[VIDEO PICK: An Ibra-View] Zlatan Ibrahimovic sat down for a fascinating interview with CNN on the eve of Paris St. Germain’s Champions League showdown in Barcelona. The enigmatic Swedish striker candidly discussing his time at the Camp Nou, Pep Guardiola, Lionel Messi, and how David Beckham's arrival altered scooter traffic in Paris.

One thing the 31-year-old Ibrahimovic’s critics and fans will agree upon, Zlatan is rarely boring. Some quotes.

“When you have my confidence, I will do 200% for you. When you don't have my confidence ..." he trails off.

On Paris, “But since the day, I came here it's been totally stressful. Everybody is chasing me with their scooters; I don't even walk in the streets.”

"When David (Beckham) came, he got more of the media attraction, so that's good ..."

Ibrahimovic had a goal and an assist in the first leg. Some said the 6-foot-5 martial arts aficionado was offside on his goal, but there are no reports of anyone saying it to his face ...

    Excellent striker and rarely boring! Nevertheless, definitely looked offsides on replays on his goal vs Barca. But that's life...Se la vi (or something like that) TODAY is the day!! Looking forward to it. And wish the officials all the best! It's a challenging assignment which good referees should be very happy to receive.

    Oguchi Onyewu would say it to his face.
