Zlatan Ibrahimovic was injured in the match against Juventus and missed the last matches of the season with Milan. The issue turned out to be more serious than expected as he too retired from the Swedish team.
The 39-year-old had just returned to the national team and was preparing for the European Championships, which begin later this month. Unfortunately, he won’t make it and it remains to be seen how much he will play for Sweden next season.
His compatriot, Mattias Svanberg, shared his thoughts on the situation and what a pity that the ‘icon’ Ibrahimovic will not be there. The Bologna midfielder has also been associated with Milan in recent months.
“Zlatan is an icon for all of us, since he was a boy he has always given me tips and advice for my growth. Too bad for the injury: it would have been a dream to play the European Championships alongside him “, he told Corriere Dello Sport (via MilanNews).
On the positive side for the Rossoneri, Ibrahimovic will have all summer to recover and prepare for what will be an important season. He will aim for the Champions League trophy because he has never won it, even if it is not realistic.
