The agent of Zlatan Ibrahimovic says that the Swede is Lionel Messi, Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson all rolled into one.
Ibrahimovic even once declared to team-mate Marco Verratti that he is Jesus Christ himself.
Mino Raiola has claimed that the Swede , who is never away from the headlines has the technique of Messi, the character of Ali and strength of Tyson, making him a “unique” player.
Raiola ,the Swede’s agent says that it is due to this reason that Paris Saint-Germain can not sell the 33-year-old this summer, despite his recent controversies.
The Swede superstar has been recently involved in a lot of controversy , especially with the French Media.Recently when a French Journalist asked him something about his game , he responded by saying “You know football better than me?”.
He clashed with a journalist once agin after PSG’s 1-1 draw with league leaders Lyon, when he picked up an error of the journalist.
Last week, Ibrahimovic was in the headlines after he called France a “s**t country” in a foul-mouthed rant which was caught on French TV cameras.A French politician called for the Swede to leave the country, but he did later apologise for the remark, which he believes was said in the heat of the moment and was merely a football-based comment.
In a latest bid to clear his client’s name, Raiola told L’Equipe that his man has the qualities of three of the most famous sportsmen in history.
He said: “Theoretically, Ibrahimovic could be sold this summer – but PSG would have to actually want that. Which leads me to say that it would be virtually impossible.
“Today he is still the most important player in PSG’s project. Where’s his potential replacement? Where’s the new Zlatan? It’s impossible to find someone like him today and PSG know that.
“Zlatan is unique a he’s the only player in the world who measures 1.96 metres, has the technique of Lionel Messi, the character of Muhammad Ali and the strength of Mike Tyson.
“I’ve never forced players to do things they don’t want a Zlatan will extend his deal beyond 2016 if he wants to. One thing he won’t be, though, is a benchwarmer. He is the star of the team or he is gone.”In a latest bid to clear his client’s name, Raiola told L’Equipe that his man has the qualities of three of the most famous sportsmen in history.
