That Zlatan Ibrahimovic guy has done it again.

The Swede has made a nice home for himself in California (and the MLS), but he’s been making as much noise off of the field as he has been on it. In true Zlatan form,  the 37-year-old made a pretty darn bold statement that’s sure to catch the attention of hockey fans.

Not soccer fans, hockey fans.



What sport would #Zlatan not be the best in the world at 🤣? . (Photoshopped via: @lakings)

As it turns out, Ibra almost went with skates instead of cleats as a kid. Zlatan said it was too expensive at the time, but that clearly won’t be an issue if his kids want to start playing (his net worth is $190 million)!

Think this was Zlatan’s first bold claim since shifting over to North America? Think again. He went as far as claiming he could become the next president of the United States. For crying out loud dude!


Well, at least he’s getting it done on the pitch…
