Self proclaimed ‘god of football’, Zlatan Ibrahimovic broke down in tears on Monday, March 22 after being asked what his family thought of his return for Sweden.
The former Barcelona and Manchester United star retired from international duty in 2016 but decided to come out of international retirement to lead Sweden at this summer’s rescheduled Euro 2020 aged 39.
Ibrahimovic held a press conference on Monday March 22, following his return to Sweden.
According to the AC Milan star, his youngest son Vincent cried when he left him in Milan to come play for Sweden this week.
A teary Ibrahimovic said to journalists: “Vincent really cried when I left him. But now it’s okay.
“I have two little ones at home who kick the ball, my wife asks me to tell them to stop but I say no, we can buy new things if they break them.”
He then became emotional after being asked about his family’s reaction to his return. He also did not rule out featuring at next year’s World Cup, even at the age of 41.
He said: “I can dream, I can wish. It will depend on how I feel.
“My job is to prove that my age on the plane is not 41 years old. But it’s about the physical state.
“The head is sometimes faster than the legs can handle. But right now it’s just about feeling good and playing.”
