'I planned to shoot Ibrahimovic because of his parking'

Convicted murderer Peter Mangs has revealed in a new book that he intended to open fire on the striker for leaving his car mounted on a pavement

Swedish convicted murderer Peter Mangs has revealed that he planned to shoot Zlatan Ibrahimovic because of the way the striker parked his car.

In a book about his life, Mangs, who was sentenced to life in prison after a string of shootings in Malmo from late 2009 to late 2010, revealed that he was furious when he saw the Paris Saint-Germain striker's red Ferrari illegally parked on a pavement.

The murderer, a known xenophobe, said he became so angry with what he described as "typically Balkan behaviour" that he then went home to retrieve a firearm.

However, when Mangs returned, the Sweden captain's car was gone.

He wrote in his book: "I had no weapon on me but I saw a potential shooting scene. I hurried home to fetch a gun and I had to come back pretty quickly.

“I thought there would be a proper hullabaloo in the media if the gent in question were to be shot."

Mangs is now serving life in prison for two murders and eight attempted murders, while Ibrahimovic has gone on to become a champion multiple times in Netherlands, Italy, Spain and France.
