In the latest edition, Zlatan grills a woman from Finland, Nicole, first asking her to sell him on the product. Despite the surprise of having the PSG talisman sitting mere feet from her, she kicks into sales mode and does an admirable job.

Much to Ibrahimovic’s astonishment the applicant doesn’t say Zlatan! (We’re assuming she names Lionel Messi). As is the natural follow-up question, Zlatan then asks her opinion on who could only be Cristiano Ronaldo.
Her response is quite savage. "No! He’s a damn actor. He falls down for nothing," she begins as she launches the attack, "the hair is always perfect and a lot of gel and …" But Ibrahimovic cuts her off before she can say anything too over the top.
