The always exciting Swedish international has announced to the world that he plans to leave professional football for good in the fall of 2014 when his contract with Milan runs out.

Although Ibra has set the date for his retirement, he has also set the bar high for his achievements with AC Milan over next few years as to not let down his supporters too much.

“I want to continue playing for two or three more seasons and want to win every possible trophy while wearing the jersey of Milan,” Ibrahimovic was quoted as saying by Tuttosport.

Barcelona Beats Bayern Munich 2-0 To Win Audi Cup

Barcelona took on Bayern Munich Wednesday night in front of a sold out crowd at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany for the final of 2011 Audi Cup.

Both sides chose to play a host of young players along with a few of their normal strong starters. Barca mixed up their lineup somewhat from the previous tie against Internaccional and chose the combination of Andres Iniesta and Thiago Alcantara in the midfield which proved to be a solid decision. Bayern were forced to start several normal subs due to the fact that Arjen Robben and Franck Ribbery were out with injuries.
