Video: Zlatan Ibrahimovic Says He Doesn’t Compare Himself to Mere Humans

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has refused to compare himself to other Premier League forwards – because a ‘lion’ like him doesn’t compare himself with humans.

The Swedish superstar has enjoyed a brilliant debut season in English football, where he has scored 26 goals in all competitions so far – and looks likely to add at least a few more to that tally before the end of the campaign.

As you’ll probably be aware, Zlatan is always good for a quote or two, and during an interview with BT Sport before United’s match with Everton tonight, the 35-year-old didn’t disappoint us.

Asked who he considered to be the best striker in England’s top-flight, Zlatan considered Lukaku and Aguero, before revealing why he doesn’t include himself on the list:

Ah Zlatan. Never change, never change.

But what do you make of his assertion? Is Zlatan really above comparison with the likes of Lukaku, Aguero and Harry Kane?
