Ibrahimovic talks Liverpool clash and Milan renewal: “I hope to stay for life”

By Isak Möller -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been a very important player for AC Milan this season and on Tuesday, against Liverpool, he will be the key. At a live event this evening, the Swede spoke about various topics. 

The 40-year-old recently released his new book ‘Adrenaline’ and was present at Che tempo che fa this evening to promote the launch. Of course, the presenter took the opportunity to ask Ibrahimovic about many things (via MilanNews).

You played with Paolo Maldini and now you play with Daniel …

“Yes, this is nice. I played against Paolo and today I play with Daniel. Let’s see if the adrenaline continues, maybe I can also play with Daniel’s son (laughs).”

Your contract expires in June, right?

“I want to play as much as possible. We put pressure on Milan to renew and I hope to stay at Milan for life. I want to win another Scudetto.”

What needs to be done to keep fans from calling you ‘gypsy’?

“There is no difference when they scream about the colour of the skin or this thing. You have to do some useful things to change these attitudes and it doesn’t take much to kneel on the pitch.”

Milan, as said, will take on Liverpool this evening and Ibrahimovic shared his thoughts on the big game. The Rossoneri will certainly have to do their best and the striker knows what it will take from him and his teammates.

Tuesday you face Liverpool, shall we say something or are you superstitious?

“I don’t believe in superstition, I’m stronger than these things. This is an important match and we have to play it at our best and see how it goes. Today your Sampdoria (referring to Fazio who supports the Sampdoria) has lost and I bring you positivity.”

Hopefully, Ibrahimovic will get on the scoresheet and lead his side to victory. It would be a huge confidence boost but also a boost for the club, seeing as round of 16 qualification results in a lot of prize money from the Champions League.
