Zlatan Ibrahimovic isn’t a player who needs others to massage his ego for him, as he does that as successfully as he finds the back of the net and wins league titles. However, his new teammate Paul Pogba has bestowed a Godly new nickname upon the Swedish striker and it’s now only a matter of time before Ibrahimovic demands his own giant hammer to ceremoniously slam into the centre circle at the beginning of every match.
Taking to Twitter to share a Throwback Thursday picture, the world’s most expensive footballer opted to continue the Manchester United love in that he has been immersed in since his £89m return to the club, this week, with a photograph of himself and Zlatan ‘Thor’ Ibrahimovic in LA, earlier this Summer.

To be fair, the name Zlatan already has a Viking God ring to it, so we’re not sure the addition of Thor by Pogba was entirely necessary, but if Ibrahimovic wants to incorporate it onto the back of his match day shirt, you won’t hear us complaining.
