What he said:

“The next step? I don’t know … Maybe replacing the Eiffel Tower with an Ibrahimovic statue …”

Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic was in high spirits on becoming only the second soccer player ever to be immortalized in wax by Paris’ Musée Grévin. The Swede said:

“It’s a big honour to have a statue in a great museum like the Grévin. I am very happy with it. The people can get really close to the statue and that was the objective. The next step? I don’t know … Maybe replacing the Eiffel Tower with an Ibrahimovic statue …It’s an incredible feeling to get a statue at the Musée Grévin. The statue looks very focused, just like myself out there on the pitch. I can only be grateful for the fantastic job done. I am very proud to get this sort of recognition, especially as a Swede.”

What he really meant:

“I’m the best thing to happen to Paris since the Eiffel tower.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“A statue of me replacing the Eiffel tower…Wouldn’t that be a soccer?”
