Ibra on Arsenal trial: In my mind I was strongest of all

Manchester United v Everton - Wayne Rooney Testimonial

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic shared his memories about the trial he refused to undergo a trial before a possible move to Arsenal back in 2000.

“I went to London for an appointment with Wenger, who asked me to audition for the Gunners,” the former Sweden international said on Sky Sports Italia show I Signori del Calcio.

“I told him “I will not do a trial: either you take me or not, I’m not here to waste time”.

“I already had that kind of trust, because in my mind I was the strongest of all, even when I was young.

“I met Wenger because I expected him to tell me to start with them right away. But Ibra does not test,” the 36-year-old concluded on the matter.
