Zlatan Ibrahimovic named second-greatest Swedish sportsman ever, and he’s pissed
Have you heard of Björn Borg? He was really good at tennis. He was ranked No. 1 in the world for a total of 109 weeks, has the highest winning percentage of any male player ever and won 11 majors.
In a recent poll, he was ranked the greatest Swedish sportsperson ever, ahead of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. And Zlatan is pissed.
Dagens Nyhether: Congratulations, you have finished second on the list of Swedish sports people of all time, how do you feel about that?
Zlatan: Thank you but to finish second is like finishing last.
DN: You have previously mentioned Muhammad Ali, Petter Northug and Ronaldo as sports people you rank highly. Who would have finished on the podium if you had ranked the best Swedish sports people of all time?
Zlatan: On that list I would have been No. 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, with due respect to the others
At this point, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is playing a caricature of himself in public, and it’s wonderful. All hail Zlatan.
