Bull. Shit. First of all, Zlatan has too big of a heart to not help his brother in need, it's practically impossible if you know the guy a bit. Even if he had problems with him, one of Zlatan's siblings would have done it for him (acting like an intermediary).

And tbh, even though I don't know a lot about Zlatan's brother. Was he there for him in his childhood? Did he treat his mother well? If I recall correctly he speaks about it in his book, how his older brothers never where there for him, didn't treat their mom well at all. It was basically him, his little brother and his elder sister all alone with a struggling mother and an alcoholic father. So yeah. But still I think he helped him, maybe not directly, but he really isn't the kind of guy to let something like that happen.

So yeah, believing an fb post on serious stuff like this is really fucking disrespectful.


I dont think Zanetti4life has said anything other than the fact that someone has posted that on Zlatan's facebook page....

Surely without a doubt ibrahimovic is a world class striker, it is just that he is unlucky.
Nowadays,strikers like him are rare , only balotelli i can say is a little similar to him.

He is unlucky against all top teams :oblivious:

meanwhile Icardi is lucky so he can score against Rube for fun, Milito was lucky so he scored against Real, Barca, Bbilan, Rube, Chelsea, Bayern :yao:

And on what do you base that opinion? Ibra really has done nothing to warrant a douchebag status, nothing.

If you refer to him changing a lot of teams, it's simple. Ibrahimovic is an amazing footballer, but he doesn't have the football culture, I mean for him, the only thing that counts is winning. So he will do everything possible to win, that's it. He has no emotions in regard to his teams. That's just how he is, doesn't mean he's a cunt.

His 2 older sisters (mother's side of the family) were never there for him and were addicted to drugs. His older brother (father's side) was there for him but often had arguments with their alcoholic father. At a certain point he left the house of their father.

So he kisses a couple of crests and that makes him an asshole. By those extreme logics he's also a saint for funding football pitches for kids.

21 Jun 14, 23:46
I certainly agree he is an asshole, I've read his famous book. But not because he kisses the badges. He wants to be loved by fans of the club he plays for. That's his simple take on life, he doesn't really care for who he plays nowadays. He did want to go to Barca tho. Which was totally understandable at that time.

Even tho that kinda backfired for him :D

funny how he gets injured a lot of times before some important match, nobody ever mentions that, except for him in his book :troll:

but otherwise, c'mon, this guy scores, dribbles and create chances, one of the more complete forwards out there, and still people talk about him like he's a 17year old forward that shit his pants in every bigger game. it's just no true, even Suarez haven't 'performed' in every big game, neither has Messi or CR7. He is doing better than some of you think.


he scored two against portugal but sweden is not a good nt and Ronaldo had a field day against those defenders
scored a winning goal in an el clasico
scored a few against Inter with Milan, and against Juve
played brilliant against Barcelona with PSG

let's talk about he plays, not only what he wins. Suarez won jack shit and still he doesn't get the shit Ibra gets. It's about the overall contributions, and while he did have a few stinkers, people overreact a tiny bit about Ibra not performing in big games.

we'll never come to the bottom of this, I'm sorry I've started this idiotic debate yet again

edit: although I have to admit, if Ibra was as decisive as many times as Messi, then I'd call him the best striker ever. But he is not. It's just how it is in football and we are blessed to see so many talented individuals in the game football today, and Ibra is surely one of the best strikers today.

When he scored 2 goals against us in our derby, then Milito turned god and scored hattrick. :yao:

Its fairly debatable tbh, both aren't known for their big game performances, besides, their stats are quite similar. However, suarez plays for a much weaker side in liverpool and ibra has had the benefit of playing for the biggest clubs in the world during his career and is still going strong at PSG.

-playing for Juve when they allegedly cheated.
-playing for Inter with not that great of a team (like Milito had in 2010). With the sale of Ibra (and Maxwell and co.), our first team was half different, allow me this hypothesis, it could be that Ibra would be even better for us if he had Eto'o, Sneijder and Motta playing with him like Milito did.
-playing for a godly Barcelona, did okay, I guess, scored the winner in his first el clasico while being injured, but the Pep vs. Ibra drama is what makes this a big black dot in his career.
-playing for Milan that wasn't as good as it was the years before. They had the same tactic as we did - pass to Ibra, he'll do something.
-playing for a really strong PSG team that is doing good and so is he.

so except in Barcelona, he was usually the best performer in his club, but to me, that Italian trio when Ibra was there wasn't really all that. I know you probably meant biggest as in their status, but so is Liverpool.

