From the man who bought you “Dare to Zlatan,” plus said “watching a World Cup without me isn’t worth watching” and often speaks about himself in the third-person, the Swedish international striker, 34, has pulled out another gem.

Ibrahimovic recently became Paris Saint-Germain’s all-time leading goalscorer as he scored twice against Marseille to take his tally to 110 goals in 135 games for Les Parisiens.

Speaking to PSG’s website ahead of Ligue 1 restarting following the international break, Zlatan talked about the achievement and was then asked about turning 34 a few weeks ago.

His answer was priceless.

“I think I’m still improving, even if I’m getting older,” Ibrahimovic said. “I’m still here, doing what I know how to do and doing it better and better.”

“I’m like wine — I get better with age. I don’t feel like I’m getting old — quite the opposite.”I’m stronger and stronger mentally. I’m still hungry and that will help me keep reaching my goals.”

After all, there is a reason we have a complete section dedicated to the Swede.
