Are You Brave Enough To Try 'Le Zlatan'?

“A Zlatan burger €29.90! Bon appetit! #Burgerquizz #TeamZlatan #Zlatan #Ibrahimovic.”

According to the Guardian, that’s what PSG and Sweden star, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, tweeted to announce the monster hamburger created in his honour, ‘Le Zlatan’.

Just like Ibra, the R400 burger seems larger than life.

The Guardian says it contains “600 grams of mince beef with onions, bacon and three types of cheese including cheddar, Emmental and Auvergne blue.”

All of that needs to go inside a humungous bun, “specially made for the restaurant”!

The burger was created by Parisian restaurant Doddy's Café, and manager Jean-Philippe Grandin says it more than measures up to Ibra’s personality.

"It's a cheese with taste and character, just like Ibrahimovic," Le Grandin told Le Parisien.

"Only seven people have managed to finish it so far."

Ibra has a cult following wherever he plays thanks to his arrogance and ability, and Doddy’s Café has even referred to a modern cult icon to entice diners to try a taste of ‘Le Zlatan.’

“Not even Chuck Norris could fit it in his mouth!” they boast amusingly.

"I managed to eat more than half of it," restaurant assistant, Kelly, said proudly.

"I'd recommend this burger to everyone. It truly has the strength and power of Zlatan Ibrahimovic."

On a more serious note, Ibra and PSG entertain Portuguese side Benfica in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

And they will be hoping Ibra sluggishly plays as if he is still digesting a monster burger, if they are to stop the enigmatic Swede in his tracks.
