Sky: Ibrahimovic’s maximum contribution is 10 minutes per game as tough decision awaits

By Oliver Fisher -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is carefully managing his body in this crucial season finale, and is only doing one training session per week with the rest of the squad.

According to what Peppe Di Stefano told Sky Italia (via Francesco Nasato), Ibrahimovic does not train with the rest of his team-mates from Tuesday to Friday and instead he does an individual routine because of the swelling of his knee.

On Saturdays he does tactical work with the rest of the group, but this does not allow him to have the right level of fitness to run as much as his team-mates and to start games.

Ibra’s maximum contribution right now is 10 minutes and he is not willing to keep doing that. So either he retires at the end of the season, or he solves the knee problem if it is solvable, given that he is 41 years old and is out of contract in the summer.

  1. I’m a great fan of Zlatan! He is exactly my age and he is playing at the highest level.
    But…. For the sake of Milan, he must retire.
    Unfortunately he cannot contribute on the field no more.
    He has a lot to offer mentally and inspiring the team,so a different role in the club would be ideal in my opinion.
    Milan needs a 20 goal striker

    1. But why would he retire and not Giroud? Giroud is almost useless in play and he missed a lot of chances. I would rather have crippled Ibra than healthy Giroud at any time. Milan will get a striker, that doesn’t really depend on Ibra.

  2. I am a great fan of Oliver Giroud,and if it were not for his goals against inter and Napoli .We would not have been still in the scuddeto race ..I have always said ,and never doubted that we could win the league,and I still believe we will ..I admit that in the last couple of games Olivier has not done ,as well as he should have ,but still a couple of games to go ,and I expect Olivier to once again lead the line ..I never ever write this man off and I believe he will still be a valuable asset next season also .So come on AC Milan ..
