Zlatan Ibrahimovic announces retirement: It’s time to say goodbye to football

After AC Milan played their last match this season, their striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic confirmed after the game that he is officially retiring. Considering his great career, the Swede, with Bosnian-Herzegovinian roots, will be remembered as one of the best strikers ever.

It all started in Malmö. After that, Ibrahimović sought happiness in Ajax, where it was already clear what kind of player he was. In his career, he changed many clubs; Juventus, Inter, Barcelona, Milan, PSG, Manchester United, and LA Galaxy are the clubs where Ibrahimovic played.

"So many memories and emotions inside this stadium. The first time I arrived you gave me happiness, the second time, you gave me love. It’s time to say goodbye to football."- Ibrahimovic said.

He did not forget to thank everyone who was with him.

The players, coach, and staff were always by his side. Of course, the fans gave him enormous support and without them, it would be difficult for Ibrahimovic to have such a career. "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." Ibrahimovic stressed that he will be a Milanista all his life. Although many hoped that the Swedish striker would continue to be Milan's mainstay next season, it seems that it was still time to say goodbye after a large number of injuries.

Ibrahimovic is going to a well-deserved retirement. "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”.
