Zlatan Ibrahimovic has said so many outrageous, controversial and downright hilarious things over the years that you’d need an entire book to include all of his best quotes.

The charismatic Swede is an absolute dream for headline-hungry journalists. Almost everything that comes out of his mouth becomes a story. People care what he has to say because he speaks his mind and, more importantly, loves playing the role of ‘Zlatan’.

He’s never boring, that’s for sure, and it’s wonderful to see him back in the Premier League with Manchester United after rejoining the Red Devils on a one-year contract in August.

Ibrahimovic is still recovering from the serious knee injury that prematurely ended his season last term.

But the 36-year-old is nearing his return to the first team and could feature for the Red Devils, all going well, before the New Year.

Zlatan: I've come to finish what I started

"I said I have come back to finish what I started," Zlatan said in an interview with his former Barcelona teammate Thierry Henry for Sky Sports.

"Everything I built up in the first season - obviously we won the three trophies - the ending for me was not the ending I wanted, or nobody wanted, especially after how the season went.

"The target is the Premier League. That is my target to finish.

"Everything I started in the first season, we will finish in the second one."

The moment Zlatan made Henry crack up

During the same interview, Zlatan made Henry laugh with a classic Zlatan comment.

The type of comment only he can come out with.

After Henry pointed out that Zlatan’s image wasn’t on one of the walls of the Aon Training Complex - alongside the likes of Sir Bobby Charlton, George Best and Cristiano Ronaldo - Zlatan said: "I know what you're going to ask me. It's coming next year.”


He then added: "You know why? [I'm not on the wall]. Because they still don't know how God is looking."

Henry had to briefly disappear off camera because he was laughing so much.


Zlatan also amused himself with that one.
