Zlatan Ibrahimovic Names His Dream XI And It's Ridiculously Good

Naturally, Zlatan Ibrahimovic makes it into Zlatan Ibrahimovic's dream XI.

He's revealed his all-time XI and he's named himself up front.

Ibrahimovic, 37, has enjoyed a glittering professional career, plying his trade in the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A and Ligue 1.

He's won the lot and played with a LOT. We're talking some of the very best talent in world football, so, needless to say, his dream XI is brimmed with ridiculous talent.

The Swedish hero is joined in attack with Barcelona greats Lionel Messi and Ronaldinho.

He played with Messi while at Barcelona and Ronaldinho at AC Milan.

In midfield, Patrick Viera, Xavi and Pavel Nedved. Spicy.

Ibrahimovic was teammates with Viera at both Juventus and Inter Milan following the Frenchman leaving Arsenal for Serie A in 2005, and rubbed shoulders with Xavi and Nedved at Barcelona & Juventus, respectively.

Lillian Thuram, Thiago Silva, Alessandro Nesta and Maxwell make up the defensive line with Gianluigi Buffon between the sticks.

Julio Cesar, Andres Iniesta, Fabio Cannavaro, Gennaro Gattuso and Clarence Seedorf also get a shout-out, all named as substitutes.

What a team.

Ibrahimovic uploaded a picture of his dream XI on social media, accompanied with the words:

"In I Am Football I present my dream team. I also put in 50 pages with complete statistics and fun facts from my career, like how many goals I have done with my right foot and how many minutes I played with Inter. It will give you something to talk about this Christmas," he wrote.

Of course, no room for any Manchester United players.

Ibrahimovic enjoyed a brilliant debut season in England - scoring 17 Premier League goals, before suffering a serious knee injury.

Though no mention of any United players in his team.
