Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s time at Barcelona is widely regarded as a failure, even though he managed to win five trophies in 13 months in Catalonia.
The Swede is considered to have not fit in with the likes of Lionel Messi, Xavi and Andres Iniesta because his normally prolific strike rate only registered 21 goals in 36 appearances in all competitions.
Only 21, that is still better than a goal every two games. His league tally of 16 also bettered his following season’s total with AC Milan, when he netted 14 times despite playing six more matches.
Ibrahimovic’s biggest failing was the breakdown of his relationship with then-coach Pep Guardiola, who he claimed “hadn’t spoken with him since March,” come the end of his solitary season with the Catalans.
Those 13 months were still highly eventful. Here are 10 of Ibra’s highlights from his time at the Camp Nou.
