"His knee is so strong that the doctors said they had never seen anything like it," Mino Raiola told Swedish newspaper Expressen.

Apparently, surgeons at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine were so shocked by the 35-year-old's peak condition they wanted to carry out more tests on him.

"Zlatan is so strong that the doctor wants him back after his career to research on him. They work on the world's best research institutions for the knees and ligaments.

"They research a lot on the subject and that is why they are better than everyone else, and doctors want back Zlatan to do research on him.

"So after Zlatan's career, we will go back and open him up again to do research on his ligaments."

Or it could be that, as has proven the case so many times before, normal rules simply don't apply to Zlat.

Time will no doubt tell.
