Zlatan: I Don’t Care About Ballon d’Or Snub

Paris Saint-Germain star, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, has revealed he doesn’t care about being snubbed for the FIFA Ballon d’Or so far.

The 32-year-old striker has won many club trophies and personal accolades, but has never been named as the best individual player.

However, Ibrahimovic insists the FIFA voting is not only based on player performances and also has a lot of ‘politics’ around it.

“I think it’s not only about who is the best,” he told ESPN.

“I think there is a lot of politics around it, the good boy-bad boy thing and all of that.

Ibrahimovic says he is not concerned what the judges are thinking about him, and instead wants to be remembered for his great goals.

“For me what’s important is what I think and what people around me think. What the judges (of the Ballon d’Or) think is not important for me," he added.

“I am sure people will remember those goals for a long time and that’s what you want as a player.

“Not all the players will be like that. Everybody tries to score a great goal and I am lucky I have netted a few.”

The Sweden striker won the 2013 FIFA Puskas Award for his bicycle kick against England last year.
