Zlatan Ibrahimovic is once again ready to come to the rescue of AC Milan during a difficult season, just as he did back in January 2020.
As Tuttosport (via MilanNews) writes this morning, Ibrahimovic is getting ready to answer Milan’s distress call but this time he will not do it as a player and instead with a new role that will be made official in the next few days.
The most recent meeting between the Swede and Gerry Cardinale – which took place a week ago – led the parties to find an agreement and now we are just waiting for the long-awaited white smoke.
The paper explains that Ibra’s return is imminent and there will be an official announcement in the next few days. The international break is considered the right time to made Zlatan’s return official, and he will not have a specific role in the hierarchies but will instead do a few things.
What will his tasks actually be? We spoke at length about the Swede’s duties in a recent feature. First and foremost, he will work closely with Stefano Pioli and the team and will often be at Milanello. Ibra will also have constant contact with AC Milan CEO Giorgio Furlani and with the technical area for discussions of various kinds.
