Ibrahimovic will never forget the story regarding his agent, Mino Raiola. Raiola is a transfer boss with many tricks, is the only character able to instigate inside Ibrahimovic.
Last winter was the same. When Ibra’s contract with LA Galaxy expires, the Swedish striker weighs about the future. Should he renew his contract at age 38 and play third season in the MLS? Raiola shook his head.
“Mino told me: It’s too easy to retire in America, you have to go back and show people that you can still play in Europe. I asked: Who needs me the most? “.
Raiola announced that AC Milan is still interested in Ibra. They contacted a year ago to bring him back. But by then, Ibra decided to kick his second season in America. Raiola’s words are still the same as the meeting in Amsterdam.
Seven and a half years ago, AC Milan sold Ibrahimovic to PSG, a decision that their former vice president Adriano Galliani would later regret. That was when Milan lost 0-5 to Atalanta just before the Christmas break. They ranked 11th on the rankings and the start of Stefano Pioli.
The young football team, just entering nine, is waiting for a guide. When the main striker that Ibrahimovic was replaced by Krzysztof Piatek was no longer sharp in front of goal.
At that time, Ibrahimovic retired for 2 months. He was 38 years old and 2 years ago he had a broken ligament injury before thinking he had to end his career. The challenge is huge, both with his reputation and Milan, so the two sides only agree to a 6-month contract.
What if Ibra’s body did not adapt to the high intensity of Serie A, and he was no longer as sharp in front of goal as before? Ibra’s confidence was as if these questions never came to mind. I want to prove it on the pitch.
