Ibrahimovic Shows Up at the Milan Training Facilities

Zlatan Ibrahimovic paid a visit to Milan following the rough loss in the Derby and before the key Champions League clash with Newcastle United. The former Swedish striker, who hung his boots last summer, returned for the first time to his Milanello on Monday, Calciomercato relays.

The mercurial star greeted execs Geoffrey Moncada and Giorgio Furlani and talked with Stefano Pioli on the sidelines.

The rendezvous with Ibrahimovic might not be random. It occurs at a tricky juncture for Milan. Pioli dished to Sky.

“He’s one of us. It was a pleasure to coach him. The future? He came here as a friend, then I don’t know. He’s enjoying life and his family. I’m not sure he has decided what to do next. It’ll be a success no matter what.”

According to the publication, CEO Furlani is courting the Swede to convince him to join the front office. The higher-ups want him as a club manager. He would link up the squad and the brass.

Ibrahimovic didn’t reject the proposition last June. However, he decided to wait to rest after putting a bow on his career. The next few days could determine whether he changed his mind and if the hiring could indeed happen.

The ex-marksman was also rumored to be keen on collaborating with Enzo Raiola, the cousin of the late Mino, who parted ways with Rafaela Pimenta. He represents 33 players, including Ismael Bennacer, Gianluigi Donnarumma, and Mario Balotelli.
