Zlatan Ibrahimović won an award today and he spoke about his return.
Ibrahimović won a Player Career Award in today’s Globe Soccer Awards in Dubai.
Zlatan is still recovering from the knee surgery he underwent at the end of last season, after lifting the Scudetto for the second time in his Milan career, and he is expected to return in early 2023.
“How am I? I have a lot of desire, can’t you see I’m well? I’m fine, I’m doing better. I’m working, and I hope I’ll get something back,” Zlatan told Sky Italia.
On this being an important evening: “It is important because I am here.”
On what he expects from Milan: “This league campaign is a bit different, I couldn’t be there in the first part of the season and I hope to be there in the second part. The team has grown a lot since I arrived. The team is doing well, Napoli is doing better and it shows in the standings. But the second part is more important than the first.”
On if he still believes in the Scudetto: “Why shouldn’t we believe in it? We always believe in it.”
On the Champions League encounter against Tottenham: “The Champions League is always difficult. It will be an open game, there are no favorites. You have to feel good when the times comes.”
On Maldini and Massara: “They are doing a great job, it’s also thanks to them that Milan have been successful. We are growing as a team and as a club; the club is in new hands and it’s not like before. We are all doing a great job, everyone has their responsibility and everyone is doing well.”
