AC Milan star Zlatan Ibrahimović hinted at a possible return to the Swedish national football team on November 2. ‘Long time no see,’ Ibrahimović said on Twitter, alongside an old photo of him wearing Sweden’s yellow jersey. 39-year-old scored 7 goals for Milan to top the 2020-21 Italian Serie A goal scorers list.

Mixed Martial Arts

UFC President Dana White, has insisted that Khabib Nurmagomedov will keep his lightweight title, revealing his hopes for the Russian Dagestani star to come out of retirement for one final fight.

The 32-year-old sensationally announced he will retire following dominant win over Justin Gaethje at UFC 254 on October 24, with the lightweight king revealing he cannot continue fighting without his late father, Abdulmanap, who died of Covid-19 this year. Nurmagomedov took his unblemished record to 29 wins after the win over Gaethje, and it was thought that he would target 30-0 before retiring, a record that his father wanted him to attain

Champions who retire typically vacate their belt, but White says that the title remains Nurmagomedov’s and that he believes the Dagestani may return to notch his thirtieth win.
