Expekt.com now pays 50 times the money on Zlatan Ibrahimovic to win the Golden Boot in Spain – and bookie Paul Gran has pledged to walk a distance of 27.3 km, which, following a south-east to north-east lineation, is the longest uninterrupted distance possible on the tiny island of Malta, should Ibrahimovic triumph.
- Sorry Zlatan, you have no chance to become the top scorer, but if you do I will do this walk in burning heat this summer, says Paul.
Expekt.com paid 12.00 in odds before La Liga started on Ibrahimovic to become top scorer in Spain, and before Christmas, when the Swedish striker was on fire, the odds was down to 3.50.
Now Zlatan has been suspended and out of form and we pay a massive 50 times the money. Messi is huge favorite at 1.35 ahead of Higuain, David Villa and Ronaldo, says Paul Gran, veteran bookie at Malta based Expekt.com since nine years and once winner of Norwegian Jeopardy.
- I am so sure that Zlatan will not win this title that I promise to walk the longest distance in Malta from the south-east to the north-west, which is 27.3 km, in burning heat this summer if he does. It will be tough and not pretty, and maybe Zlatan can offer me some drinks on the way if it would happen.
Zlatan is on 12 goals and is distanced by Messi, who is leading the pack with 22 goals so far.
