The ageless Swede, currently leading AC Milan on a Serie A title charge, has spent a career doing the impossible. The Twitter compilation starts with a spine-tingling voiceover from the great man and goes right back to his days as a lanky teenager at Malmo.
Even then, he was putting defenders on their backsides and getting fans out of their seats with a jaw-dropping array of mazy runs and elastic, kung-fu volleys.
That's continued as he's played for nine different clubs across seven different leagues - bringing goals and trophies to Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, PSG, Manchester United and LA Galaxy.
Zlatan recently broke the 500 goal barrier in club football - not to mention the all-time record 62 goals he has for Sweden.

Not many players can have a 10 minute video of just goals :crown:- EmkayApproved (@ILOVEMKXY) February 8, 2021
However while there have been a few more prolific goalscorers than Zlatan, surely there can be no player who's so regularly scored goals than no other player could. At 6ft 5in with a unique skill set, Zlatan's goals regularly look like they have been put together with CGI.
When he rejoined AC Milan aged 38 - and after two years in MLS - many thought it was one move too many for the old lion. He's since scored 27 goals in 37 games to reinvigorate the Rossoneri.

As for those people who thought Zlatan's days of humiliating defenders and baffling goalkeepers were over? The man himself has a message:
"So you think that I'm done," he explains. "That my career will soon be over. You don't know me.
All my life I had to fight. No one believed in me, so I had to believe in myself. Some people wanted to break me, but they only made me stronger. Others wanted to exploit me, they only made me smarter.
"And now you think I'm done? To all of you, I only have one thing to say: I'm not like you, because I'm not you.
"I am Zlatan Ibrahimovic. And I'm just warming up!"
