Ibrahimovic ready to end ‘top-level’ football career in 2016
The Swedish centre-forward will make the move when his contract with the French team PSG expires
Swedish football star Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he expects to retire from his “top-level” career at the end of his contract with French team Paris Saint Germain, Britain’s Daily Mail reported Thursday.
“I have a contract until 2016. I will be 34 next season and I don’t see myself continuing to play at the top level after that,” Ibrahimovic told ESPNFC.com.
“I have achieved what I wanted in my career, 100 percent. I have won 23 titles.”
Speaking about PSG’s chance of success in the Champions League, Ibrahimovic said: “This team is made to play in good tournaments. You need to work hard and to have a bit of luck with you.
“In the key moments, you need to have the small details on your side. I think we have that in our team now. We have more experience too, especially after last season. So we can do it.”
The former AC Milan player has scored 78 times in 93 appearances for the French club.
