Zlatan Ibrahimovic criticizes one-game suspension

“I come from a different world, I come from the real world”

Following yesterday’s training session Zlatan Ibrahimovic briefly spoke with the media, and when the LA Galaxy striker was asked to share his thoughts on the one-match suspension served vs. the Rapids for skipping the 2018 MLS All-Star game, Ibra obviously wasn’t a very happy camper.

“It think it is ridiculous, but yeah, no comments” vented a frustrated Zlatan. “They do whatever they want. I come from a different world, I come from the real world.

It is what it is. I respect in the end, and I’m sorry for my teammates only that I could not help them in the game.

But yeah, people are interested in different things. They lose on it, and for me it doesn’t matter.”

Ibra’s got a right to feel aggrieved. The veteran striker who tore ligaments in his knee 16 months ago has routinely skipped games on turf fields but was nonetheless unable to participate in Saturday’s loss to the Rapids, a defeat that snapped LA’s nine-game unbeaten streak.
