And the 38-year-old is ready to walk out of the club if the San Siro outfit appoints Rangnick as their new manager or as a sporting director next season.

The former Barcelona star told Italian news media outlet La Gazzetta dello Sport: "Who is Rangnick? I don't even know who he is."

When asked about his own future, he said: "Ibra plays to win something or he stays at home.

"They told me that retiring in America was too easy, so I came back to Milan. I am here purely for passion, because I'm basically playing for free. Then this COVID situation stopped everything and I thought, maybe there's something trying to tell me that I should retire.

"Fortunately, we got back on the pitch. My calf managed to get involved too, but after two days I was ready to come back into the team. Ibra is like that. But they told me to take it slow.

"Ibra was born to play football and is still the best at playing football. We'll see how I feel in two months. We'll also see what's happening with the club. If this is the situation, to be honest, it's unlikely you'll see me at Milan next season."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Ibrahimovic's body language to Cristiano Ronaldo before taking his spot-kick against Juventus was priceless.

AC Milan were already two-goals down before the referee awarded a penalty to the Rossoneri after Leonardo Bonucci handled the ball in the box after the hour mark.

And the Swedish striker made no mistake as he sent Wojciech Szczesny the wrong way and put his side back into the game despite Ronaldo's antics in the background.
