Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has talked about his return to the Swedish national team in an interview with Daily Mail.
The national team has invited the footballer for the first time since 2016. In 116 games he has scored 62 goals and is the top scorer for the national team.
– How has your family reacted to your return to the national team?
– That’s not a good question. Vincent cried when I left. But everything is all right now. Zlatan has two sons. The youngest Vincent is 12 years old and the eldest Maximilian is 14.
Ibrahimovic also spoke about the feelings he has about being back in the Swedish national team
– Playing for the national team is the most important thing a footballer can do. When I followed Sweden’s matches, I felt that I could help the team, do something for it.
Of course, it was not just my decision. The desires of a player and a coach must coincide; it must be a joint decision.
I got the opportunity to play for my country again, and I will do it with dignity. But it’s not just about that. It sounds as if I am the only one who is happy about it, but I returned to the national team to deliver results for the coach, teammates and the country.
No matter how much I say here, if there are no results, those words mean nothing.
