Zlatan Ibrahimovic: I will retire when ‘someone better’ comes along



Zlatan Ibrahimovic has stated that he wishes to continue playing football until “someone better” comes along.

The veteran AC Milan attacker reportedly expressed “panic” over the thought of retiring from the sport.

“I want to play as long as I can,” Ibrahimovic told

“The reality is I’ll play until I see that someone is better than me, so I’m still playing. The future is yet to be written.”

The 40-year-old is seeking a contract extension with the Italian club for at least another season, since his current agreement expires this summer.

“I don’t plan,” he said about the future.

“Let’s see what happens. I don’t want to regret stopping football and then saying that I could continue to play football because then I’d regret it for the rest of my life, seeing that I could have continued.”

Ibrahimovic, Sweden’s all-time leading scorer, is currently on international duty, tasked with assisting his team in qualifying for the 2022 World Cup.
