Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s top 10 Swedish athletes of all time


Zlatan Ibrahimovic is not happy. Swedish paper Dagens Nyheter put together a list of the country’s top 150 athletes of all time and Zlatan came in at number two behind five-time Wimbledon winner Bjorn Borg.

When asked about this blatant attempt to anger him, Zlatan did not disappoint.

From the Guardian:

Dagens Nyhether: Congratulations, you have finished second on the list of Swedish sports people of all time, how do you feel about that?

Zlatan: Thank you but to finish second is like finishing last.

DN: You have previously mentioned Muhammad Ali, Petter Northug and Ronaldo as sports people you rank highly. Who would have finished on the podium if you had ranked the best Swedish sports people of all time?

Zlatan: On that list I would have been No1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, with due respect to the others.

So that’s Zlatan’s Zlatanful top five, but who would round out his top 10? Here it is:

1. Zlatan
2. Zlatan
3. Zlatan
4. Zlatan
5. Zlatan
6. OK, Zlatan again
7. Still Zlatan
8. One more Zlatan
9. Just kidding, another Zlatan!
10. Dolph Lundgren
