Zlatan Ibrahimovic Quotes

Ibrahimovic is undoubtedly the biggest name in Ligue1 at the moment. This is not only because he is scoring tons of goals and delivering assists on a conveyor belt but also because of his way to deal with the media, fans and even teammates.

Although his ghostwriter admitted some of the quotes from the recent book “I am Zlatan” were simply invented, others were caught on camera and make for memorable moments. Here are some of the best Zlatan Ibrahimovic quotes:

-Reporter – “Is your playing style Swedish or Yugoslavian?”
Zlatan – “It’s Zlatan-style.”

-Reporter – “You’ve got some scars on your face, Zlatan. What has happened?”
Zlatan – “Well…I don’t know…you’ll have to ask your wife about that”

-“Absolutely not. I have ordered a plane. It is much faster.” (on rumors that he bought a Porsche)

Zlatan – “According to my calculations it is possible to lose nine points in only three games.”

-“I felt like crap when I was sitting in the locker room with Guardiola staring at me like I was an annoying distraction, an outsider. It was nuts. He was a wall, a stone wall. I didn’t get any sign of life from him and I was wishing myself away every moment with the team.”

-“Then Guardiola started his philosopher thing. I was barely listening. Why would I? It was advanced bullshit about blood, sweat and tears, that kind of stuff.”
