Just saw him interviewed talking about LeBron James AKA "King James" being based in LA now as well. Zlatan apparently tweeted him saying something like "Welcome, now LA has a King as well as as God". The reporter then asked something like who is the bigger star out if the two of them, to which Zlatan simply replies "Throughout history there have been many kings, but there is only one God"

All very tongue in cheek obviously

He knows exactly what he's doing. People who think it's just rampant narcissism don't understand him and his image.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has urged Harry Kane to leave Tottenham if he has any ambition of winning top prizes like league titles or European trophies.

Speaking to Bethard, former Inter, Barcelona and Manchester United striker Ibrahimovic says Spurs star Kane has the potential to play at a level above the North London club.

"When I was in England, I saw him play. I think he is a good striker. He's still developing, he's doing good things.

"But I always say, playing in a big club, performing good is different from playing in... with all respect to Tottenham , a 'normal' club."

Ibrahimovic, 37, a winner of league titles across Italy, Spain, France and the Netherlands, believes the England hotshot can win major honours himself by leaving N17.

"I think he can make it. He just needs to make the move, and people will remember you for what you win.

"So if he wants to win, then yes, I think he needs to change"

Currently winding down a successful career playing for LA Galaxy, the Swede's impressive trophy haul dwarfs that of Kane who has yet to win anything for Mauricio Pochettino's side.

"I think Tottenham has a great team but they are not on the level to win everything, even if they have a fantastic coach."

A serial glory seeker and achiever like him is always going to think that way.

He's still class.

He's kinda right though, we gotta win some fucking titles and/ or cups & get up to elite level, man. It's all thats missing.

It will come in the next 5, i'm sure, and the reflected glory on Kane will be all the sweeter

Why was this even on his radar as a topic of interview discussion? Randomly stirring the pot on behalf of former employers by any chance?

Ohhh, Zlatan is an ambassador for BetHard who are trying to break into the UK betting market. Makes more sense now. Controversial bollocks for cheap PR points.

Yet if you look at his comments on Cristiano Ronaldo in @Gassin's finest post you will see a massive contradiction in what he is saying. (n)

I like Xlatan but I thought this too. That and Zlatan who has played for Ajax, Juventus, United, Barcelona, Ajax, Inter.... he’s hardly played for minnows has he?! As much as I agree with him that joining Juve is basically a gimme for a trophy or two a year.. it’s not like he’s taken his own advice and gone lower league. No matter what you make of MLS.

Hate Zlatan and this aura he's created around himself, he can literally do whatever he wants and most of the reaction will just be 'oh Zlatan, aren't you a character'.
