Sweden National Coach Responds After Zlatan Says He's Going To The World Cup

Sweden National Coach Responds After Zlatan Says He's Going To The World Cup

It's no surprise that Zlatan Ibrahimović has been causing stir over in the USA. Having recently moved to LA Galaxy from Manchester United, the Swede has been rubbing shoulders with the stars of Hollywood.

But most recently the veteran striker has shaken social media when he announced on the Jimmy Kimmel Show that he will in fact be heading to the World Cup in Russia this summer.

"I'm going to the World Cup", Ibrahimovic exclaimed in front of the live audience.

Zlatan can do most things but the decision of him going to the tournament is still down to Sweden national coach Janne Andersson.

"If he [Ibrahimovic] changes his mind, contacts me and tells me 'yes, I want to be part of it,' then we'll sit down and discuss what that would mean, how we play these days and so on," said Andersson to Kicker, via NBC. "But that's all speculation,

"I don't know [if he'd still fit into the team]. But I also don't think about it. I take the things as they come if they come."

The coach took up the reigns of the national side almost immediately after the towering striker announced his retirement from international football in 2016.

"If you want to be part of it, you must call me. Easy as that."

"We managed to qualify and go through to the World Cup without him, and I think we can manage to play well at the World Cup without him. I'm sure if he does join, he will play well.

Over to you, Zlatan.
