Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed what every football club he had played for did to his life, as he prepares to quit the game.

“I was born in Malmö. Grew up in Amsterdam. Turned wiser in Turin. I became a lion in Barcelona. Was raised in Milan and got new perspectives in Paris. Gained stamina in Manchester and had some fun in Los Angeles. And then finally found peace in my new homeland in Milan”, he wrote in a final message ahead of his retirement from professional football.

After a career that lasted 24 years, Ibrahimovic announced his retirement on the back of AC Milan’s final Serie A match of the 22/23 season against Hellas Verona.

On his official Instagram page, he wrote: “It started with a dream. A dream that turned impossible into I’m possible.

“I am made by you. And the legacy I hope to leave behind is all the new Zlatans made by me. All of those who have the heart of a lion. All of those who have the burning fire in their eyes. All of those who truly understand that impossible is nothing.”

Ibrahimovic continued: “Thanks for everything. Mino, we made it! The ride is over. It’s been an amazing journey. I miss you.”

During Milan’s last match, Ibrahimovic broke down in tears after being serenaded by the crowd.

As per GOAL, he said: “The first time we arrived in Milan, you gave me happiness, the second time, you gave me love. From my heart, I want to thank you fans.

“You welcomed me with open arms, you made me feel at home. I will be a Milan fan for the whole It’s time to say goodbye to football, not you.”
