Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he was 'born old' but 'will die young'

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is leaving PSG
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is leaving PSG

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed the secret to his success this season - the PSG striker has put it down to the fact he was "born old" but that he will "die young".

The veteran striker has scored 39 goals in 42 appearances this season and will be looking to add to that tally when the French giants take on Manchester City at the Etihad in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.

The Champions League is one trophy that has eluded Ibrahimovic in his glittering career but with the Swedish striker in the form of his life, he is confident of ticking that box off before he is liking to sign off in France.

Ibrahimovic, who is out of contract in the summer, said: "I have never been better. The way I feel today is the best I have ever been. I was born old and I will die young. That is how it looks.

"I appreciate it [the special moments] because I think everything is in your head. It's a mental thing.

"You are as young and fresh as you think you are and that is what I have proved this season, by doing the things I am doing. So the age is just a number.

"Your head decides how young you are and how old you are. So this year I decided I am very young."

The 34-year-old has been part of PSG's three failed attempts to creep past the quarter-final stages of the Champions League over the past three seasons but says he still lives for the big nights.

"I play for trophies - whatever trophy I can win, I will do everything in my power, in my sacrifice, to win it. Absolutely," he said.

"So if we can win it, we want to win it. The players on the pitch want to win everything. That's why we are here, to train, to focus, to prepare and to do it. So let's see.

"Every time [the aim has been] to go further, but so far we haven't gone further. You can always wish, but you need to [put in the performances] in the two games you play.

"We are a better team this season. And we have more experience this season, so the club – no, not the club, but the new team, let's say, that was reborn a couple of years ago – is more used to the quarter-finals."