Age comes into this, too. Suarez's 31 in 37 goal haul last season was simply incredible - a feat Ibrahimovic didnt manage to match until he was already 31. That's one of the reasons why Suarez has been worth more.

Also remember he's been playing in substantially weaker teams - indeed not even competing in the CL...

I think Suarez is an unbelievably good striker, but I'd want to see him perform at a comparable level at somewhere like Barca before I say he's as good as the absolute best in the world. Suarez has had a little bit of a hard time in the bigger matches, this is true, but then so have Liverpool in general.

I think Suarez - testing pending - could be one of the best in world football at the moment.

Like I said at the start, too, dont forget age. If Ibra was doing what he's doing now, say, 6 years ago, it might be a completely different story. But he's left it a little too late imho. If he was playing like he is now in 07, 08 when he was at Inter after a season or two, we'd all have very different perspectives. But hitting your 'peak' at 29/30 is a bit late to go on and assert yourself imho.


And, yeah, how you compare him to Eto'o (for example) is beyond me. Ibra's got more technical skill, no doubt, and a bigger personality, but Eto'o's track record of delivery speaks for itself.... It's not how you score the goals that matters, its when and how many. Give me a mofo that scores a poachers goal in every important match over someone like Ibra who scores 50 a season against weak teams any day.

That's why Milito was so crucial for us in the treble season. A goal in every knock out stage of the CL, and the goals to win the Coppa Italia, CL, AND Serie A.

agreed. nice post. i think suarez could potentially have been a GOAT contender had he played for a team competing in UCl regularly over the past 5 years or so. He is freakishly good. Reagrding ibra vs etoo, from my perspective i find etoo to be the better team player and conversely, ibra is better as an individual talent. A team player who wins you important ties would certainly be accorded more praise, so i would say etoo is slightly superior.

Great player but is he better than etoo or a prime henry? Debatable, i personally dont think so but i know many will disagree

Eto'o and Henry at their best were much better players than Ibrahimovic will ever be.


And, yeah, how you compare him to Eto'o (for example) is beyond me. Ibra's got more technical skill, no doubt, and a bigger personality, but Eto'o's track record of delivery speaks for itself.... It's not how you score the goals that matters, its when and how many. Give me a mofo that scores a poachers goal in every important match over someone like Ibra who scores 50 a season against weak teams any day.

Eto'o in his prime less skilled than Ibrahimovic? Nah.
If you go and watch Eto'o's (2010/2011) and Ibra's (2011/2012) best season in Italy, you'll see how not only Eto'o scored more, but he also assisted more.
Furthermore, he did all of that while playing wide with Milito/Pazzini upfront, in fact, throughout all his career he showed the world he could play in every postion up front: wide right, wide left, second striker, main striker, as a 10, plus he pushed himself everytime back in his area to take the ball (in two years of Inter I've basically never seen Eto'o in offside, not once).
Ibrahimovic, on the other hand, has only one type of play, and when the rhythm of a match rises he gets always upstaged, letting his mono-type of game play team to sink; yeah, he obviously has great skills and technique, but doing backheels at mid air isn't the only type of "skill", indeed what I wrote before about Eto'o are skills as well, and much more important ones I'd say.
Obviously, from 2011 Eto'o basically retired for the huge money, while Ibrahimovic is still at top and he is better now (props for that, no doubt), but to match (nevertheless to top) what Eto'o has done from 2003 to 2011 even 6 years of 40+ gol in a ridicolous league (the French one), in a team worth 10 times the others, wouldn't still be enough.
Also, Ibra bigger personality than Eto'o? That's hilarious: personality is not how much flat-track bully you are, personality is to have the balls to do the right thing when it really matters, and, in that, Eto'o >>>> Ibrahimovic.

Finally: I didn't quote that part, but what exactly has Milito to do with Eto'o? They aren't even in the same category.

