Zlatan Ibrahimovic hints at movie career after he finishes playing

Zlatan Ibrahimovic hints at movie career after he finishes playing

Ibrahimovic, who last played at a World Cup with Sweden in 2006, retired from worldwide football after the 2016 European Championship.

Ibrahimovic, now 36, scored 62 goals in 116 games for Sweden in an illustrious worldwide career spanning 15 years.

"We have always been aware of Zlatan's impressive on-field accomplishments, global appeal and colorful personality", said Lynne Biggar, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer, Visa Inc.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the new LA Galaxy star, and very confident human being (though I would be too if I could play soccer that well) continued his media tour this week on The Dan Patrick Show where he was asked which celebrity he most wanted to meet now that he was close to Hollywood.

"I had a vision before I came", he said. "A world Cup without me would not be a world championship", haughtily said Zlatan.

Johnsson added the national team would play differently with Ibrahimovic, or any big star for that matter, in the team.

We won't know if he's actually made the team until we here word from the Swedish national team, but if they are looking for a player who has proven his ability to make a splash no matter where on the planet he's playing, Ibrahimović would be an undeniable value to the squad.

During the course of their banter, the traditional dilemma of fans on the other side of the world came into play when Kimmel brought up the fact that football is called "soccer" in America, and how it isn't exactly their most beloved sport.

In true Zlatan fashion, Ibrahimović ended the conversation, saying "I mean, a World Cup without me wouldn't be a World Cup".

"Me. I don't want to meet nobody, they want to meet me."
