Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed his admiration for Bundesliga and on six-time European champions Bayern Munich in particular.
Ibrahimovic has tried almost every major European league having played for Malmo, Ajax, Inter, Juventus, Barcelona, Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United in his illustrious career, but at the moment he is yet to play in the Bundesliga.
The Milan striker spoke to German newspaper Bild about the German league and admitted that the idea of joining a club like Bayern Munich has appealed to him in the past, and also took his time to talk about the famed Ballon d’Or prize.
He said (via MilanNews):
I was curious about the Bundesliga. You have a team like Bayern Munich, an incredible club. Every time I played against them you could see the facilities, the stadium, the organisation. The history of the club is quite impressive.
In addition to having a wide range of experiences within football, the 40-year-old Swede has won almost every major trophy there is to win but he is yet to conquer the Ballon d’Or, having shared the spotlight with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. However, the Swede appears not-so-keen on the ‘political’ nature of the prize.
These prizes are political. They want Mr. Perfect. If you talk and say what you want, you don’t get these kinds of prizes. It’s easy to give them to someone who is Mr. Nice Guy. Nothing changes for me. It doesn’t makes me better or worse.
The Swedish icon is expected is stay in Milan for at least another season under certain conditions that will presumably include a downgraded wage package.