Last season he flopped badly against Chelsea, meanwhile Lavezzi looked like best player ever :yao:

Flopped against Chelsea? Was subbed by the 60th minute due to a muscular injury. In the first he was decent. If you don't score or direct assist, that doesn't mean you flop. I remember he gave a killer through ball to Lavezzi in the first half and he was through on the left flank.

Eto'o and Henry at their best were much better players than Ibrahimovic will ever be.



Eto'o in his prime less skilled than Ibrahimovic? Nah.
If you go and watch Eto'o's (2010/2011) and Ibra's (2011/2012) best season in Italy, you'll see how not only Eto'o scored more, but he also assisted more.
Furthermore, he did all of that while playing wide with Milito/Pazzini upfront, in fact, throughout all his career he showed the world he could play in every postion up front: wide right, wide left, second striker, main striker, as a 10, plus he pushed himself everytime back in his area to take the ball (in two years of Inter I've basically never seen Eto'o in offside, not once).
Ibrahimovic, on the other hand, has only one type of play, and when the rhythm of a match rises he gets always upstaged, letting his mono-type of game play team to sink; yeah, he obviously has great skills and technique, but doing backheels at mid air isn't the only type of "skill", indeed what I wrote before about Eto'o are skills as well, and much more important ones I'd say.
Obviously, from 2011 Eto'o basically retired for the huge money, while Ibrahimovic is still at top and he is better now (props for that, no doubt), but to match (nevertheless to top) what Eto'o has done from 2003 to 2011 even 6 years of 40+ gol in a ridicolous league (the French one), in a team worth 10 times the others, wouldn't still be enough.
Also, Ibra bigger personality than Eto'o? That's hilarious: personality is not how much flat-track bully you are, personality is to have the balls to do the right thing when it really matters, and, in that, Eto'o >>>> Ibrahimovic.

Finally: I didn't quote that part, but what exactly has Milito to do with Eto'o? They aren't even in the same category.

I'm talking about purely technical skill. Eto'o doesnt have the technical flair that Ibra does, but Eto'o is clearly a much better player and a much more complete one too.

I mention Milito because his performance in the treble season alone is everything that Ibra couldnt do for us.

Milito in his treble season blew everyone else. Who the fuck can score all decisive goals in all 3 final and most important matches? And 33 years old in-form Milito managed to score ~20 goals in half of the season. He was underrated because he didn't play for any big clubs before us.

IMO his overall performance in his career deserve a golden ball.I know the golden ball is an annual prize given to a player with brilliant achievements and performance in a particular year but when you look at the quality and brilliance of players like Zlatan and Henry they really deserve to have the biggest individual prize of football world in their collection.However Zlatan,Henry,Maldini and etc remain great players in the history of football with or without Golden Ball.

09 Aug 14, 10:39
henry was the best player in a legendary arsenal side, one of the best in recent history in the premiership, in what was then the hardest league in the world without a doubt.

maldini had an impressive 5 champions league victories to his name, and is probably one of the greatest defenders ever to play the game...

please dont lump them in with ibra.

El Matador
09 Aug 14, 11:46
Yeah, Henry was great. for me Henry is one of the top 5 strikers to ever play the game. The same goes for Maldini in defense. but cmon..? don't lump them in with ibra?

You're out of your mind if you think he doesn't merit that. I think Henry and Maldini both deserved to win the Ballon D'or atleast once. But if you're saying a guy who's won 11 out of 13 leagues in the past 13 years doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same breath you're crazy. Even henry couldn't maintain the average goals ibra bangs every year on a consistent basis. In Maldini's case it's harder to win the Ballon D'or since it's usually given to the most decisive player that year, a defender has a hard time doing that. In Henry's case i'd say it's more about luck than decisiveness. He's just like Iniesta, it still shocks me to see iniesta not winning the ballon d'or atleast once, but that's down to the fact he's playing in the same era as messi and ronaldo. Just like Henry played when Ronaldinho was at his peak.

Ibra's deliberately played in weaker leagues his whole career. The one time he played in a top league, he was shipped out for a 40 million euro loss after one season.

