Being able to score 26 goals in 41 appearances, there is no argument that Zlatan Ibrahimović was out to prove a point as he continued his career at Manchester United. Known for his excellent skills in front of goal, the former Swedish international has graced the centre stage in most of the biggest leagues in Europe.
With a lot of transfers to some of the biggest clubs in the world, Ibrahimović has acquired a lot of awards and the 35 years old is showing no sign of stopping yet, as he is looking to add to his collection of awards by steering United to a league trophy.
In his final season at Paris Saint-Germain, Ibrahimović produced an excellent performance. He raked up a total of 38 goals as the club went on to win the Ligue 1 trophy.
Along with Eric Bailly, Paul Pogba, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Ibrahimović moved to Old Trafford to become one of the four significant signings for the Red Devils during that particular transfer window.
His prowess on the pitch and his humongous mouth off of it are known to practically every football fan, but Ibrahimovic is interesting with many other, lesser known facts carefully hunted down by Betfy UK.
For the fans out there, here are some cool sides of Zlatan’s life:
Bike thief: As a Swedish boy growing up in the poorer parts of Malmo, to cover the 5km distance to the training field and back, Zlatan would steal people’s bikes. At one point, he was found out to be the culprit when he stole the bike of the assistant manager of the training, so he was seriously scolded.
One of the most expensive footballers of all time: Although there are other footballers who take the top 10 list of the most expensive players in a single transfer, Zlatan is considerably expensive for he’s the 16th most expensive player over the period of his career.
He is a martial arts expert: At the age of 17 while still in Malmo, Zlatan was able to achieve a black belt in Taekwondo, making him a martial arts expert. The Italian National Taekwondo Team also recognized him by giving him an honorary black belt while he was at AC Milan.
