Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the ageless striker, on being hated and what comes next: 'I'm a little bit panicking'

Fear is not a word you associate with Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Not unless you happen to be a defender marking him in the box.

(Don't worry, during the interview he also says "You can call me God," which reassures you that you are indeed speaking to Zlatan and not some Millennial doppelganger.)
