Zlatan Ibrahimovic: Tricks Are For Kids
Zlatan Ibrahimovic recently had a day out in Barcelona with his son Maximilian.
(We know. The cute. Try to contain your woman parts. We sold most of ours in order to afford to buy these photos.)
We’re not going to discuss Helena’s trifecta of leopard print accessories (below). Because really, they speak for themselves. Let’s talk instead about Zlatan’s recent “incident”.
No matter what players you love or what team you support, watching a footy player get punked off/merked/shamed is always excruciatingly embarrassing and supremely entertaining.
A child wearing an Inter shirt approached Ibrahimovic and held out his hand for him to shake. But as ‘Ibra’ was about to greet the youngster, the little rascal retracted his hand and blew a raspberry. The bemused Zlatan had nothing left to do but reply with a similar gesture.
We have sent many internet trackers and sherpas out to attempt to find the moment this occurred as we suspect Zlatan’s facial expression was not so much “bemused” but “be-bitched”.
Side note: Can someone do the right thing and send us the .gif of Steven Gerrard getting the “oops too slow” treatment? We’d like to have it available in case a compare and contrast situation comes up.
Update – here’s Stevie’s! Thanks Kathi!
Update 2 - here’s the Ibrah video. Thanks KJ!
