Cantona V Ibrahimovic
Man United Premier League Sport

Cantona V Ibrahimovic: Quote battle!

Both talismanic figures, both enigmatic men with prolific scoring records and both mouthy so-and-sos, but which Manchester United forward takes the cake as having the biggest swagger, the biggest ego and the most insane self-image? We thought the only thing to do in comparing the men was ditch all the stats and let the talking do the talking!

Cantona:

I am searching for abstract ways of expressing reality, abstract forms that will enlighten my own mystery.

IBRAHIMOVIC:

We are looking for an apartment in Paris. If we don’t find anything, I’ll probably just buy the hotel.

via GIPHY

CANTONA:

Sometimes you get submerged by emotion. I think it’s very important to express it – which doesn’t necessarily mean hitting someone.

via GIPHY

Ibrahimovic:

I think this is the best season of my career. I think my league form has been more than perfect.

via GIPHY

CANTONA:

My best moment? I have a lot of good moments but the one I prefer is when I kicked the hooligan.

via GIPHY

Ibrahimovic:

Arsene Wenger asked me to have a trial with Arsenal when I was 17. I turned him down. Zlatan doesn’t do auditions.

via GIPHY

CANTONA:

I prefer to play and lose rather than win, because I know in advance I’m going to win.

via GIPHY

Ibrahimovic:

I can’t help but laugh at how perfect I am.

CANTONA:

When the seagulls follow the trawler, it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea.

via GIPHY

Ibrahimovic:

One thing is for sure, a world cup without me is nothing to watch.

via GIPHY

CANTONA:

I don’t need to be involved with a game watched by millions of people to be fulfilled.

via GIPHY

Ibrahimovic:

When you buy me, you are buying a ferrari. If you drive a ferrari you put premium fuel in the tank, you drive onto the motorway and you floor the accelerator. Guardiola filled up with diesel and went for a spin in the countryside. If that’s what we wanted, he should have bought himself a fiat from the start.

via GIPHY

CANTONA:

I know that I have a face, a look, people aren’t used to seeing. A presence.

via GIPHY

IBRAHIMOVIC:

Zlatan: “do you believe in jesus?”
Ancelotti: “yes”
Zlatan: “good, so you believe in me. You can relax.”

via GIPHY

CANTONA:

For me, I don’t like it when there is too much interference in our lives. We’re not children. It is our own life in our hands.

via GIPHY

IBRAHIMOVIC:

Reporter: “who will win the qualifier?” 
Zlatan: “only god knows”
reporter: “it’s kind of hard to ask him”
zlatan: “you’re talking to him”

So there you have it. Who’s Billy Bigger Balls?
