In the latest addition of British magazine FourFourTwo, Marco Verratti has told readers of a time when Zlatan Ibrahimovic compared himself to Jesus in order to settle the nerves of his teammates and manager before a crunch match against Lyon!
Verratti says: “Before winning the 2012-13 league title, we were getting ready to play against Lyon. Carlo Ancelotti was a bit tense, so Ibra approached him and asked him if he believed in Jesus. Ancelotti said yes, so Ibra told him: ‘Good, so you believe in me. You can relax!'”