Ibra didn't really hit his current form until, what, 2011? If he was a few years younger when he played at this level, it'd be a bit of a different story.

Also, the ballon d'or is heavily weighted towards 'big match performances' - look at Cannavaro in 06 for example. thats another reason why ibra would never win it

if you think Serie A was 'strong' after Calciopoli, then this conversation is a complete waste of time because I don't argue with people who are delusional.

Ibra moved to Juve in 2004. That was the year Milan lost the CL to Liverpool.

Let's keep a running tally:
2004-2005

And that Italian team? Milan, every time.

So to say that is 'regularly making the CL Semi/final' I think is completely wrong. One team did it, and it wasn't the one he played for.


The Italian league has been failing since its heyday of the mid-90s, its best players have all left (look at Crespo, Veron, etc) and that was *BEFORE* Calciopoli. When that kicked into effect it was a complete fucking disgrace. We won the leagues with basically no technical skill just relying on brute force in midfield, which is why we struggled so much in Europe.

If you think Italy's league wasnt weak then, then I love the propaganda you are receiving - must be some real North Korean shit.

Ancelotti was always the Champions League specialist, no one is going to dispute that. But in his time at Milan, he underperformed in the league...

Yeah, Ibra went to Juve before calciopoli. When Serie A was ALREADY on the downfall. Serie A has been getting worse and worse year after year since like 1998 or 2000. It's international cover decreased and this is the fundamental root cause of the mess that we find ourselves in now, STILL.

The 90s was Serie A's glory days, not the 00s, and definitely not now.

The year Zlatan went to Juve is the same year Chelsea hired Mourinho, and they had players like Robben, Drogba, Lampard, Terry all playing well. When Arsenal had Henry, Pires, etc.

lol dude. The arguement was: Zlatan Ibrahimovic deliberately goes to weaker leagues. I didn't exactly say Serie A's glory days were the 00s, I said that it was still strong as fuck. Ibrahimovic didn't predict the calciopoli will happen and that we'd end up going from fucking Adriano Cambiasso Zanetti to Palacio, Kuzmanovic, Schelotto. He didn't predict that Milan will go from Pirlo, Seedorf, Kaka to Montolivo, De Jong, Muntari. The fact is he moved to a league that was hella strong he played along side the best of the best. He went to a team that had Del Piero and Trezeguet and still managed to hold his own.

And the fact still remains, any team on the planet would easily start Ibra.

Fine, Ibrahimovic deliberately goes to weaker leagues is wrong, that's a fair point. But it doesn't get round the fact that MOST of his career he HAS been playing at weaker leagues.

And, no, I dont agree with your fact. Barca got rid of him. No one in England has even TRIED to sign him afaik, Real didnt want him, and to be honest, Inter were happy to get rid of him.



Browha your talking out of ya ares again. Are you trying to say players like lampard are on a other level to zlatan?

No, but the Premiership's star power around the Mourinho time was simply WAY higher than Italy. The best Italy had to offer was Kaka (great, albeit), aging players like Maldini, Trezegeut and Del Piero, and someone like a shadow of Adriano. Serie A has fallen a long way since its hey-dey in the 90s.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has joked that he should receive a 40-match ban for his alleged elbow on David Alaba during Sweden's Euro 2016 qualifier with Austria in Vienna on Monday night.

The home players were furious when the Paris Saint-Germain striker escaped a red card for catching the versatile Bayern Munich midfielder in the face with his right arm.

However, Zlatan, who stands 1.95 metres tall, insisted that it was an accidental collision caused by the difference in height between two players.

“He [Alaba] goes into me twice and the third time I try to shield the ball and he [Alaba] is 1.50m or 1.60m tall and then it's clear that he's struck by my elbow," he told reporters after the game.

"But the referee blew for a free-kick so of course he has got the situation under control.

"But if not, I should get a 40-match ban!"

Alaba clearly felt that contact was deliberate, while team-mate Aleksandar Dragovic accused the referee, Pavel Kralovec, of being too afraid of the consequences of dismissing Ibrahimovic.

“It was a red card for me," the defender stated. "The referee was scared of Zlatan."

