He plans to play in the European Championship next year. “The selector called me and that’s something that makes me happy. I’ll do everything in my power to help the team, I’ll do my best. I’m going slowly, day by day, if I feel good and if the selector calls me, I’ll be there.”
He has a clear message for all those who feel that his time has passed. “I’m not in Milan or in the national team because of charity. I’m here to play, to help the team as much as I can. I hope I can continue with that and at the same time be healthy,” concluded Ibrahimović.
