Zlatan Ibrahimovic Angry Players Are Moving To Saudi Pro League

Zlatan Ibrahimovic says footballers who move to Saudi Arabia risk their legacies becoming about money rather than talent.

The Swede, 42, retired in June at AC Milan after a trophy-laden career.

The former Manchester United and Paris St-Germain striker says he received offers from China and Saudi Arabia.

“I think players that reach a certain level, they have to stop at a certain stage – the big stage,” he said.

High profile players including Cristiano Ronaldo, Riyad Mahrez, Karim Benzema and England midfielder Jordan Henderson have moved to Saudi Arabia in the last 12 months.
