Ibrahimovic returned to Milan in early 2020 for his second stint, having won the Scudetto with them in 2011, and helping them win the title again last season. “I say goodbye to football but not to you,” he remarked after being feted by the San Siro fans following Milan’s 3-1 season-ending triumph against Hellas Verona.
