Agent Mino Raiola said that Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic still has several years of playing left in him
According to Zlatan Ibrahimovic agent Mino Raiola, the Manchester United forward has another ‘five or six
years’ left in the game.
The 36-year-old, who injured his knee last season has re-signed with the
Old Trafford club after the end of his
initial one-year deal ended in the summer.
However, despite the knee injury Raiola believes that Ibrahimovic still
has plenty left in the tank, and even
joked that the Swede now needs to
repay him after all the hard work he
has put in.
Raiola speaking to Expressen he said: “he has so much in him. think minimum another
five or six years. I won’t let him stop,
he has to work for me now. I have
been working for him for several
years. Now it’s my turn. My children
are grown up and I need money.
“We have agreed that he is only
working for me for 5years now.
So we’re flipping it now. The salary
comes to me and he gets the
Ibrahimovic is recovering from a ligament injury in his knee, sustained during the Red Devils Europa League quarter final clash with Anderlecht last season. And Raiola is adamant he
will come back stronger than before –
reiterating that Dr Freddie Fu claimed
it was the best knee he had ever
When Raiola was asked about reports about
experts wanting to study the player’s Lee, he replied: “Yes, they want to. (Fu) says so. He says he has never seen such a
strong and pure knee after such a
long career as Zlatan has. Imagine
all the bangs.
Raiola believes Ibrahimovic will return stronger than ever
“This is a professor who takes care
of athletes from all over the world
and works with an American football
“He says he has never seen
anything like 40 years. It’s the best
knee he has ever seen.”
When the seemingly evergreen
hitman eventually retire, what next? Perhaps a coach?
“F**k… God help the ones who get
him as a coach! I want to see the
player who says Zlatan does not
know what he is talking about. If there is a meeting, I want a hidden
camera there!’ Raiola disagree.
