The big forward's statue is seemingly nearing completion and he offered up a little sneak peek

An excited Zlatan Ibrahimovic offered another sneak peek at the statue of him set to be erected in Sweden.

The 2.7-metre statue of the 11-time Swedish footballer of the year is seemingly nearing completion.

City fans amazed at Bravo

It is set to stand outside the Friends Arena in Stockholm to honour Ibrahimovic, who is recovering from a knee injury suffered late in his one and only season at Manchester United.

The former Sweden international scored 28 goals and registered 10 assists in 46 appearances during his season at Old Trafford, leading the Red Devils to the Community Shield, EFL Trophy and Europa League.

The 35-year-old, who previously posted an image of 'the statue of Zlatan' in December, decided to again check in on the statue, posting the head on Instagram.

"The symbol of Sweden is almost done #mystatue #proud #lifework," Ibrahimovic wrote.

He will no doubt be glad it looks a fair bit like him, unlike the bizarre Cristiano Ronaldo statue unveiled earlier this year.
