BOMBSHELL : Zlatan Ibrahimovic has named his dream team of all time
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has got fans talking for sure, after he presented his dream team on social media. Picking the greatest footballers of all time, the Swedish legend snubbed such icons as Cristiano Ronaldo, Zinedine Zidane or Roberto Carlos but the line-up still looks frighteningly strong. Check it out:
GK: Gianluigi Buffon
DEF: Lillian Thuram, Thiago Silva, Alessandro Nesta and Maxwell
MID: Patrick Viera, Xavi and Pavel Nedved
FWD: Lionel Messi, Ronaldinho and (suprise!) Zlatan himself
Subs: Julio Cesar, Andres Iniesta, Fabio Cannavaro, Gennaro Gattuso and Clarence Seedorf
Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s red card in AC Milan’s game against Parma is likely to be up there with the most controversial moments of the season in Serie A.
It appears to be a result of a simple misunderstanding, though, if Gazzetta Dello Sport is to be believed.
The Italian media outlet tried to reconstruct the events that led to Zlatan’s sending-off and figured that the Swede might have been shown a red card after simply telling referee Fabio Maresca ‘It seems strange to me that you don’t care what I say’.
However, Maresca appeared to have misheard the ‘sembra strano’ (‘it seems strange’) bit and interpreted it as ‘sei un bastardo’ which does not require a translation. If that’s the case, no wonder that Zlatan saw the red.
MMA star Khabib reveals motivational message Zlatan Ibrahimovic sent to him it’s honestly brilliant
UFC legend Khabib Nurmagomedov has often spoken about his love for football and AC Milan star Zlatan Ibrahimovic as one of his favourite players.
So, he was certainly honoured to receive such a powerful message from one of his sporting heroes.
“If you feel young, you’re young,” Ibrahimovic said in his audio message Khabib revealed.
“If you train hard, you train hard. And if you know that you’re better than everybody, you’re better than everybody. Then you just have to do it.
“People talk when you’re number one, they just want to find something to go against you. It’s always the same s**t.”
Khabib retired in October last year, but there are constant rumours of him returning to the octagon. Ibrahimovic’s example is one that could inspire him to come back – the Swede is performing at the highest level even though he’s already 39 years old.
