Ibrahimovic: "I'm too good to play in the Swedish league"

Zlatan being Zlatan, endearing himself to the Swedish public again, talks about his future with the national team, will he retire after Euro 2016?

Sweden's main man Zlatan cannot stop the controversy. It's almost like he enjoys the attention and watching the press hang on his every word. While refusing to comment on speculation that he's going to announce his international retirement after Euro 2016, he couldn't resist a little dig at Sweden's professional league:

"It's not something I've thought about, it's not something I've spent energy on. I haven't discussed it with anyone," he said. "I'm here to play the Euros and prepare myself in the best way possible. It's not something I've thought about".

The Swedish star, who said he feels at the top of his game after his best season at PSG, wasn't revealing anything about his club future either and the rumours circulating about reuniting with Mourinho at Manchester United, despite saying last week that he had made his decision:

"I get excited when I see them because I want to see who is making up the best story. And when I am tired of it, I will let you know where I will go."

Ibrahimovic probably didn't win over any wavering voters in his home country when he answered a question about a potential return to his hometown club Malmo, where he began his career:

"I'm too good for the Swedish league," he said.

Speculation of a return to the league was sparked when Ibra told the crowd at Malmo's Swedbank Stadion on Monday that he would return, having sat out Sweden's friendly against Slovenia because of a sore calf.

"What I meant when I said I'll come back is with the national team," he said. "They'll have to be patient and they'll see me again in the national team shirt."
