Berlusconi on Ibrahimovic’s future at Milan: “Invaluable as a coach or a director”

By Isak Möller -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has suffered yet another injury setback and this has sparked discussion about his future at AC Milan. The former club owner Silvio Berlusconi has now weighed in on the matter. 

The Swede returned from the international break with an injury and reports suggest that he will be out for around a month. After having finally overcome the knee issues, this is a huge blow for the 41-year-old.

Speaking to Gazzetta Dello Sport this morning, as cited by, the former Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi was asked about Ibrahimovic. He certainly isn’t worried about the future of the striker.

“He’s a great champion, he has a character and mental strength that is unrivaled. I know he still really wants to play, only he can decide until when. I think his personality is very important on the pitch and in the locker room.

“For the future, I’m sure that he will continue to play an important role in the world of football. He has the intelligence and the charisma needed to do well, no matter what he decides to do. His know-how will be invaluable as a coach or as a director,” he stated.

A role within the Milan management isn’t a far-fetched idea and has been proposed many times before. The question is if Ibrahimovic wants to continue living in Milan or if he wants to move back to Sweden. Since his kids play in the academy, this speaks in favour of the Rossoneri.
