Zlatan: I don’t need trophy to know I’m the best

Ever the model of modesty, Paris Saint-Germain talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic continued his unrivaled track record of humility after PSG’s  2-1 win against Olympiakos.

It’s trophy season, and despite his awesomeness, Ibra isn’t expected to be a finalist for the Ballon d’Or. But that doesn’t matter to Zlatan, as seen in the video above.

Zlatan even managed to get a bit of a rib in on his contemporaries, saying:

No, it’s nothing that I think about. It seems very important for other players, but for me it’s not important. I know what I feel about myself and I know what I think about myself. … I don’t need a trophy to tell myself that I’m the best.

Boom! Another day, another slice of humble pie served up by Zlatan. You’ve got to love him.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic calls Sacha Kljestan’s mustache ‘ugly’

Poor Sacha Kljestan.

Despite his team, Anderlecht, securing a surprising 1-1 draw against PSG on Thursday, it appears the American international still wound up taking one on the chin. Or in this case, the upper lip.

On-pitch trash talk is nothing new, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic bagging on Kljestan for his mustache is too good to pass up.

Ibra, — likely frustrated by his inability score four goals again — took out his aggravation on Kljestan.

Per Het Nieuwsblad, Kljestan claims Zlatan “told me I have an ugly mustache.” Now, not one to lay down, Kljestan offered this retort: “I told him he has a long nose!”

What witticism from both parties! No telling if either side stuck their tongue out or thumbed their nose. At least the mustachioed Kljestan kept it above the belt, unlike Joey Barton:

And there you have it. It can always get more immature.

Norwegian 8th Division club’s tempting offer to David Beckham

Hey you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take right?

Let’s have a round of applause for Orn Kristiania, the perhaps least recognizable club on the planet, for its downright hilarious contract offer to David Beckham during this transfer window.

After reviewing the letter, how Becks could possibly choose Paris over Kristiania is beyond me. I mean listen, anytime you can secure a single Kristiania coat button you have to do it.
