Zlatan Ibrahimovic declared his Milan mission accomplished as the Rossoneri were crowned Serie A champions for the first time in 11 years but the veteran has not ruled out playing for another season.
The 40-year-old Swedish striker embarked on the second spell of his career with AC Milan in December 2019 and said that was at the desire of his long-time agent Mino Raiola, who died in late April.
“It’s wonderful, I was here last time Milan won and 11 years later we win it and I’m here again,” Zlatan told Sky Italia. “I arrived here making a promise and I kept it. Many laughed when I said that we’d win the Scudetto again, but we worked hard and showed the team what it means to suffer for your results.“
“I dedicate this to Mino, he was one of those who wanted me at Milan and told me I was the only one who could save Milan. I dedicate this trophy to him,” he added.
When asked what would Raiola said to him if he was here now, Ibrahimovic sarcastically replied, “Let’s play another 10 years and steal more money”

AC Milan had won their last Scudetto way back in 2010-11 with Zlatan Ibrahimovic leading the line
AC Milan has completed its ascent back to the Serie A summit.
