Ibrahimovic: ‘Every day I wake up with pain but this Milan makes me feel young’

Many themes were touched upon by Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the long interview granted to the “Guardian”. Starting from the choice to continue playing: “Every day I feel pain, but this Milan makes me young. The thing that keeps me going is the adrenaline.”

“It’s not easy. Every day I wake up, I have pains everywhere”: it begins like this the long interview that Zlatan Ibrahimovic granted to the “Guardian”. At the English newspaper, the attacker tells himself without sparing himself, as in the field: “This morning I have had pain everywhere but as long as I have goals, as long as I have adrenaline, I keep going. I know I’m coming to something good. I will continue to do it as long as I can. I don’t want to have that regret if I stop and then, in a couple of years, I sit down and say, “I could have continued because I felt good.” It’s better to be completely finished and say, “I can’t take it anymore.” But I can still do it and I’m doing it. “Ibra then explains the motivation that pushes him to move forward:” It’s not about contracts or being famous. I don’t need them. The only thing that keeps me going is the adrenaline because every morning I have pains everywhere. But getting two more followers won’t heal you. Getting more money won’t heal you. Getting attention won’t heal you. What will heal you is the adrenaline. I have no problem with suffering. For me, suffering is like having breakfast. But many people don’t understand suffering because the new generation has little to do to achieve anything. I am very proud to belong to the older generation, which had to do a lot to achieve something. “

AC Milan as the secret of youth. It is Ibrahimovic himself who says it, then closing with a joke: “It’s amazing. They make me look young. Milan has this effect, like Benjamin Button. After six months here you will have dark hair, trust me. “ Then he becomes serious again and explains the success of the Rossoneri green line: “I am very proud because I see these young players take on more responsibility, change their mentality. This is my happiness now. This is my adrenaline. I go out and run as much as they do. I do it because when young people see me working they say: “After everything he has done he is still working. I have to do it too because he is doing it too”. This is how I try to lead by example. When I was here for the first time (2010-2012) we were superstars. Now it is a group full of talents, the youngest team in Europe, but we are at the top. So it’s a different project and it’s more satisfying because if you’re successful with superstars, that’s expected. This is not expected“.

Ibra and the Maldini dynasty

The Swede played against Paolo and is now on the team with Daniel, and does not shy away from the question about the Maldini dynasty: “Daniel on the pitch is still a good boy. Paolo, if he wanted to kill you in football, he would kill you. I’m glad they are not the same because it’s not easy for the son to be compared to his father, especially when the father has the career he had. We are. helping his son in every way. He is a great talent, but I tell him: “Play your game, fight, then you will lead the way on your own.” I am happy. I played against the father and today I play with the son. Maybe Daniel will have a child …

I’m not ashamed to say this because he did a stupid thing to my player. It was stupid but I’d do it anyway to make him understand: ‘You don’t. You don’t have the balls to do it against me. But I’ll show you what happens if you do it to me. ‘ That’s why I did it. It wasn’t a good thing for me, but I would still do it. It’s me. I’m not ashamed to say it. “A gesture that will cost him the first game of the World Cup playoffs:” It’s not about losing the playoffs. It’s about making it clear that you don’t make fun of someone lying on the ground. You don’t attack a dog. who does not speak Attacks whoever is able to do something. It’s too easy to blame my teammates who are 20 years old and very nice guys. I hope you understand now. “

The Swede also returns to the controversy between him and LeBron James: “Sport brings people together. Politics divides people. If we talk about racism, that’s another thing. It’s something I don’t agree with. But I don’t do politics. If I did, I would be president now. I don’t know LeBron James personally. I don’t judge him. Whatever he does against racists, he is right, because when 50,000 call you a fucking gypsy, it’s the same. This is also racism. But I don’t do politics. I do sport.
