Johannesburg: Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who believes that age is just a number, has insisted he can go on to play for another 15 years if he stays healthy and continues to find the back of the net.
Despite being 35-years-old, Ibrahimovic has been in prime form this season and has scored 10 times in his last nine matches in competitions, thus proving that he is still a force to be reckoned with when it comes to scoring goals.
"I feel happy, I feel good.Even if I`m 35, in my mind I`m 20," Sport24 quoted Ibrahimovic as saying. "I think I could play also at 50, but it won`t be down to me. The older I get, the better I get, like red wine! You like red wine? I`m a perfect example of that. The older I get, the better I play.
"Revealing the secret behind his success, the Swede said that taekwondo has helped him a lot to stay in shape."I`ve played in different championships, in different countries, and you need to adapt your body to the game and the way it`s played here," he said.
The United striker scored both the goals in his side`s 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion on Saturday and has now scored 16 goals in all competitions this season, besides having three assists to his name as well.
