At the age of 41, Zlatan Ibrahimovic announced his retirement from football. After a season marred by injuries, the Swedish superstar’s deal finishes at the end of June and won’t be renewed, forcing him to call it quits on a great and fruitful career.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who had helped Milan clinch the Scudetto in 2011 and the championship again the previous season, retired after representing them in the recently concluded 2022-23 season.

After being greeted by the San Siro crowd following Milan’s 3-1 victory over Hellas Verona in their season finale, he remarked, “I say goodbye to football but not to you.” As he struggled to hold back his tears, Zlatan Ibrahimovic continued, “So many memories and emotions inside this stadium.”

“The first time I arrived you gave me happiness, the second time, you gave me love. I want to thank my family and those close to me for their patience. I want to thank my second family. The players, the coach and his staff for the responsibility they gave me. I want to thank the directors for the opportunity they gave me.

“Last but not least, from my heart, I want to thank you, fans. You welcomed me with open arms and I will be a Milanista my entire life. It’s time to say goodbye to football, but not to you. It’s too difficult, there are too many emotions. I’ll see you around if you are lucky. Forza Milan and goodbye.”

The striker began his football career in 1999 with Malmo before moving on to Ajax in 2001. After that, he began a career that included stops at top European clubs including Juventus, Barcelona, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Inter Milan, and AC Milan. Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored 511 goals in his career and 12 league titles.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has scored 62 goals in 121 games for Sweden, left the team following the 2016 Euros but rejoined in 2021 for their disastrous World Cup qualifying season.

The former Manchester United star won every title that was obtainable during his tenure at each club, but he was unable to bring home the Champions League. The 41-year-old came close numerous times with Barcelona and PSG, but it escaped him each time.
