Zlatan Ibrahimovic has no plans to retire just yet but won’t let ‘ego’ play a part

Milan, December 5: Milan star Zlatan Ibrahimovic has no plans to retire while he is feeling fit, insisting “ego” would not play a part in his decision. Ibrahimovic made a superb start to the season with Serie A leaders Milan, scoring 11 goals in 10 games, before suffering a hamstring injury last month. The veteran striker has impressed since returning to the Serie A club at the start of the year, although talk about his future continues after he turned 39 in October. But Ibrahimovic, who is contracted until the end of the season, said he wanted to continue while he could.

“As long as I will continue to feel good. Because when the years go by, we no longer talk about quality, but only about how you are physically,” he told Sky Sport. “If you are physically well you can do it, like [Francesco] Totti. But it applies to everyone. It is not a lack of quality, if one is in the right physical condition he can do it. “That’s the important thing, losing quality is impossible. It’s whether you can do it physically or not.”
