Zlatan Ibrahimović has shared on social media just what he had to go through in the last months to be there for Milan and win the Scudetto.
Milan won the title this season for the first time since 2011 and the Scudetto celebrations went on for 48 hours straight, with hundreds of thousands of fans roaming the streets of Milano.
One of the protagonists of the celebrations, and of course also of the path that led Milan to the title is Ibra. Despite not playing too much this season due to injuries, the presence of Zlatan still made the difference and helped the squad win.
Yesterday the 40-year-old underwent knee surgery and he’s only expected to return to action in 2023. Today he went on social media to share how his last few months had gone.
“For the past six months, I played without an ACL in my left knee,” he wrote on Instagram. “Swollen knee for six months. I was only able to train with the team 10 times in the last six months. Took more than 20 injections in six months. Emptied the knee once a week for six months. Painkillers every day for six months. Barely slept for six months because of the pain. Never suffered so much on and off the pitch. I made something impossible to something possible.
“In my mind, I had only one objective, to make my teammates and coach champions of Italy because I made them a promise. Today I have a new ACL and another trophy.”
