Zlatan Ibrahimovic could well have already played his last game for AC Milan as he is not expected to feature on Sunday night against Hellas Verona, a report claims.
This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via SempreMilan.it) writes that Ibrahimovic struggling with a muscle problem in his calf and will not recover for Sunday’s season finale at San Siro against Verona.
The Swede was aiming to return and take the field for a few minutes to say goodbye to the Rossoneri supporters given that against the Venetians will most likely be his last game for the club.
It has not been an easy year for Zlatam, who first had to recover from a knee injury that kept him out until February, then he returned and scored against Udinese.
However, two other muscle problems kept him out and are likely to stop him playing any further part this season. Publicly, the 41-year-old has never talked about retiring from football but he is receiving signs from his body that are hard to ignore.
If he were to retire, that Ibrahimovic has received an offer from Enzo Raiola to join their agency, while there is always the possibility that he could remain at Milan with a role between the squad and the management.
For now there are no certainties on his future, not even about the end of his career as a player, but the only certainty is that Sunday will be a special evening for Zlatan who will say goodbye to the fans.
