Swedish stellar striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, ended up second on the list of the greatest Swedish sportsman of all time. But when congratulated, Zlatan responded with his usual, signature statement: Zlatan is not impressed.
“Thank you but to finish second is like finishing last.” Zlatan said.
“On that list I should have been No1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, with due respect to the others,” he added.
Five-time Wimbledon champion and eleven-time grand slam winner, the legendary tennis player, Bjorn Borg, won the number one spot in this celebrated list. He truly deserved this top rank, since he had an absolutely dazzling career, embellished with five Wimbledon championships and eleven grand slam titles.
The 33-year-old Ibra, known for his pompous, imperious style, might not the best Swedish sportsman. However, he indeed is the the most entertaining player of all time as he continues to dazzle us and amuse us with his quirky playing panache, actions and comments, both on and off-pitch.
