Zlatan Ibrahimovic to retire in France, says PSG president

Published Add your comment

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will play out the rest of his career at current French giants Paris St-Germain, according to the club's president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

The Sweedish international, 32, only signed for the club last year and further committed himself, after signing a new deal in September which in effect ties him down until 2016.

In the past, the infamous Sweede has stated he would be open to a move to play in the Premier League, in the future, however that now seems doubtful.

"He's said he wanted to retire at this club and it will be his last club," Al-Khelaifi told BBC World Service.

"I am not worried at all."

Ibrahimovic was the Ligue 1's top scorer last season, accumulating 30 goals in just 34 games, assisting PSG on their way to their first league triumph for 19 years.

Ibra's 30 goal season was the first in French Ligue 1 history since Jean-Pierre Papin reached the landmark back in 1990. He was also named the league's player of the year in the same season.

"I think he is one of the best three players in the world," added Al-Khelaifi.

"He deserves to be the best player in the world this year with the things he is doing."
