Zlatan Ibrahimovic has responded to critics who have suggested that the Swede was unable to score goals at the start of his career, pointing to the number of 500 goals he has scored in his sensational career.
The Swedish striker reached the 500th goal with an acrobatic goal.
It was the 500th in Ibra’s professional career, during which he played for clubs such as Paris Saint-Germain, Inter,Juventus, Barcelona, Milan, Ajax, Malmo and Manchester United.
Now, the 36-year-old has recalled the time when critics questioned his ability to score goals at the beginning of his career, saying he had proven them wrong.
“I have had the opportunity to play in all the big clubs and the biggest players, and yet to score all these goals,” Ibra said.
“The most ridiculous thing is that when I started my career they said that this player is good but is not able to score goals. Suddenly, I knew how to score goals. I’ve scored 500 – crazy numbers in football, “he added.
