Cape Town - Zlatan Ibrahimovic has ruled out moving to England and spoken about how close he came to joining Arsenal in 2001.
The Guardian report that Ibrahimovic is more than happy to stay in Paris with Ligue 1 club Paris St. Germain.
“No. I am happy in Paris." replied the Swedish international, when asked if he will ever make the move to the English Premiership.
"I respect the Premier League. It’s one of the best in the world and no other league has this media interest.
"But I’m happy I’ve played in so many different leagues."
Zlatan has played in Spain, Netherlands and Italy and came close to signing for Arsenal 13 years ago but refused Arsène Wenger's request that he first has a trial at the London club.
Wenger says it was a misunderstanding." says "the Zlatan".
"But I didn’t like being asked to prove
“I know I’m good enough. I don’t need to show it to you.
Either you know who I am or you don’t.
"I remember being in Wenger’s office and
you could tell he was the boss. It was Wenger! But I don’t think I was so
close [to signing].
"I went to Ajax the next day.”
Was asking Zlatan to trial at the club another blunder by Arsene Wenger?
