Ibrahimovic says goodbye to soccer, stadium in tears, most emotional photos
"From the moment I woke up it was raining.... I said, 'God is sad, too.' My family didn't know. Emotion too strong, I looked like a zombie today.... I wasn't talking, I wasn't joking. Three months ago I was panicking about retirement, instead today I accept it and I am ready. A little sad of course... I have been doing this all my life: soccer has made me a man, it has made me meet so many people, I have traveled all over the world, thanks to soccer. With Milan, there is too much emotion. Milan gave me happiness, second time love. They made me feel at home from day one. When I arrived I made a promise: whoever comes to a club for the second time will fail for sure, but I answered that I have not lost the passion mentality. And we won. Here the second family. From two children at home came 25 more. Great responsibility, the coach gave it to me and I did mine. They can improve even more and be even more successful with this club. Everyone says superman, they are superman, but Ibra has a big heart." These are the words of Zlatan Ibrahimovic on his last day as a footballer.
