Yesterday, Zlatan Ibrahimović won the twelfth Golden Ball in Sweden as the best athlete in that country.
Ibrakadabra then stated in an interview that he would return to the national team if it did not represent too much pressure for the coach, but also for his teammates. Let us remind you that Ibrakadabra withdrew after the European Championship in 2016.
However, his form is unquestionable, the class is already there – Ibrahimović is experiencing his second or third youth in Milan. The Swede is the top scorer in Serie A with ten goals, Ibra played only six games in Calcio.
“Give me time, I’ll think about it. But it has to come from the coach (Anderson). Because if they think I’m going to be a distraction then I’m not interested. If they think I can improve something then I’ll think about it,” Ibra said after the ceremony.
Anderson, the coach of Sweden, soon stated that he will contact Ibrahimovic, but that there is still a lot of time for that since the national team will play the next game in March.
Let us remind you that Sweden did not manage in the League of Nations, in competition with the French, Portuguese, and Croats, they took the last place. However, they secured a place at EURO 2021 even earlier through the qualifications, they will play in Group E, where they will face Poland, Slovakia, and Spain.
Ibra would step into the fifth decade, but it is clear that he would be among the favorites for the best scorer of the championship if he continues with the previous games.
