Zlatan Ibrahimovic joy at 'dream' PSG Champions League draw vs. Malmo
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has described Paris Saint-Germain's Champions League group stage draw with his hometown club Malmo as "the best that could happen."
Ibrahimovic, 33, started his professional career in 1999 when he made his senior debut with Malmo, the city in which he grew up, after coming through the club's youth ranks.
He has since played in the Netherlands, Spain and Italy before moving to PSG in 2012, but has kept close ties with the city where he grew up.

Though PSG's squad contains a number of stars, it will be Ibrahimovic who will pack out the Swedbank Stadium when he appears there with the French champions in the Group A game on Nov. 25.
"The best that could happen," Ibrahimovic posted on his Facebook page along with a photo of the bridge that links Malmo to Denmark.
"I have experienced a lot during my football career and this will be one of those moments too. It's a dream to play the Champions League in Malmo.
"Too bad that all of Malmo won't fit in the stadium but I guarantee that the stadium will be heard all over Malmo. I'm on my way."
