Zlatan Ibrahimovic shows Sweden team-mate up in training

It must be hard sharing a training ground with Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Defenders must dread coming up against the 34-year-old striker, who seems to only get better with age.

However, it is not just the defenders who are left with their tail between their legs after coming up against the Paris Saint-Germain star, but the attackers too.

Trabzonspor winger Erkan Zengin thought he could outshine the towering Puskas Award winner in a shootout routine during Sweden training. He was wrong.

Attempting to shoot from outside the box before meeting a cross, the aim of the game was to score both goals with as much pizazz as possible. 

After hitting a stinging shot in off the post followed by a half volley, Zengin must have thought he would have a good chance of winning this internal contest.

But Ibrahimovic proved his class with two incredible efforts. First, he chipped to ball over the goalkeeper before meeting the cross to bury a scissor-kick volley. The small crowd assembled went wild.

Good enough for England

It is just another example why so many Premier League clubs are keen to bring him to these shores when his PSG contract expires at the end of the season.

The man himself recently confirmed there was interest from England's elite division and seems open to considering the move.

When asked about a possible move to England, Ibrahimovic said: "Yes, there is an interest, I can confirm that. We have to see where it leads.

"When the moment comes, when all the cards are on the table, that's when I have to go through what I want, and then we'll see who wants it more.

"It's like a marriage. Two parties have to want it, not one or the other. Each side needs to want it as much as the other."
