Manchester United’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic will have a statue erected in his honour after being named Sweden’s top player for a 10th successive year, the BBC reports.
The 36-year-old striker received his ‘Guldbollen’ – Golden Ball – award on Monday at a ceremony in Stockholm.
The statue will go outside Stockholm’s Friends Arena, where Ibrahimovic scored four goals against England in 2012.
Ibrahimovic said: “It’s huge for me. Most people do not get a statue until they have passed away.”
The Swede has won the award every year since 2007 – and also came top in 2005 before losing out to Arsenal midfielder Freddie Ljungberg a year later.
Ibrahimovic retired from international football after Euro 2016. He scored 62 goals in 116 games for Sweden and has won the domestic league title in four different countries.
