Zlatan Ibrahimovic ruled out the prospect of Arsene Wenger taking charge of AC Milan as he won’t fancy the challenge involved
The former Arsenal boss has been linked with a surprise move to AC Milan due to his connection with new chief executive Ivan Gazidis, who left the Gunners in October.
But former Milan star Ibrahimovic can’t imagine any scenario that sees Wenger ever head off to the San Siro.
“I think it’s more likely that I’ll come back to Milan than Arsene Wenger will go there,” Ibrahimovic told L’Equipe.
“I don’t think he wants to go to Italy and face that challenge. Milan is not an easy challenge.”
The Swedish striker enjoyed a stellar first season in the MLS with new club LA Galaxy.
Ibrahimovic managed 22 goals and seven assists in 26 MLS games, but was unable to help Galaxy reach a playoff spot.
The 37-year-old is uncertain over what the future holds for him.
“I don’t know what I’m going to do, I know that a lot of European clubs are interested, but I’m happy here,” Ibrahimovic added.
“I love my life here and my family do too.
“And I need a challenge, a reason to keep playing: I don’t want to go to a club just because I’m Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
“I want to go to make a difference. That’s what I’ve always done, everywhere.”
