Ibrahimovic would consider ending career at Celtic

Published Add your comment

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has hinted that he would consider ending his career with Scottish Premier League giants Celtic, reports the London Metro.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward has long been considered one of the best players of the modern game, after spells with big clubs such as Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona and AC Milan.

It would appear, though, that the 32-year-old would like to add another side to his extensive list of former clubs.

He told reporters: "Celtic is a club with a big tradition and a place any top player would want to end their career."

He added: "How could I say I wouldn’t want to play for those fans every week?"

If he joined Neil Lennon's Hoops side, he would be following in the footsteps of Celtic legend and fellow Swede Henrik Larsson, who - like Ibrahimovic - also enjoyed a spell at Camp Nou, playing for Barcelona.

On his compatriot, the Swedish superstar said: "Henrik was good enough to play for any team in Europe. But after playing at Celtic Park it is easy to understand why he chose to stay there for so long."

Celtic fans shouldn't get there hopes up too soon though - the influential forward has only recently signed a bumper new five-year deal with his current club PSG to extend his stay at Parc des Princes for the foreseeable future.
