Zlatan Ibrahimovic's Best XI includes himself, 'the god,' of course


Paris Saint-Germain put a camera in front of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and asked him to name the Best XI he has ever played with. Considering he has been at Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan and PSG, where he won the league 11 times, it was bound to be one hell of a team. And it was.

But what made it the best team ever? The No. 9 did, because Zlatan named himself to it. And then called himself "the god."

To review:

Buffon; Thuram, Silva, Cannavaro, Maxwell; Iniesta, Viera, Cannavaro, Nedved; Messi, The God.

Zlatan is right. He would be the No. 9 and he is a god. He is forever perfect.

But just consider the players he had to leave out of his Best XI:

- Javier Zanetti
- Luis Figo
- Thierry Henry
- Dani Alves
- Alessandro del Piero 
- Carles Puyol
- Clarence Seedorf
- Diego Milito
- Filippo Inzaghi
- Eric Abidal
- Yaya Toure 
- Julio Cesar
- Alessandro Nesta
- Hernan Crespo
- Javier Mascherano
- Marco Materazzi
- David Villa
- Wesley Sneijder
- Gennaro Gattuso
- Rafael van der Vaart
- Gerard Pique
- Leonardo Bonucci
- Ricardo Quaresma
- David Trezeguet
- Gianluca Zambrotta
- Edinson Cavani
- Giorgio Chiellini
- David Luiz
- Mark van Bommel
- Emerson

So yeah, he's played with some pretty good players. Quality worthy of a god.
