I was kindly invited by Anthony Lopopolo of The Footy Pie in Toronto, Canada to contribute a guest article. I chose an interesting recent interview that Zlatan Ibrahimovic gave to a Swedish journalist, Jennifer Wegerup.

MILAN, ITALY - SEPTEMBER 28:  Zlatan Ibrahimovic of AC Milan scores his goal from the penalty spot during the UEFA Champions League group H match between AC Milan and FC Viktoria Plzen at Giuseppe Meazza Stadium on September 28, 2011 in Milan, Italy.

Tottenham Hotspur on 28 September 2011 in Milan, Italy.
In a detailed interview from Stockholm with Jennifer Wegerup that was published by the Milan sport's daily, La Gazzetta dello Sport, Zlatan Ibrahimovic of AC Milan and the Swedish national team began with an intriguing and candid admission:
"Comincio a invecchiare. Non ho la stessa grinta che avevo prima. Mi divertivo ancora di più alcuni anni fa, rimanevo dopo l'allenamento per giocare, scherzare".

"I'm beginning to get old. I don't have the same fight in me that I had before. I enjoyed myself more years ago. I used to stay after training to play and joke around."
