Zlatan loves Stevie G

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been doing his best to simultaneously wind up people from Liverpool and pay tribute to one of the modern game's great players by saying some stuff about Steven Gerrard.

The Liverpool captain will earn his 100th cap tonight for England and Zlatan knows just what a difficult task this is, but also that he sort of wasted his career:
“Every time we play against Steven, the coach always says to be careful because he is the player that makes the difference. 
“But I would like to see Steven in - of course, Liverpool is a big club - but in a big international club. 
“I would like to see it also for England, because it is very exciting when someone goes abroad and shows who he is in another competition. 
"For me, a fantastic player can make a difference in every country wherever he plays.
Now the thing about this is I suppose is that Steven Gerrard has won almost every trophy he possibly could have with Liverpool - the obvious exception being the Premier League.  He also did this with his hometown club, turning down the offers of guaranteed success and money to try and help his beloved club win trophies.  They're worth more that way.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic flies around the world buying hotels and kicking people if they don't agree with him.  He has won lots of league titles.  I think.

I'm not sure what my point is here, I haven't eaten anything all day till now and I've sort of gone in a daze
