Zlatan Ibrahimovic isn’t a Player, sometimes it’s hard to believe he’s human. 36 Years Old and banging in Goals with the agility of a 20-Year-Old and he’s probably more confident than the entire Swedish Population’s belief in themselves.
It’s only Natural to want to know more about the Swedish Legend and your wish is my command. The Swede is Dominating at LA Galaxy at the age of 37 and age is just a number for him. So here are 5 lesser-known Facts about ageless goal machine Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
1. Has a Burger in Paris named after him

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was a fan favorite at Paris St Germain and one Parisian went on to name a Burger after the Swede. A burger named ‘Le Zlatan’ can be found at owner Jean-Philippe Grandin’s Cafe and it contains three different layers of a variety of cheese along with 600 grams of Meat. Sounds like a Heavy Burger but is probably similar to Zlatan’s Personality when it comes to richness. Next time you’re in Paris, grab a Le Zlatan!
