Sweden Coach Says Zlatan Needs To Call Him, He Responds Hilariously
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is doing his very best to convince everyone that he's going to the World Cup and he's been a right tease again on social media.
Recently the LA Galaxy striker got social media buzzing when he announced on the Jimmy Kimmel Show that he will in fact be heading to the showpiece in Russia this summer.
"I'm going to the World Cup", Ibrahimovic exclaimed in front of the live audience.
Sweden manager Janne Andersson is the man with the power as he has the final say on whether the nation's all-time top scorer joins them for the tournament.
Does anyone still think Zlatan is going to the World Cup? Surely if he was serious about it he'd have picked up the phone by now?- Lee Roden (@LeeRoden89) April 24, 2018
"If you want to be part of it, you must call me. Easy as that," was his message to the 36-year old, who called time on his international career at the end of Euro 2016.
And he has responded in typical Zlatan fashion - posting a Samsung advert which comprises of him enjoying life in a swimming pool.

But that's not all though, the well-travelled striker gets a phone call from Janne on his Samsung Gear S3 and chooses to decline before continuing his relaxation session.
Andersson had more to say when asked about Zlatan's potential involvement for the World Cup.
"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.
"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."
Do you think Zlatan will be going to the World Cup or is he just using it all to market himself?
