Zla­tan Ibrahi­movic On Career-Threat­en­ing Injury “They Said It Was Over. I Said NO.”

Zlatan Ibrahimovic On Career-Threatening Injury "They Said It Was Over. I Said NO."

He was ruled out for up to nine months with sig­nif­i­cant knee lig­a­ment dam­age after a nasty fall against Ander­lecht last year, but the ever-opti­mistic Zla­tan Ibrahi­movic was con­vinced he would come back stronger than ever. He was right.

The Swede would post inspi­ra­tional mes­sages on his Insta­gram while recov­er­ing, but many still doubt­ed whether he’d return to play foot­ball after such a hor­rif­ic injury. He was­n’t get­ting any younger but that does­n’t real­ly apply to this war­rior of a man. 

I will go through this like every­thing else and come back even stronger.” he said 15 months ago.

So far I played with one leg so it should­n’t be any prob­lem. One thing is for sure, I decide when it’s time to stop and noth­ing else. Giv­ing up is not an option. See you soon.”

It was a deci­sion that he and his club would not regret.

In 17 games, the 36-year-old has scored 15 goals in that time peri­od, includ­ing a hat-trick against Orlan­do City ear­li­er this week.

Days lat­er, the for­mer Barcelona and Man­ches­ter Unit­ed strik­er took to social media to show the extent of his knee injury that threat­ened his career and while many said it was over, he said “NO.”

It just shows that doc­tors at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Pitts­burgh School of Med­i­cine were right about his phys­i­cal con­di­tion. 

His knee is so strong that the doc­tors said they had nev­er seen any­thing like it,” Zla­tan’s agent, Mino Raio­la, told Swedish news­pa­per Expressen.

He has a knee that it is almost impos­si­ble for a foot­ball play­er with a 20-year career to have. It was quite clean, there was no harm in it.

Zla­tan is so strong that the doc­tor wants him back after his career to research on him. They work on the world’s best research insti­tu­tions for the knees and lig­a­ments. They research a lot on the sub­ject and that is why they are bet­ter than every­one else, and doc­tors want back Zla­tan to do research on him.

So after Zla­tan’s career, we will go back and open him up again to do research on his lig­a­ments.”

How long can he go on for? Ibra does­n’t look like he’s slow­ing down.
