MILAN (AP) – AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri is confident striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic will return to the Serie A giants with his winning mentality intact.
Ibrahimovic said Wednesday that he is not enjoying his football as much as he once did and claimed he wants to retire while still at his best.
Allegri says, ''I am sure Ibrahimovic will return with the desire to get back to winning ways. And to do so we need everyone to be calm and ready to give their all.''
Ibrahimovic has spent the past week on international duty with Sweden, but he returns to training with Milan Monday because he is suspended for his country's final European Championship qualification match against the Netherlands.
The 30-year-old still has three years left on his contract with Milan.
