Zlatan Ibrahimovic Rips Tony Kornheiser For Mispronouncing His Name On PTI
Zlatan Ibrahimovic made an appearance on ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption with Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon on Tuesday, and the LA Galaxy forward was full of his usual bluster, saying, among other things, that he could help LeBron James lift the Los Angeles Lakers back to relevance by trying his hand at the “basket.”
As ESPN talking heads, Kornheiser and Wilbon have far-reaching, inscrutable opinions on every sport and every athlete in America, but as ESPN talking heads, they know absolutely nothing about soccer. That fact was made abundantly clear with the behind-the-scenes footage PTI shared. Here’s Zlatan ripping Kornheiser for mispronouncing his name.

And if you have five minutes to watch Zlatan discuss his time with the Galaxy, LeBron’s arrival in LA, how he uses hate to motivate his game and how he’ll disappear after his professional career, watch it all below.
