Beckham conquers Paris and ego-checks Zlatan

There is nothing footballers enjoy more, say those in the know, than exposing their most private detail to teammates.

“Bon Jovi to you tu. How much did you say you made, Zlatan? Awww… Haha. Very cute.”

“Me? Zlatan, they tried to pay me and I wouldn’t hear of it. I said don’t insult me, Mon Sir.”

“We. I mean wee wee. Cesc true. I think they will use my salary instead to feed, clothe and shelter a couple hundred enfants.”

And that’s how you conquer Paris and show Zlatan Ibrahimovic who is boss before even lacing up your boots. N’est pas?
