Zlatan slams Ballon d'Or

Thursday, January 29, 2009

Inter Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimović has caused controversy by describing the prestigious Ballon d’Or as a "publicity stunt."

Ibrahimović was amongst the nominees for the 2008 prize, but he did not even come close to winning as Manchester United ace Cristiano Ronaldo scooped the honour.

It seems the decision left a bitter taste in Ibrahimović's mouth as the Swedish ace has now poured scorn on the award.

He told Inter Channel: "Now the Ballon d’Or has become a publicity stunt. It all depends on what people see in order to judge.

"For me it is more important to win with the team rather than anything else."
