The vice-president of MLS communications – Dan Courtemanche – has responded to comments suggesting that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is returning to Milan.
The league’s commissioner Don Garber caused a stir on Thursday night when, in an interview with ESPN, he claimed that Ibrahimovic is ‘being recruited’ by the Rossoneri.
The 38-year-old played for Milan for two seasons from 2010 to 2012 and was a key figure in the side that last won a Scudetto.
Marca recently claimed that Zlatan is ‘likely to return for another spell with Milan’ as the club’s owners Elliott Management look to add some much-needed experience, and as such speculation has been running wild after Garber’s comments.
Now, Courtemanche has set out to clarify that the commissioner was not revealing that Ibrahimovic has signed for Milan via his Twitter account.
Despite many erroneous reports, MLS Commissioner Don Garber did not state that AC Milan was signing Zlatan Ibrahimović. The complete interview with ESPN can be found at the link below. https://t.co/go2hHH188B
