Zlatan Ibrahimovic statue 2019

Ibrahimovic returned to the city of his first club Malmo this week where he was honoured with a statue. "You should not believe everything you read on Twitter", she wrote while adding a smiling emoji to go with a retweet of Ibrahimovic's invite to "all the young people from Malmo schools to attend the ceremony!"

In other words, those children will have to wait until their parents take them to see the statue of the local hero - that is if their parents decide it's appropriate a almost 9-foot, 1,100-pound bronze sculpture of a shirtless Ibrahimovic.

The bronze structure, commissioned by the Swedish FA, was unveiled in front of hundreds of fans outside Malmo's stadium on Tuesday.

Swedish Soccer Federation general secretary Hakan Sjostrand, left, and Malmo municipal executive board chair Katrin Stjernfeldt Jammeh unveil a statue of Zlatan Ibrahimovic on October 8. You have players who get statues. If I can, they can. "There are many opportunities there for me but playing in Serie A again would not be a problem as I am better than those who are there", he responded in typical fashion in an interview with Sky Sport 24.

"When you come to NY you have the Statue of Liberty, when you come to Sweden you have the Statue of Zlatan". "When you come to Sweden, you have the Statue of Zlatan".

His contract is up at the end of the year and Ibrahimovic admits he would be open to a return to Italy or another one of the top European leagues.

Ibrahimovic now plays his football in the MLS with LA Galaxy where he has scored 35 times in 46 appearances.
