
The Swede helped the previous Italian goliaths to their last Serie A title in 2011, and has had a major impact since his arrival with the club climbing from eleventh to 6th in the table.
The previous Manchester United, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain striker has scored seven objectives in 16 alliance games with two remaining to play.
Ibrahimovic’s declaration comes days after coach Stefano Pioli, with whom the Swede is on acceptable footing, marked another two-year bargain.
Pioli commended Ibrahimovic for the club’s arrival to shape as they stretched out their unbeaten race to ten games with a 1-1 draw against second-placed Atalanta on Friday.
“The commitment that Ibrahimovic has given to the development of the group is apparent,” said Pioli.
“I want to have the option to work with him again however there are numerous things that must be put on the table.
“There’s no uncertainty that he is still well can even now be a main impetus and can continue, however it relies upon a wide range of things.”
