Zlatan Ibrahimovic suggests replacing Eiffel Tower with a statue of himself
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is Zlatan Ibrahimovic's No. 1 fan. If Zlatan was to have a true love, you would have to imagine his soulmate is Zlatan. Or soccer, but mainly himself.
Now, Ibrahimovic would love to see the people of France, where he plays for French Ligue 1 giant Paris Saint-Germain, admire him in larger than life form.
The Swede was recently honored at Musée Grévin in Paris with a wax figure of himself.
With Ibrahimovic becoming only the second soccer player to be honored with a waxwork in the museum -- Brazilian legend Pele was the first -- he has even bigger goals. If Ibra would get his way, there would be no more Eiffel Tower.
“It’s a big honour to have a statue in a great museum like the Grévin. I am very happy with it. The people can get really close to the statue and that was the objective,” Ibrahimovic told RMC, via The Guardian. “The next step? I don’t know … Maybe replacing the Eiffel Tower with an Ibrahimovic statue.
“It’s an incredible feeling to get a statue at the Musée Grévin. The statue looks very focused, just like myself out there on the pitch. I can only be grateful for the fantastic job done. I am very proud to get this sort of recognition, especially as a Swede.”
Ibrahimovic has 16 goals this season for PSG, which currently sits in third place behind Lyon and Marseille. PSG is just two points behind the top spot on the table.
