‘Even Chuck Norris couldn’t fit it in his mouth,’ apparently.
A French restauranteur has created a new burger called ‘Le Zlatan” as a tribute to the Paris Saint Germain striker and has even challenged the man himself to come to the restaurant and finish the mammoth meal, the Guardian reports.
Jean-Philippe Grandin, the manager of Doddy’s Cafe in the Parisian suburb of Boulogne-Billancourt, said he wanted to create “an exceptional burger, which really stands out from the crowd, in the image of Zlatan Ibrahimovic”.
The burger, is a unique sight to behold. Containing 600 grams of mince beef with onions, bacon and three types of cheese including cheddar, Emmental and Auvergne blue, all contained in a giant bun, the giant burger has been created especially for the restaurant .

And anyone looking to take it on should think in a similar vein to those that face the player on a weekly basis by taking extra care as the menu proudly boasting that “even Chuck Norris couldn’t fit it in his mouth”.
And just like the striker, the burger has been slapped with a hefty price tag and will command an astounding €30, and whilst Zlatan has yet to take on the challenge, Grandin hopes to be able to see its namesake stop by for a bite soon.
The inclusion of the strong Auvergne blue cheese is especially significant. “It’s a cheese with taste and character, just like Ibrahimovic,” Grandin told Le Parisien. “Only seven people have managed to finish it so far.”
“I managed to eat more than half of it,” his assistant, Kelly, 29, said. “I’d recommend this burger to everyone. It truly has the strength and power of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.”
