Obviously, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has always done whatever he’s wanted. The 39-year-old Swedish player has played at many clubs throughout his career. Meaning he’s made many decisions, some of which have been quite surprising!
Arsenal and Wenger made a mistake approaching him. When Zlatan was only 17 he essentially had the opportunity to meet with Arsène Wenger, Arsenal’s coach, to decide his future. But Wenger made a mistake… by offering Ibrahimovic a trial.
“I came to London for a meeting with Wenger, who asked me to do a trial with the Gunners. I told him: ‘I won’t do this trial. Take me or don’t, I’m not here to waste my time’!”
Self-confidence has always been one of Zlatan’s greatest features. And it’s thanks to it that he’s been able to terrorize opposition defenses!
