Ibrahimovic Promises ‘Violent’ Return from Knee Injury

Zlatan Ibrahimovic chomps to get back on the field after knee surgery. The Swedish striker is on the right track with his rehabilitation and he shared his thoughts with him Gazzetta dello sport.

“I’m fine and I’m training every day. You’ll notice when I come back. You can count on that. I’ll do it wildly. The key is to be patient at this point.”

Zvonimir Boban recently advised the 40-year-old to hang up his cleats.

“It depends. If I see someone stronger than me, I will quit. But I haven’t yet.”

The striker commented on Milan’s current squad.

“The group is stronger than last season. We have improved over the summer and we have more options on the bench now. Obviously I would love to be with the Rossoneri, otherwise I wouldn’t be here.”

The star has received high praise for newcomer Charles de Kettler.

“He is a great player, trust me. You just need to give him time to grow.”

Ibrahimovic is currently rehabilitating after undergoing knee surgery in May and is expected to return in January. The first part of the protocol was spent in a mansion on Lake Garda with a personal trainer. He will return to Milanello training center next week to train under the supervision of the club’s medical staff. The veteran played a few games with the partially shattered AFC Champions League last season. After that, he raised his expired contract, and agreed to drastically reduce his salary given that he would play at best half of the 2022/2023 season.
