5. Zlatan Ibrahimović

He is the first player to score for six clubs in the Champions League. The number of and type of goals he had scored is unparalleled. Ibrahimović has scored from distance, through free kicks, headers, overhead kicks, back-heels and a whole lot of techniques that hasn’t been given a name yet. A man of his caliber is surely a match winner. His record at PSG is outstanding, netting 75 goals in just 91 matches. As for the Swedish National team, he’s their one man army.
