Rumours Of Zlatan's Return

Rumours are flying around in the media that Sweden’s soccer star Zlatan Ibrahimovic will return to play for the Swedish national team after a six month break. According to newspaper Aftonbladet’s sports section Zlatan will make the announcement during a press conference scheduled for Friday afternoon.

But representatives for the Swedish Football Federation refused to comment on the rumours telling newspapers Dagens Nyheter and Svenska Dagbladet that they will have to wait until Friday to find out.

It was in December 2009 after Erik Hamren was appointed manager of the national team that the 29-year-old Barcelona striker announced he would not play for Sweden. He then told media that he lacked motivation and that there were no important matches to play after Sweden failed to qualify for this year’s World Cup in South Africa.
