He stated that his age and the period he played a competitive match last are the reasons why Ibrahimovic move back to San Siro have been given a second thought.
Ibrahimovic who won Serie A with AC Milan in 2011 has been inactive in the football scene since his contract ended with LA Galaxy in USA where he spent his last 2 years playing.
After leaving LA Galaxy two months ago, Ibrahimovic has been linked to different clubs but a move back to Milan has been the major news.
“The longer it goes on, the harder it becomes,” Boban told Italy’s Radio Uno.
“He is 38, has been inactive for two months. “It’s not easy to start again. Especially considering there are only five months until the end of the season. I can’t repeat what Paolo [Maldini] said.
“Let’s hope Ibra makes the right choice — even for himself. We need to see how the next matches go. Ibra is a different solution to the others, he can give a lot in the short-term and for this reason he is unique.
“Let’s see if there is the absolute necessity to act now or at the end of the season. Let’s see if, aside from this, we need to make attacking signings. But Ibra is unique, a different player in comparison to the others even if he isn’t young.
“He has an extreme character. When we started the conversation started, however, we were in a different league position.”
AC Milan are currently 10th on the table in Serie A but have gone four matches unbeaten in the league.
