Zlatan Ibrahimovic Says "It’s Not Over Until I Say It’s Over" After Being Left Out Of Sweden Squad

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has posted a video of himself training on an exercise bike with the caption "It's not over until I say It's over."

Last week, The Swedish Football Federation confirmed that the 39-year-old would not take part in this summer's competition after he damaged his ACL during AC Milan's Serie A clash against Juventus.

In a post on their official Twitter account, they claimed Ibrahimovic had informed manager Janne Andersson that the knee injury will stop him from making a historic appearance at the Euros.

Despite those reports, however, the former Manchester United and Barcelona striker posted a cryptic video to his social media on Wednesday afternoon that may suggest a shock return to action.

He posted a clip of him on an exercise bike with the caption: "It's not over until I say It's over."

AC Milan will face Atalanta on Sunday in their final Serie A game of the season.

The veteran striker is known for his incredible ability to recover from serious injuries.

Back in 2016, while playing for Manchester United, he was ruled out for nine months with significant knee ligament damage after a nasty fall against Anderlecht.

Many doubted whether he would return to football after such a horrific blow, but the ever-optimistic Swede was convinced he would come back stronger than ever.

And he did just that.

The striker would eventually decide to join LA Galaxy in a huge move for Major League Soccer and, in that spell, he would score 15 goals in his first 17 games, including a hat-trick against Orlando City.


In terms of his international career, Ibrahimovic originally retired after Sweden were knocked out of Euro 2016 after failing to reach the knockout stages.

But back in March, it was announced that Zlatan had been called up to the national team, five years after making his final appearance on the international stage.

He made his international return during a 1-0 win against Georgia in March and just three days later, appeared in their 3-0 win against Kosovo.
