Why did Zlatan Ibrahimovic play the drums?

We’ve got a few ideas

MLS: LA Galaxy at Sporting Kansas City Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

During the late stages of LA’s mid-week battle vs. Sporting Kansas City, Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s goalscoring tally reached double digits with a powerful half-volley which beat goalkeeper Tim Meila to double the Galaxy advantage.

As is his want, Zlatan celebrated with a bit of air drums. Which seemed fun at the time, but was there something more to that celebration?

Theory #1: Led by the Cauldron, Sporting Kansas City enjoy great support inside Children’s Mercy Park, including an instrumental section dominated by snare drums. (Recently a splash of cymbals have been added but the noise is still drum heavy)

After listening to a marching band for upwards of 86 minutes, you’re going to want to join in on the fun too right?

Theory #2: Not too long ago Carlos Vela (The one person ahead of Ibra in the goalscoring charts) scored in Columbus and celebrated with an air guitar.

In an unchecked moment of man aggression, Zlatan, ruthless competitor that he is, may have taken the oppurtunity to one-up the red-hot striker. It wouldn’t surprise us, that’s for sure.
