Zlatan Ibrahimović will tomorrow be at Stadio San Siro for the final time as a player of Milan, as he is ready to continue to the next chapter of his life.
There are not many players in the history of Milan like Zlatan: he first arrived in 2010, after previously playing for Juventus and Inter, and dragged the Rossoneri to their 18th Scudetto; he then left and returned in January 2020, lighting a fire in the group of Stefano Pioli which went on to win the Club’s 19th Scudetto in 21/22.
But all things come to an end, and the path of Milan and Ibra is ready to diverge once again. The 41-year-old, who has been struggling with injuries all season and has only featured in 4 games this season, will tomorrow (Sunday) have his final moments as a player of the Rossoneri.
There have been many reports in the last days about what the future of Ibra will be, and even in today’s pre-Hellas Verona press-conference Stefano Pioli said that it will be the Swede who will determine his own future at the club. However, a decision has been made and according to many different media outlets in Italy – Zlatan and Milan have agreed to not have Ibra’s contract renewed.
After the match against Verona tomorrow (21:00 CEST kickoff), the club will host a short special ceremony to bid farewell to the player, who in his first stint scored 56 goals in 85 matches for Milan and in his second stint – almost a decade later – scored 37 goals in 78 games.
It remains to be seen what Ibra will do next: he could either retire from football or move to another Serie A club, with Monza of Adriano Galliani and Silvio Berlusconi interested in the player.
