Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s life has been so outrageous, sometimes you might wonder whether he’s been exaggerating things from time to time.

Some claims sound more believable than others, though, and the tale of Mido threatening the PSG star with scissors was one we had our doubts about.

But another of the Swede’s former teammates has confirmed that, yes, it really happened.

Speaking to Dutch site VoetbalZone, former Ajax and Liverpool star Jari Litmanen described Ibra as “the craziest person I have ever encountered.

“He loved to provoke the press and full of energy, drive and vitality. That is beautiful,” Litmanen added.

“I remember he had an argument with Mido. In the locker room Mido grabbed a pair of scissors and began to threaten Ibrahimovic. As a joke. At least, I hope.”

So there you have it.
