Zlatan Ibrahimovic set for impressive new job at AC Milan that could also impact Liverpool

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to land a new job at AC Milan that could also have an impact on Liverpool, according to a fresh report.

According to the Financial Times Ibrahimovic is making his third comeback at AC Milan. However this time, the Swede won't be lacing up his boots, but instead act as an adviser to the team’s owners, US private equity firm RedBird.

Ibrahimovic only announced his retirement in June, after a career that saw him represent leading European clubs including Manchester United, Inter, Barcelona and AC Milan.

The enigmatic forward arrived in Milan for his second spell with the club in early 2020, having won the Scudetto with them in 2011, and helped them win the title again in 2022.

Of course, this could have an impact on Liverpool given RedBird, who manage about $10billion worth of assets, have stakes in Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group.

The former Swedish international said he had picked RedBird because of its record of partnering with athletes and celebrities hoping to leave a mark in business.

RedBird include the New York Yankees and Main Street Advisors, a fund that counts NBA star LeBron James and rapper Drake, among its investors.

Ibrahimovic said: “RedBird has partnered with some of the greatest athletes, teams and business figures in the world to create businesses with meaning and impact. I look forward to contributing to their investing activities across their sports, media and entertainment properties.”

Meanwhile, Cardinale said: “What makes a winner of Zlatan’s calibre is not just physical talent, but also high intellect and an entrepreneurial spirit.

“At RedBird, we have developed partnerships with a very select group of high-performing world-class athletes and artists who are able to thrive in the RedBird ecosystem.”
