Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been Sweden’s most important player for more than a decade, but at 32 years of age, he has little time left at the top of the game. Sweden already have a number of potential replacements lined up for the Paris St Germain striker. Manchester city star John Guidetti is one of them. The intense competition for places at City meant that Guidetti could only watch from the sidelines. This led to the club loaning him out to Stoke city in order to help him get some experience.
The loan spell at the Britannia stadium, though, has been very disappointing for the Swedish international after he made just six substitute appearances throughout the entire campaign. Ibrahimovic has recently spoken about the plight of Guidetti. He says that it is extremely worrying for the national team that players like Guidetti are not getting first-team opportunities even at a mid-table club like Stoke. Ibrahimovic is expected to take part in the upcoming friendly matches against Denmark and Belgium.
Sweden will not be taking part in the World Cup 2014 after narrowly missing out on a place in the finals. Ibrahimovic has urged the national team boss Erik Hamren to utilise more young players in the upcoming friendly matches.
“I’m worried about Swedish football after me. I am very worried. Very worried. Actually. Why? How many seats in their national teams? How many talents we have out there? We have the under-17 team. Is that what we’re waiting for? We’re talking about Guidetti. Well, how many games did he do this year? These two games are completely unimportant. Everyone thinks of holiday. We’ll just play by them and then it’s vacation,” said Ibrahimovic.
The forward was recently named as the best player in the French league after helping PSG to the title.
