Zlatan Ibrahimovic: Great Goals Retold
"For one of the goals, I received the ball with a defender on my back. Another tried to challenge me but I kept the ball from both. Then I turned and saw the goal. I was going towards the goal dribbling past players – bam, bam, bam – as I searched for a moment to shoot. It did not come so I kept on, going past different players. Then I was past the goalkeeper. I decided to go backwards to get a better angle to score.
"I went past the same player again. I used to play with him, but didn’t realise it. He said to me: ‘Zlatan, I thought we were friends.’ I apologised because I didn’t realise it was a former team-mate. It was my best goal.
"Van der Vaart? His reaction was his problem. I did not care. The next day I signed for Juve."
