Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a serial winner, but he just missed out on one new award. 

Journalists from Norway, Sweden and Denmark compiled a list of the top 20 players of all time from the Nordic region.

Zlatan had to settle for second, with Danish legend Michael Laudrup topping the poll. 

Laudrup starred for the likes of Lazio, Juventus, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Ajax during his illustrious career.

Former Manchester United and Danish goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel was third.
