But to suggest that he was remotely as good at Ajax as he is now is ridiculous. I really don't believe you were around watching Ibra in those days, sorry.
I never watched Ajax regularly in those days but I watched their CL games and most of their Dutch league highlights. To me a young Zlatan without this inflated sense of himself is better than this self claimed living legend, not saying he was modest back then though.
PS: You are making my initial post all about his Ajax days while I primarily meant his days after he moved to Italy to mature and refine his game.
