Video: Zlatan Ibrahimovic Had the Perfect Response When Asked If He’d Play NFL

I think we all know by now that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a man who doesn’t lack confidence when he’s on a football field, but it turns out his self-belief also extends to American Football, too.

The Swedish superstar has defied critics to prove himself as Manchester United’s best player this season, and one of the best players in the English Premier League, despite celebrating his 35th birthday not too long ago.

But could he be prepared to make a bit of a career change once he’s done terrorising English defences? Well, in conversation with ex-New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora recently, Zlatan definitely thinks he’d have what it takes to hold his own State side:

There is no suggestion that Zlatan really is about to take the plunge and join an NFL side, but if he did, we’re in little doubt at all that he really would make sure he could make the difference.

Never change, Zlatan. Never change.
