America lucky I didn’t come 10 years ago, would have become President: Ibrahimovic

first_imgZlatan Ibrahimovic has grabbed headlines yet again but not for scoring a spectacular goal, like he usually does, but for his comments, the other thing that he is extremely famous for.The Swedish superstar moved to the Major League Soccer in the United States of America earlier this year and has already taken the league by storm. He currently plays for LA Galaxy – signing a day after Manchester United released him from his contract.Since the move, Ibrahimovic has scored 12 goals in his first 15 games while also providing two assists. The now 36-year-old Ibrahimovic trails the MLS’s leading goal scorer, Atlanta’s Josef Martinez (who has 22) by just 10 goals, having played seven fewer matches.When Ibrahimovic was asked how he has changed America’s football culture, he said, “I don’t know if I have changed, I just keep doing my job. They are lucky I didn’t come 10 years ago because I would have been President today.”While Ibrahimovic’s comment may sound spectacular like he almost always does, it is not possible as only an American citizen or someone born on US soil or an overseas territory of the country can become the President of the United States of America.In an earlier interview with CNN back in 2016, incidentally before Donald Trump became President, Ibrahimovic was asked to finish the sentence: “Donald Trump is…”Ibrahimovic replied with, “I don’t care.”On Monday, Ibrahimovic paid a visit to Manchester United’s pre-season preparations in Los Angeles. He attended the open training session at UCLA and later, while speaking to the reporters, he said he was impressed by what he saw.advertisement”I’ve been watching United train and I see a lot of quality — not quality like me, but it’s okay,” Ibrahimovic posted on Instagram.”Great to see the guys again, and to see them happy. Be ready for this season because something special will happen. The boss has something going on so we’ll keep that a secret.”Good luck and I wish you all the best.”last_img
