Zlatan Ibrahimovic wants Sylvester Stallone to play him in action movie
Friday July 24th, 2015

PSG forward Zlatan Imbrahimovic is already known as one of the more colorful characters on the soccer field. One day, he could be known as one of the more colorful characters on the big screen.

Speaking with SI Now's Maggie Gray, Ibrahimovic said if a movie were ever to be made about the Paris Saint-Germain star, he would want Sylverster Stallone to play himself, preferably in an action role. 

Stallone, of course, is no stranger to playing action heroes or athletes on the big screen, starring in the Rocky franchise as a boxing legend. He has also starred in a host of other high-octane action flicks. 

You can watch the first part of Ibrahimovic's wide-ranging conversation with Maggie Gray above. The second part of Ibrahimovic's interview will air on Monday on SI Now.
