The jury noted his “decisive” role in the play-offs a year ago against rivals Denmark that secured a place for Sweden at the 2016 Euro finals, his contributions for Paris Saint-Germain’s French league title and his recent move to Manchester United.
The 35-year-old said that he “now had a full team. It feels surreal.”
At the gala it was also disclosed that a statue of Ibrahimovic will be erected next year outside the national football arena, where he became Sweden’s all-time goalscorer there in 2014.
He retired from international football after the Euro finals in June, scoring 62 goals in 116 appearances.
Ibrahimovic received a small replica of the statue, and said: “The guy from [the Malmo district] Rosengard gets his own statue in the Swedish capital. You usually get one when you pass away, but I feel alive.”
