Whilst the great man’s autobiography proved to largely feature absolute twaddle in a bid to capitalise on in legendary status, there’s still some absolute gems floating around about the great Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Here’s PSG’s Thiago Silva divulging one of our favourite anecdotes about the Swede when talking to Sky Sports Deutschland.
During his time with AC Milan, Ibra had to share his mountain size ego with a pint size Italian called Reno Gattuso, predictably fire works ensued.
The protagonist of this story is Zlatan Ibrahimovic. One day, during a training session, Gattuso spent all morning teasing Zlatan.
He was provoking him, and Zlatan took it without apparently saying anything. In fact his revenge would come soon after.
Rino and Zlatan met again in the dressing room after training, and Ibra lifted the entire weight of his team-mate, flipped him over and threw him in the bin!
It was crazy, we all started laughing thinking about Gattuso’s face. I swear, I couldn’t stop laughing for a week!
Ah dressing room japes….
