Speculation persists regarding the potential return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic to AC Milan in a yet-to-be-determined capacity. In an interview with Class CNBC, Gerry Cardinale discussed the prospect of Ibrahimović rejoining Milan after retiring from football in June, emphasizing Zlatan’s legendary status and leadership qualities. Cardinale suggested that having someone like Ibrahimovic as an advisor and a guiding presence for their young team would be beneficial. While discussions are ongoing, his specific role in a potential third stint with the Rossoneri remains uncertain
One concept being considered is appointing him as the club manager, a role involving close interaction with the team and management. Milan’s owner envisions an even more extensive integration of Ibrahimovic into the club’s environment. Possible collaborations with Giorgio Furlani, Geoffrey Moncada, and Antonio D’Ottavio have been mentioned, but it remains to be seen whether Zlatan would be willing to commit to a specific role. In the meantime, Ibrahimovic continues his media appearances and leisure time, with updates potentially emerging in early 2024.
