Zlatan Ibrahimovic is one of the world’s best players and even at 32 years of age he is still going strong.
The Sweden international has just finished a very successful 2013-14 season in which he has won no fewer than three trophies with Paris Saint-Germain.
PSG won the Ligue 1 title for the second year in a row, while also picking up the Coupe de la Ligue and the Trophee des Champions. On a personal level, the former Barcelona and AC Milan striker had a sensational campaign, scoring 41 goals in all competitions – 26 of which came in the league.
Ibrahimovic has never been one to be modest about his achievements. The former Ajax star, who is easily the world’s most interesting and enigmatic footballer, once claimed that he did not go for trial at Arsenal when he was 17 because “Zlatan doesn’t do auditions”, and compared himself to a ‘Ferrari’ in his autobiography.
And now he has posted a picture of himself with the trophies he has won on social networking site Twitter.
Indeed, it was a successful season both for PSG and for Ibrahimovic, but if they want to establish themselves as a true European superpower, then they have to take the Champions League by storm.
Having failed to progress beyond the quarter-finals of Europe’s premier club competition for two seasons in a row, it is high time that the Ligue 1 giants launch an assault on Europe.
Perhaps next season will be ‘great’ instead of being just “good” for PSG.
