Zlatan Ibrahimovic once said, “There is only one Zlatan.” And I don’t think I need to testify that statement. We all know that there is indeed only one Zlatan. I am sure if we even open up a dictionary to search for words like “egoistic” or “pompous”, Zlatan’s name would appear right next to them, for no other player is as boastful as this 6 foot 5 inch Swedish man. And mind you, I say that with utmost respect for the player, who is also of the belief that being egoistic is also a quality, which is something I agree with.
