Zlatan Ibrahimovic wants you to know that he is “back to win the premier league,” adding that the challenge to return from a serious injury was one that has fueled his desire to win more trophies at Old Trafford!
After convincing manager Jose Mourinho of his ability to return to full fitness, Ibrahimovic has returned on a one-year deal, and we SOS think the Swedish striker only has one thing on his mind.
“I said I have come back to finish what I started,” Ibrahimovic told reporters, adding, “Everything I built up in the first season—obviously we won the three trophies—the ending for me was not the ending I wanted, or nobody wanted, especially after how the season went. The target is the Premier League. That is my target to finish. Everything I started in the first season, we will finish in the second one.”
Former Paris Saint-Germain, AC Milan and Barcelona star continued on when he sustained the injury.
“In that moment when it happened, it was easier for me to say that I would come back because then I had a challenge,” added Ibrahimovic. “The challenge was that I never had a major injury, and all these people talking that ‘it’s over’ or ‘he’s too old’, all these doubts that I had in my whole career. When that happens, it triggers me because it gives me energy and an objective. I’m challenging what I am able to do, how far I can take my body. In the last years, when you’re thinking how many more years you are going to play, that is where you are hesitating. But the injury made it easy for me. I had one target, and that is to come back and play the game. I will walk out just as I came in, I will not walk out limping. I will walk out the way I want to walk out. Even if I have to walk on water, I will do that also.”
