Paris Saint-Germain superstar striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic kick started his club’s 4-0 victory over Bastia with an incredible goal on Saturday in Ligue 1 play.
Accepting an assist from Hervin Ongenda, the Swede flicked the ball over his head with his right heel and zipped it past Bastia goalkeeper Mickael Landreau.
Ibrahimovic and teammate Edison Cavani each notched a brace. It was the fourth and fifth goals of the Ligue 1 season for Ibrahimovic, and to squash any fear PSG fans might have, the player’s agent insisted his client would retire at Parc des Princes, according to recent reports.
The 32-year-old was tied to numerous clubs around Europe this summer, including Chelsea and Manchester City of the Premier League, and Real Madrid in Spain.
The goal was easily his most electrifying of the season. Some could argue the strike was on par with the incredible bicycle kick he executed during Sweden’s 4-2 victory over England in 2012.
