So the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo or Frank Ribery can have a go at the Ballon d’Or since Swedish striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is not interested in it. Zlatan sees himself on the upward spiral for his club, Paris St Germain. By scoring eight goals in this season’s Champions League – as many as Real Madrid’s Ronaldo, Zlatan led the club into the last 16 stage.
When asked by the reporters about the favourite to land the coveted prize, Zlatan replied, “I don’t need the Ballon d’Or to know I’m the best. It matters more to some players. It’s not something I think about and it is something that is not important for me.”
Ibrahimovic is in contention with the likes of Real striker, Cristiano Ronaldo, who according to many football pundits is the competitor to bag the prize. Ronaldo scored a hattrick against Ibrahimovic’s Sweden and in turn, led Portugal into next year’s World Cup in Brazil.
Even though personal rewards have been hard to achieve for the former AC Milan and Inter Milan striker, Zlatan still holds an upperhand when it comes to scoring goals.
