Zlatan Ibrahimovic Picks Himself XI Times In His Perfect Team

There is no one who loves themselves more in sport than Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the LA Galaxy striker has once again proved how much he backs his own ability by picking himself XI times in his best XI.

It wouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who likes football if they heard Zlatan Ibrahimovic refer to himself as the best player in the world, even at 37 and playing in the US.

But not only does the LA Galaxy striker think he's the best he also think he's the top 11 best, even in goal, as he chose a team of 11 Zlatans for his Best XI.

On top of that the former Manchester United striker also mused who he'd pick as the manager and said that 'maybe it will be Zlatan,' we'd like to take an educated guess and say it will be.

After all there's only one person who could manage all those egos and that's Zlatan himself, because there's literally nothing the Swede couldn't do.

It's no wonder Ibra is currently in a pretty good mood with himself. Last week he ended a short 'goal drought' by bagging a brace for the Galaxy in their 2-0 win over Toronto.

The two goals took the former PSG forward to 13 goals in 15 games and well on his way to beating last season's tally of 22 goals.

With his goals Galaxy are also in a better position this season than last. In 2018 the west coast side didn't even make the play-offs, finishing seventh in their conference, but this time around they are in 2nd place in the Western Conference.

It's not all been coming up Ibra recently though, literally. In the game against Toronto the 11 time league champion actually had his name spelt wrongly on the back of his shirt.

Whoever had done the printing went with Irbahimovic rather than Ibrahimovic but it was clearly a good omen for him.

How many Zlatan's would be in your best XI?
