While no one could ever doubt the genius of Paris Saint-Germain and Sweden striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, there is also no denying the fact that the player’s opinion of himself is a little, shall we say, deluded?
Sure the ponytailed frontman is right up there in the higher echelons of world football’s top performers, albeit on a level just below the likes of both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Although, try telling that to the ever-confident 32-year-old.
“I don't need the Ballon d'Or to know that I'm the best,” claimed Ibrahimovic in the Daily Mail last November.
Meanwhile, the Swede’s reaction to missing out on this summer’s World Cup was also equally revealing about how the player views his own abilities, with the forward telling Goal.com: “One thing is for sure, a World Cup without me is nothing to watch so it is not worth while to wait for the World Cup.”
Wonderful attacker, but sorry Ibra, you are not the best thing since sliced bread.
