UNSEEN: Zlatan Ibrahimovic Acts As Bellboy In 2002 TV SkitPosted: December 2, 2015
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is one of the best strikers in the world, winning league title after league title for the past fifteen or so years all across Europe. Back in 2002, the 20-year-old wonderkid, then of Ajax, was also a regular for the Swedish national team, who starred in this amusing little skit at the Swedish Football Awards.
The video shows Ibra scoring a headed goal against Hungary, and getting knocked unconscious by the onrushing goalkeeper. Zlatan then wakes up from his dream in his ‘real-world’ life as a bellboy in a fancy hotel convinced he is a football star.
“Are you okay, Zlatan? You fell down the stairs,” the hotel manager asks him.
“I’m a professional footballer. I play for Ajax and the Swedish national team. Look, I’m number 9!” the striker responds, pointing to the team photo on the wall.
“Number 9 is Peppe Eng,” the manager tells him.
