Zlatan Ibrahimovic is known for a few things. His world class skill as a striker comes to mind, as does his signature “Man Bun”, but more than anything else people likely think of his ego.
The guy LOVES himself.
He met one of those fans in a very unorthodox way on Friday night when a fan sporting a yellow Swedish soccer jersey came running up to the Swedish star. While this would maybe concern most stars, thinking they were going to get attacked, it quickly became obvious that this fan wanted something else. An autograph.
Apparently the bold move earned the fan respect at BC Place, as the Vancouver Whitecaps faithful chanted “Let Him Go!” as the unruly fan was being escorted off the field.
We do not condone this type of behavior, but hey at least no one got hurt and it gave the crowd something to cheer about!
