Zlatan Ibrahimovic surprised the entire world of football by announcing his retirement at the San Siro after Milan’s last game, which beat Hellas Verona 3-1.
It was already known that the Swede would leave Milan and therefore his farewell was prepared, but hardly anyone, at least outside the club, knew that he was going to announce his retirement from professional football with immediate effect.
“I have had many memories in this stadium. The first time I arrived at Milan they made me happy, the second time they made me feel honored. I thank the coaching staff, the leaders and the fans with all my heart, for the opportunity they have given me. Thank you for always making me feel at home. I am a Milanista for life. The time has come to say goodbye to football, ”said Zlatan at his farewell to the club and which he himself turned into his farewell to a career full of successes that comes to an end at 41 years of age.
The Swede is a tough guy, but on this very special occasion he showed his more sensitive side and he couldn’t help but feel emotional and tearful when he saw thousands of people cheering him on.
