Zlatan Ibrahimovic expressed his displeasure on Monday at being ranked second place after tennis legend Bjorn Borg on a Swedish daily newspaper’s list of the 150 top Swedish athletes.
''Thank you, but to finish in second place is finishing last,'' Ibrahimovic told Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter, which congratulated him for coming in second place.
Paris Saint-German star Ibrahimovic, was ranked second after five-time Wimbledon champion Bjorn Borg on the newspaper’s list, presented on Tuesday, of the top 150 Swedish Athletes.
The 33-year-old Bosnian striker, who was raised in Sweden, told Dagens Nyheter that Bjorn Borg is "a cool person" and "a living legend."
The newspaper asked Ibrahimovic how he would rank the top athletes in Sweden.
''I’m no 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 on that list, with due respect to the others,'' he said.
