star

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

has claimed he has no plans to retire from football.

Zlatan will turn 41 in 2022, yet he managed to score two goals in Milan's recent 4-3 defeat to

Fiorentina

by the Rossoneri. His contract will expire at the end of the season and it is said that he intends to extend his contract for another year. Now the Rossoneri star has claimed that he is not thinking about retiring at the moment and intends to continue playing football.

“This morning I had pain everywhere but as long as I have objectives, as long as I have adrenaline, I keep going,”

the Swede told the Guardian.

“I know I’m coming to something good. I’m coming to somewhere I need to work to keep myself at the top.

“I will keep doing it as long as I can. I don’t want to have that regret if I stop and then, in a couple of years, I’m sitting with you and saying: ‘I could have continued because I was feeling good.’ It’s better to be totally finished and say: ‘I cannot do it any more.’ But I can still do it and I am doing it.

“It’s not about contracts or being famous. I don’t need that. The only thing that keeps me going is the adrenaline because every morning I have pain everywhere.

“But getting two more followers will not heal you. Getting more money will not heal you. Getting attention will not heal you. What will heal you is adrenaline.

“I don’t have problems suffering. For me, to suffer is like breakfast. But many people don’t understand suffering because the new generation, with all these platforms, have to do little to get credit.

“The generation before that you had to do a lot to get a little. I’m very proud I came from the old generation.”

Zlatan also played for AC Milan from 2010 to 2012, during which time he played 61 games for his team and scored 42 goals. His second season at San Siro has been marred by a number of injuries, but he has a good record.
