Zlatan Ibrahimovic was his usual self following his 500th career goal against Toronto over the weekend, claiming he is happy for his opposition as they will be ‘remembered as my 500th victim.”
The Swedish forward has been a mainstay at the top of charts for strikers over the past decade now and reached another milestone over the weekend.
Zlatan scored his 500th career goal against Toronto in typical Ibrahimovic style, an acrobatic finish into the bottom corner of the goal.
Though, it was his comments following the game that got him even more press coverage.
He claimed following the game that “I am happy for Toronto because they will be remembered as my 500th victim.”
That wasn’t the only comment he made, with Michael Bradley his next victim after a clash between the pair on the pitch.
He claimed: “He thinks he’s a philosopher of football. I have more goals than he has [played] games, so he should follow my rules.”
Just Zlatan being Zlatan, then!
