Milan 1-1 Atalanta Atalanta hold Milan at San Siro

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has warned that he is ‘just warming up,’ as the AC Milan striker dropped a video on Twitter to suggest he’s nowhere closer to retirement from football. 

When he joined AC Milan from LA Galaxy in January at the age of 38, AC Milan was at fourteenth spot of Serie A. AC Milan secured 28 points from 20 matches with 8 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses.

After Zlatan joined AC Milan, Stefano Pioli’s side secured 32 points from 16 matches, with 9 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses. Meantime, Zlatan scored seven goals and provided four assists in 16 Serie-A appearances as AC Milan have climbed up to the sixth spot in the league.

It was not expected that he’d renew his contract with the Rossoneri this summer, amid new of his injuries. He was expected to leave this summer.

But he again comeback strongly post lockdown and proved his worth in Serie A against champion Juventus and many others.

Former Sweden International conveyed through a dramatic Twitter video on Saturday morning that he has no intention of retiring and his fans can expect him to play in the next season.

I still have three games, still 10 days, nobody said anything to me and I don’t expect anything else.

There are things that we cannot control, but that seems strange to me, but we are doing great things. We play with great confidence and we believe in what we do.

I’m working, I’m fine, the team is fine and doing good things.

When I arrived we are second or third in the standings, it means it is not bad.
