Zlatan Ibrahimovic Goes back to generate controversy by his statements after being questioned on his eleven ideal in interview conceded to 'The Gazzetta dello Sport', where referred to the FC Barcelona of 'phenomena' and that included to the mythical Xavi, but did not lose opportunity to smash into the leader of the bench in that moment, Pep Guardiola.

"Xavi is in my eleven. The Barcelona was a team of phenomena: first six months up, afterwards by fault of the technician was not well…", expressed the excelso leading Swedish. Zlatan Has one suffices experience in the European football, and to his 40 years follows belonging to the world-wide elite.

At present it dazzles in the Italian football, dressing the T-shirt of the AC Milan, team that returned to the cusp of the Series To: "I Have played in a lot of clubs and have respect by all. But the Milan is the club in which I seat me as home. I go to Milanello all the mornings and do not have haste for going back home. Like this I felt me the first time that came to Milan, went in 2010. With Galliani and Berlusconi, with the team, all those that worked there, there was another feeling, another atmosphere. They said me: 'you Are home, do what want to but have to give resulted'. It liked me this because it could be I same and at the same time played in one of the biggest clubs of the world. Therefore for me the Milan is to be in the peak", signalled the Swedish forward.

"Xavi is in my eleven. The Barcelona was a team of phenomena"

Ibra Has played beside the best, by what when it was questioned on his eleven ideal did not doubt in including to Xavi, beside Scallop. Also it stood out to Maradona: "Because it is the strongest of all time. Yes, he also was stronger that I". Also it referred to Buffon, Nesta and Cannavaro, of the that says: "it Was crazier that I". Maxwell, Maicon, Nedved, Scallop, Xavi, "the offensive midfield player Zidane"… Ronaldo, "the phenomenon, my idol" and Maradona.

Likewise, Zlatan showed some personal facets like his beginnings. It stood out his humble origins, from the 'guetto', and how tied to the woman that today is his wife, Helena, to the one who treated to impress with his Ferrari red.

"Never it went to the centre, was of Rosengard, the guetto. The first time that was there and saw to all these blond, seemed a film, were 17 years old, was another world for me. It liked me and I began to go to the centre all thetime , in the afternoon. A day saw it in the station, by chance, went down of a taxi, I was with my brother. I said him, guau, sooner or later will know it. (..) She did not know who was I. I wrote you, I am the one who has the red… Had a Ferrari red. What appears of shit. But when you come of the gueto, is well have a good car. It is a signal that you have attained it. It were 19 years old, it finish me of mudar to the Ajax. She looked me like a small boy, but did not surrender", explained Ibra.

"I have seen to many that have won the Glass of the World, the Eurocopa, the Champions League, even the Balloon of Gold, have had a wonderful year and afterwards disappeared"

The forward recognised that win is his big "drug", although in spite of this subtracts him importance to the have not been distinguished never with the prize Balloon of Gold: "it would not change my 12 Guldbollen (the annual recognition to the best Swedish footballer in any league of the world that has won in 12 occasions, the last precisely this year) by one of France Football. Because for me they mean continuity. I have seen to many that have won the Glass of the World, the Eurocopa, the Champions League, even the Balloon of Gold, have had a wonderful year, fantastic, afterwards disappeared. But I have been in the game during 25 years. Always in the peak. Then I do not change at all by at all, because something is like a nocaut, a stroke of luck. This is not a stroke of luck".

With regard to the targets that has marked, more than 500 in more than 1.000 parties, recalcó that remains with a goal, the one who annotated to England in the Eurocopa of 2012: "My goal against England in 2012. The other way around from 40 metres. Up. That is my vision of a patada of bicycle (Chilean). And afterwards they are the bicycles that stole when it was young, no one, many: to go to train had to do 7 kilometres, did not have money to buy an and if it found one in the street, took it 'loaned' and afterwards gave it back".

Ibrahimovic, arrogant idol?

Well it is true that of entrance can seem it, arrogant and mezquino, but these appearances remain skewed when discovering that they form part of his personality, and when knowing who is Zlatan Ibrahimovic impossible return despise it. His exultant step from the Malmö, Ajax, until the Juventus, Inter, Barcelona, Milan, PSG, Manchester United, Los Angeles Galaxy, and again in the group 'rossoneri', is sufficient to win the admiration and respect of leaders, colleagues and followers of the world-wide football.
