At 38 years and still going strong. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has stunned the football world with his incredible performance. Going down in history as one of the best strikers in the world. Growing up, Zlatan revered Ronaldo, The Brazilian. This Swedish player has more than 500 career goals to his name and is Sweden's all-time leading goalscorer. Zlatan has won over 31 trophies. He started his football career in Malmö FF before going on to join Juventus. When he was just 17 years of age, he was invited to Arsenal to do auditions. The manager at the time Arsène Wenger wanted him to do tryouts, to see if he was fit for the club and how did Ibrahimovic respond to the invitation? He said "Zlatan doesn't do auditions.". Known for his arrogance and collosal ego, he was still everyone's favourite when it came to football.
He is praised for his goal scoring ability. And the chance to score some unexpected goals, like the acrobatic kick. Which was nominated for Puskás Goal Of The Year Award. He has played for; Malmö FF, Juventus, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Paris Saint Germain, Barcelona, Ajax, Manchester United and La Galaxy. And is currently playing for AC Milan. During his stay at La Galaxy, he scored a hat-trick against the club rivals. When asked about the MLS, he said;
"MLS is not the level of Europe, to be honest. Before I played with players on my level or close to it, which makes the game connect easier. Here, I am like a Ferrari among Fiats."
He even went on to call himself the best player in the MLS. He once tweeted " There are many kings, but one God". Some would say this tweet was referring to him. But apart from his ego, and his antics. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is an excellent player and prides family as the most important thing. He puts his children Vincent and Maximilian above his football career.
"You should become the best, unless it's pointless"- Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Do you think he deserves that title; god?
