Manchester United have reportedly offered Zlatan Ibrahimovic a contract to play for them when he's done rehabilitating the knee injury he suffered at the end of last season, with an eye toward a transition to a coaching role.
If you needed further proof that Zlatan is royalty, or if you just wanted to see a picture of Zlatan with a giant banknote with his face on it, today is your lucky day.
He still doesn't have a team to play on, but Zlatan's Instagram remains as amazing as ever.
Picture it: you're playing some kind of first person video game. You're almost done. The last level is situated in an industrial complex, but you're not sure what kind. The end of the level is through a big garage door. The final boss lies in wait. This is it. This is the moment. You push the button to open the door. A whooshing sound, then the door begins to creak open. Steam pours out of the opening. You strain your eyes to get a glimpse of what you're about to face. Finally, it comes into focus.
LOOK OUT IT'S ZLATAN!
It’s that time of year: the temperature is hotter, the days are longer, and players are heading for the exit and onto new clubs. Take a look at which Europe-based stars might make the leap to the states this summer.
The good news is this move makes Manchester United once again much easier to hate. That's right, Zlatan is gone, banished from Manchester United after 42 appearances, 28 goals and one horrible knee injury.
Obviously Zlatan is going to come back. He is Zlatan, after all. The question is where, and that is a question for another day. Today, we must wrap our heads around the fact that we actually kind of liked Manchester United for a bit there, when they had Zlatan and Pogba doing Zlatan things and Pogba things.
Social media is now the most powerful tool for marketing products and services. For celebrities and world-class athletes, social media plays an important role in engaging with fans. As social media becomes more and more commercially influential, it only makes sense that the more followers they get, the more income they'll receive.
Winning trophies is something every world footballer wants. It is a pride to contribute to your team’s success. Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are among the world’s most successful footballers in the modern era. However, neither is the world’s most decorated player when it comes to footballers with the most trophies (based on the numbers of trophies won for their teams, not individual honors). In fact, Cristiano Ronaldo doesn't even make this list, with only 22 team trophies.
