Ibrahimovic has done so well this season and stats don’t die,he’s scored 35 goals so far this season in 38 matches for the club and 105 goals in 117 games for the Franch champions since arriving in the summer of 2012.Ahead of their quarter final second leg clash against Manchester city,he tells UEFA.com ‘The way I feel today is the best I have ever been.I was born old and I will die young.That is how it looks.”You are as young and fresh as you think you are and that is what I have proved this season, by doing the things I am doing. So the age is just a number.Your head decides how young you are and how old you are. So this year I decided I am very young.I appreciate it [the special moments] because I think everything is in your head. It’s a mental thing”.
