Zlatan Ibrahimovic Shoves His Own Teammate Out Of Wall In Los Angeles Derby

Zlatan Ibrahimovic provided box office viewing yet again in the MLS last night when he literally pushed his own teammate of the wall.

The enigmatic Swede struck twice in the Los Angeles derby, with Carlos Vela's goal in the 53rd ensuring the points were shared in 'El Trafico'.

But the 37-year old's most noteworthy moment came late on after he was booked for giving away a free-kick/

Galaxy were arranging the wall as they looked to block the incoming effort and then out of nowhere, the well-travelled striker decided to take matters into his own hands by shoving Sebastian Lletget out of the way so they he would pick up a man instead.

He duly obliged and it typically got a lot of people talking on social media:

Ibrahimovic's actions reminded us of the time when Kalidou Koulibaly came up with a genius method to stop Kylian Mbappe by sending left-back Marco Rui flying into him.

In a Champions League group stage meeting between Napoli and PSG, the World Cup winner had the ball on the right and recognising that Rui was too far away from Mbappe, the Senegalese defender went to extremely lengths to ensure he was touch tight to the PSG No.7.
