Inspired by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the Swedish and AC Milan legend.
Ibra has (at the time of writing) been playing football for 22 years and has scored 565 goals in 954 games. Wow. This guy is already written into annals of football folklore, and at the age of 40 is still going strong.
Having started his career at his hometown club of Malmo FF, Ajax spotted his potential and snapped him up. Three and a bit years and 48 goals later, Zlatan found himself signing up for Italian giants Juventus. Having read his autobiography, it’s safe to say he didn’t quite fit into the Juve machine and, after two years, he moved to Inter Milan, where he really started to make a name for himself on a global scale. From there he moved to Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris St. Germain, Manchester United, LA Galaxy, and then back to AC Milan. What a career.
In terms of team honours, there are far too many to mention them all, but they include Serie A, La Liga, Eredivise, Ligue 1, FIFA Club World Cup, UEFA Super Cup, UEFA Europa League.
He is also:
- the only player to have scored 50 Serie A goals for both AC Milan and Inter
- the only player to have scored on his Premier League, Serie A, La Liga, Ligue 1 and Champions League debuts
- one of only two players (with Cristian Ronaldo) to have scored in every minute of a football match
- the top goalscorer ever for the Swedish national team
Nobody can deny what Zlatan Ibrahimovic has achieved in the game of football, but the trophies, awards and statistics do not do justice to the type of player he is. His goals reel is a much better reflection because the word ‘banger’ was made for Ibra.
This design is inspired by Zlatan’s 30-yard overhead kick against England in 2012. Even though it was against England, this has got to be my favourite goal of his, and would probably top a lot of people’s lists, although with the amount of screamers he’s scored, who knows?
Designed in a style a little bit different to my normal work, this piece is supposed to be a bit more ‘sketchy’ than my usual designs (see the close-up pictures for what I mean). Personally, I think it look’s really good and it may be something that I adopt going forward.
And yes, I did mean to use the words ‘legendary’ and ‘icon’ as two of the words in a three word sentence in the title.
