Football legend Zlatan Ibramovic today set social media on fire after he named his dream XI team. The catch: the team consisted of him in all positions!
The Swede renown for his cocky, confident attitude has often referred to himself as the best player in the world ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, and other incredible footballers. Once, when he was asked about the best Strike in the premiere league, he readily named Lukaku, Aguero. The interviewer then asked why he didn’t mention himself, he confidently said: Lions don’t compare themselves to humans.
It therefore came as no surpise to his fans when he revealed his XI of all time and named himself in all XI positions. He wrote:
My favourite team of all time. I only have to decide the coach. Maybe will be Zlatan. See the tweet below:
The 37-year-old footballer currently plays for LA Galaxy in the MLS.
It is no wonder however that Zlatan is in a good mood. Just last week he ended a short ‘goal drought’ by bagging a brace for the Galaxy in their 2-0 win over Toronto.
The two goals took the former PSG forward to 13 goals in 15 games and well on his way to beating last season’s tally of 22 goals.
With his goals, Galaxy are also in a better position this season than last. In 2018 the west coast side didn’t even make the play-offs, finishing seventh in their conference, but this time around they are in 2nd place in the Western Conference.
Zlatan has played in clubs such as Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, PSG, and Manchester United, racking up 438 goals and 170 assists in 725 games.
