The 40-year-old star promised not to end his career until helping the Italian club win silverware

Zlatan Ibrahimovic vowed not to leave AC Milan until he helps the club win a trophy.

The 40-year-old striker returned to Milan in 2020 after a stint in MLS, but has not lifted a trophy since helping Manchester United win the Europa League in 2016-17.

Ibrahimovic has not yet played in 2022 due to a recurring Achilles tendon issue, but he promised he would not leave or retire until the club wins silverware.

“My future is football, my world is football,” the 40-year-old Swedish star said.

“I am disappointed that I am not able to play at the moment, this really pains me, especially when the team is doing well. I want to be there and help the team, we’ve done great things since I arrived and now we are only missing one element: a trophy.

“We are fighting to achieve this, I won’t quit until I have won something with this Milan side.”

AC Milan still have two trophies left to play for this season.

The Rossoneri are joint-top of the Serie A table, level with Napoli through 27 games played, but trail on goal difference.

Milan will also face Inter in the Coppa Italia semi-final with the first leg set for Tuesday.

Ibrahimovic won two trophies during his first stint in Milan, which ran from 2010-12, lifting the Serie A and Italian Super Cup.
