Zlatan gonna Zlatan.
After Sweden beat Italy in a World Cup play off last night, consigning the Italians to miss their first summer finals since 1958, Ibra could not help himself.
The Swedish maverick, and I don’t use that term lightly, immediately tweeted in the most Zlatan way ever.
He made it all about himself.
Despite having retired from international football after the Euros in 2016 and not having played a minute of the World Cup qualifying campaign, Zlatan’s tweet was definitely more about him than the team.
The man with ‘lions don’t compare themselves to humans’ in his Twitter bio does not really do modesty.
With the team now confirmed for the World Cup in Russia next year it seems Ibra is hinting at a possible comeback to international football.
Sweden’s top scorer should be available again for Man United in the new year and a return to his goalscoring form of last season could see Zlatan angling for a place at the World Cup.
However, his latest social media antics have split Swedish opinions on whether the team is better off with or without him.
Ibra is Marmite, but his imagination with the ball and raw presence deserve a final shot at the World Cup.
Then again he might just be congratulating his teammates on a job well done.
