Comparing yourself to Indiana Jones is daring to Zlatan

But does he hate snakes?

UEFA Europa League hat trick hero Zlatan Ibrahimovic compared himself to Indiana Jones following Thursday’s 3-0 win over Saint-Etienne.

So while manager Jose Mourinho was not happy with his side’s performance against Saint-Etienne, clearly Ibrahimovic was feeling a bit more jovial. From Sky Sports:

“Every trophy for me is incredible, everywhere I came I won so if I can win something here I will be super happy,” he said.

“People that know me know that I play in many clubs and I try to do my best. Wherever I went I won - so I am like Indiana Jones.”

I also like to imagine that Ibrahimovic has a father or grandfather who is the Scandinavian equivalent of Sean Connery.

Never change, Zlatan.
