CorSera: Ibrahimovic hoping to have a decisive role in season finale – decision over future on hold

By Oliver Fisher -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is hoping to have a pivotal role in AC Milan’s last two games of the season before tackling his future, according to a report.

As Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews) write, Stefano Pioli praised Ibrahimovic’s leadership in the post-match press conference after the win against Hellas Verona and revealed that he had given a speech to the team ahead of the game.

“At Milan you are remembered if you win titles and Champions Leagues, so if we want to be remembered there are three games left,” he said.

Ibrahimovic has now gone over four months without a goal and the last time he scored was against Venezia in January before a series of ailments and injuries severely limited his presence on the pitch.

For at least a month the Rossoneri had a serious problems with scoring goals and there is no doubting that being without Ibrahimovic (and also Ante Rebic) had a big part to play in this. Nonetheless, the Swede has scored 8 league goals this season in 988 minutes, which is an impressive return.

Zlatan has no idea what the future holds for him beyond the end of the season but he knows that the team are 180 minutes away from potentially winning the title, so he wants to put everything into that and to give all of his wisdom and experience.

We don’t know how much Ibrahimovic will play in the last two games of the season, but we do know that he will have a fundamental role in any case.