Ibrahimovic had an eventful 100th appearance for Sweden, as not only did he clash with Alaba, he also set up his country's equaliser, for Erkan Zengin, before later being booked for a late challenge on Martin Harnik.

That elbow was nasty as it actually connected with Alaba's face and was definitely deliberate. You could see him lining his elbow forward and then dragging it straight into his face

Zlatan: “I hope Inter returns to greatness. Mancini is the right man “

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was interviewed by SportMediaset about the game against Inter and meeting with an old friend like Mancini:

“It made me happy to see him again, we haven’t met since the game against Parma. We talked a while and he seems to be feeling well, I’ve let my hair grow to look younger(laughs). He is back at Inter and I hope that he will do good. I hope that Inter will return to the levels they were when I played there and also just after I left. Mancini is the right man to do great things.”

How did you see Inter?

“Good. It was an exhibition game and all the teams are going through tough training sessions. I had gone through two tough sessions. “

Moratti?

“I have great memories from Inter and from Moratti. I had a great relation with him and I hope he and his family are all good. I also hope that Inter returns being great.”

Zlatan has taken such exception to something that Paul Baysse of St Etienne has said to him that he feels the need to find out his name. This could be because he genuinely does not know who Paul Baysse is, or more likely that he’s making the age old provocative suggestion that nobody knows who Paul Baysse is.

Unwilling to indulge in or take any of Zlatan’s nonsense, Baysse reciprocates and checks Zlatan’s shirt name. You’ve probably seen this already in the .gif but have some exposition anyway, just because.

I was so confussed at first when I saw him without his shirt but I'm pretty sure they aren't real (at least not all of them) there is no chance that nobody noted the tattoos... especially the one in the hands.

he's shit and a big game bottler. He's a show pony who works well against weak opposition, but as soon as he comes up against a team where players make even roughly the same order of magnitude of salary, he's a non-entity and completely invisible.

[Disclaimer because I know you fuckers like to get anally retentive - I am not claiming that by being completely invisible, he is completely invisible in EVERY SINGLE BIG GAME HE HAS EVER PLAYED - but rather, if you look at his 'average' big game performance, it is substantially poorer than the average big game performances of similar 'reputation'/salary players]

Zlatan may be a choker in champions league but i still love him. Forever king of serie a. He is like the nedtherlands in football. Always rated as potential favourites to win a major trophy but then they fall short when it matters. However, unlike the dutch, ibra can actually win league titles, he is the ultimate league legend lol.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has apologised for launching into a foul-mouthed rant after PSG's 3-2 Ligue 1 defeat at Bordeaux on Sunday.

Ibrahimovic was angry with referee Lionel Jaffredo, and was seen on French TV saying France did not deserve to have PSG.

But after the outburst prompted French sports minister Patrick Kanner to ask the player to say sorry, the Swede had duly apologised.

After the game, Ibrahimovic said: "I've never seen this in my 15 years in football. Fucking amateur.

"Don't even deserve PSG should be in this country. Fucking too good for all of you."

But in a statement several hours after the game, Ibrahimovic said: "My remarks were not aimed at France or the French people.

"I was talking about football and not something else." http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11820/9761587/zlatan-ibrahimovic-sorry-for-saying-france-doesnt-deserve-psg

Video of it.

What was he mad about?
All Bordeaux goals where valid, and PSG's penalty wasn't a penalty.

The Ligue 1 official channel match highlights of the Bordeaux PSG game. Funny how the commentary is peculiarly formal and defensive. :lol:

"There were suspicions of offside, but replays show the goal was valid" - look at the video again. It's offside.
Re Ibrahimovic's penalty, they said "Ezequiel Lavezzi then went down theatrically in the box under minimal contact from Mariano" as to say PSG were lucky to even get that call. "while the champions once again spurned an opportunity to go top"

This video is embarrassing stuff from the French Football Federation.

The video showed the goal to be onside, if you're talking about the one at 2:16.. Looked like Rabiot and Veratti were playing him onside

Second one Lavezzi did milk it, but the dude stuck his leg out and was a clear penalty though

still, the tone is pretty defensive and unprofessional from a federation.

you're right, its definitely onside.

he's managed to get politicians to comment, albeit after apologizing after the merde country remarks. :lol:
