Guess who the best player in Italy is?
Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is now also one of the best players in Spain.
He topped the table in the annual Calcio players association vote, commonly thought of as the Italian Oscars. He also won the best foreign player award.
“I miss Italy. I learnt so much in five years and won lots. But now I am enjoying Spain and I love it at Barcelona,” said Ibrahimovic. “Plus the players are smaller, so I can carry them on my back during my exultant goal scoring celebrations. Hooray for me.”
For those who might not remember, Ibrahimovic scored 25 goals at the point of the Inter Milan attack, making his player of the yearness pretty much a foregone conclusion. And now he’s ours. Hooray for us.
