Zlatan Being Zlatan: Ibrahimovic's Top Quotes of 2012

0 of 5

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic is one of the game's most polarizing figures. There are many who despise him, and others who worship him.

    What Ibra brings to the table is tremendous skill in a physically imposing package. Along with this, comes his super-sized ego.

    His confidence as a player and as a person knows no bounds. Many view this as arrogance while others view it solely as talk from a man who can back it up.

    2012 was another banner year for Ibrahimovic quotes. As 2012 comes to a close, sit back and enjoy Zlatan being Zlatan.

The Zlatan Way

    Zlatan let us know he is Zlatan and will not change how he plays:

    I came here to win and I will continue to be the way I am, because the way I am, I had in ten years a fantastic career. So people telling me now to change… no! I will tell people what to do.”

    Have to say that his way has worked out well so far.
