Zlatan Ibrahimovic Was "Almost Killed" By Former Teammate Mido In Bizarre Scissor Incident

Ahmed Mido made quite a name for himself during his time in football.

He was once sentenced to serve a one month prison sentence when three students asked him for a picture. He said no, beat them up and then damaged their car.

The Egyptian forward was also banished to the Ajax reserves and wasn't allowed back until 'he acted normally'.

He certainly had his fair share of incidents during a 14-year career but a moment involving Zlatan Ibrahimovic during his time at the Dutch club was perhaps his craziest.

Mido "almost killed" Ibra. No, really. Let me explain.

Back in 2003, both players formed a pretty lethal strike partnership for Ajax but during a defeat to rivals PSV Eindhoven, Mido refused to pass to Zlatan when he came on as a substitute.

Basically, the striker was far from happy about being a substitute and well, he took it out on the Swede.

In fact, after the final whistle, Mido went one further when he stormed into the dressing room and called his teammates 'miserable c****', according to Ibrahimovic.

Zlatan responded in typical fashion and said that if anyone was being a c**t, it was him.

Mido then threw a pair of scissors at Zlatan.


Here's how Zlatan described the crazy incident in his autobiography:

"I responded by saying if anybody was a c*** it was him. Mido picked up a pair of scissors and flung them at me. It was completely nuts.

"The scissors whizzed past my head, straight into the concrete wall and made a crack."

Mido finally revealed why he did it a few years back.

He said: "When I came on, we were 2-0 down, I think, and I started arguing with Zlatan on the pitch,"

"I was shouting at everyone and Zlatan was shouting back at me. I had scissors in my hand as I was taking off the wrapping on my ankles. Ten minutes later, I went into the shower and he was sitting at the Jacuzzi.

Well, there we go. Former Tottenham, Middlesbrough and Barnsley striker Mido threw a pair of scissors at one of the greatest strikers of all time - and he lived to tell the tale.
