Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a world class footballer, no doubt about it. Although he may not be to the tastes of everyone, one man has gone one step further in his hatred for the Swedish striker.

Many people don't like Zlatan, they see him as arrogant and rude, and for those reasons, are not fans of his. However, a man called Peter Mangs actually planned to kill Ibrahimovic.

Of course, murder is never acceptable in any way, however, should you commit the atrocity, make sure you have a better defence than what Mangs had.

He didn't want to kill Zlatan because of his on pitch antics, or because he's a huge Pep Guardiola fan, instead, Mangs wanted Ibrahimovic dead because of a supposedly illegally parked vehicle.

In a book released by Mangs, a convicted murderer, he disclosed that he'd wanted to kill Ibrahimovic, and that the Swede had displayed "typical Balkan behaviour".

"I had no weapon with me, but I saw a potential shooting scene."

"I hurried home to fetch a gun and I had to come back pretty quickly. I thought there would be a proper hullabaloo in the media if the gent in question were to be shot."

Thankfully when Mangs came back with the firearm, Ibrahimovic's red Ferrari had moved location.

Mangs was scentenced to life in prison as a result of multiple shootings over a year span in Malmo, Sweden. He was convicted for two counts of murder and eight counts of attempted murder.
