Responding to former AC Milan midfielder, Zvonimir Boban, who suggested the Swedish should retire because of is age and injuries.
“Boban said it would be better for me to quit? If I see a stronger player than me, I’ll retire. But I haven’t seen that yet.”
The former Barcelona and Ajax player also talked about Milan’s summer window transfer signings.
“We’re even stronger than last year as a squad. Overall, we’re a better team, the market in the summer after winning the Scudetto strengthened us and now we have more alternatives on the bench. If I didn’t like things, I wouldn’t be here.”
