Former Milan player Joe Jordan finds Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s form at age 40 ‘simply unbelievable. It’s like he abolished the concept of age.’
The Sweden international is ready to make his comeback after knee surgery and an aggravated Achilles tendon, so should be on the bench this weekend against Hellas Verona.
He celebrated his 40th birthday earlier this month and is raring to get back on the pitch.
“I find him simply unbelievable,” Jordan told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“You cannot believe he’s 40 years old. It’s like Ibrahimovic abolished the concept of age. He has a remarkable physique, but it’s the mind that is the key.
“If Milan have improved so much since his arrival, it is also thanks to what Zlatan brought to the table. You can see how the team has evolved, they are more confident, because having someone like that who has won everywhere with this enormous personality, that changes you.”
