Zlatan Ibrahimovic Responds To Interviewer Who Pronounces His Name Wrong

After being a standout performer in a 3-1 win over Philadelphia Union on Sunday, Ibrahimovic gave an interview where, in classic Zlatan fashion, the Swede stated that if he came to the USA ten years before, he would likely be the President of the country.
