Zlatan Ibrahimovic Claims He's The Best Swedish Player Ever On Henrik Larsson's Birthday

Zlatan Ibrahimovic isn't the kind of man to let someone else hog all the limelight, even on their birthday. The LA Galaxy star chose the perfect time to remind everyone that he thinks he's better than Henrik Larsson.

Whenever it comes to being one of my mate's birthdays in this modern age I always feel rather inferior to a lot of other people. A quick check on Facebook reminds me that other people are much better at making memes than me.

See it's not as simple as just posting a nice message about hoping someone has a lovely day anymore. Oh no you have to post some embarrassing photo or video from a previous birthday or make a former photo into a hilarious meme.

The thing is it seems that Zlatan Ibrahimovic hasn't quite grasped the concept of a nice meme for a friend's birthday, instead going for something that blows his own trumpet, peak Ibra.

Okay so it wasn't on a Facebook wall but the Swedish superstar decided that he'd remind everyone he believes he's the best player the country's ever produced, on Henrik Larsson's birthday:

Larsson has always been considered one of the best players the country has produced but weirdly has only won the Swedish Player of the Year award once in his career.

Ibra on the other hand has won it 11 times during his career, including 10 seasons in a row from 2007 to 2016.

The older Swede does have two things that the younger man will never have though. Larsson won the Champions League with Barcelona late on in his career and then won the Premier League with Manchester United during his short spell there a year later.

Happy Birthday Henrik!
