Coming into play on Sunday in Sassuolo during the victory which allowed AC Milan to be crowned Italian champions (0-3), Zlatan Ibrahimovic may have played his last football match on this occasion.

The legendary Swedish international striker, who will turn 41 on October 3, will be out for “seven to eight months,” his club said on Wednesday.

He has to have surgery on his left knee.

"Arthroscopy had been scheduled for some time to definitively resolve the instability of the joint through reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament, with lateral reinforcement and meniscus repair," AC Milan said in a statement.

The former player (among others), of Ajax Amsterdam, FC Barcelona and PSG, had not yet announced whether or not he was stopping his career.

Last March, while he was in selection, “Ibra” spoke at a press conference: “I have this little fear: what will happen next?

I know that I will have other possibilities, that I will have many offers.

But this adrenaline that I have on the lawn I will not find it anywhere else.
