There are few men in football as capable of producing an instant soundbite as Jurgen Klopp and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, so, when the two met at Monday's Ballon d'Or gala, it was no surprise that there were a few memorable quotes.
After a hearty embrace, the Paris Saint-Germain star asked when Klopp was going to bring him to Borussia Dortmund to which the 46-year-old replied: "I have to sell my whole team".
