Stefano Pioli wants Milan to keep Ibrahimovic

AC Milan tactician Stefano Pioli again gave a signal to the club to fight to maintain the services of Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic next season.

Ibra himself is actually 38 years old, although Milan still believed in him and recruited him to the San Siro in January.

Even this decision proved successful, the former Barcelona player played a big part in the Rossoneri’s consistent performance throughout the second half of the 2019/20 season yesterday. As a result, the club managed to finish in 6th place in the final standings.

With this success, AC Milan also automatically gets a ticket to qualify for Europe next season.

No wonder the coach Stefano Pioli returned to praise the famous Swedish striker. This praise seems to be a sign that the Milan management will continue to try to maintain the former PSG’s service next season.

“Zlatan is a great professional. He taught the younger players. He is a point of reference for his teammates and has great respect for his role. The secret is his desire to win and always improve, “said Pioli to Skrill, via Italian Football.

As for strengthening AC Milan in his second period, Zlatan Ibrahimovic appeared 20 times in all competitions and scored 11 goals, 10 of which came in the Italian Serie A.

Not only Ibrahimovic, Stefano Pioli also praised two other players, Alessio Romagnoli and Gianluigi Donnarumma. According to him, the two figures were very strong in guarding the club’s defense.

He also hopes that AC Milan can defend Donnarumma next season. For information, currently the goalkeeper’s contract has only one year left at the san Siro.

“Donnarumma is extraordinarily talented and wears the Romagnoli armband with a great personality. He is one of the strongest goalkeepers in the world and still has enough room to develop, “continued Pioli.

Ibrahimovic himself has not confirmed anything regarding his future. What is clear, the player had the opinion that AC Milan is now different from AC Milan in his first period.
