The weight of years has no hold over him.
Whether in the field or in the media sphere, Zlatan Ibrahimovic remains one of a kind.
At 39, the AC Milan striker has kept all his genius and talent.
If he remains one of the best footballers of his time, he is also feared for his punchlines.
In an interview with “Discovery +” in Sweden, Zlatan went against LeBron James with his legendary tact.
“I love LeBron James,” he begins.
But to be honest, I don't like it when people with a certain status are involved in politics in addition to their profession.
Do what you're good at.
Stay in your domain.
I play soccer because that's where I'm the best.
I don't get involved in politics.
If I were a politician, I would.
It's a mistake that a lot of people make, in my opinion, when they get famous and achieve a certain status.
Do things where you are good at.
The message is direct as always.
Here, Zlatan is referring to Chosen One's political commitment to Joe Biden during the last presidential campaign in the United States.

It remains to be seen what LeBron James thinks?
For now, the American giant (2.06 m for 115 kg) has not yet responded to the Swede, with whom he has something in common.
Both lived in Los Angeles.
Him since playing for the Lakers and Zlatan when he was playing at the LA Galaxy.
On the ground, this Thursday, Ibrahimovic was more discreet in the round of 16 of the Europa League.
Entered at the break, Zlatan did not score in the inglorious draw (1-1) against Red Star Belgrade.
A sufficient result, however, for AC Milan to qualify for the round of 16.
