Zlatanisms: Twelve of The Greatest Zlatan Ibrahimovic Quotes

 9 years, 5 months ago 7 Comments

Arrogance can be quite an off-putting characteristic in a person and even more so with a modern day footballer. The game that we love, which is arguably the working-class man’s favourite sport; has been hijacked by money, gangster-wannabes, and ego-driven maniacs who live in their very own warped, untouchable reality.

However, there’s one man who seems to get away with such constant displays of petulance. They call him ‘Zlatan.’ The fact that he has the ability and record to live up to his cocky demeanour more than likely provides him with a bit of breathing space. No matter what the reason is for the seemingly mutual adoration for Zlatan – here are twelve of the best Zlatan Ibrahimovic quotes to have come from the lips of the big self-assured Swede…
