Zlatan Ibrahimovic Reacts Angrily To Reporter Who Asks Him About Daniele De Rossi

Zlatan Ibrahimovic Reacts Angrily To Reporter Who Asks Him About Daniele De Rossi

LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic had no time for a reporter who wanted to know his thoughts on Daniele De Rossi's recent transfer to Boca Juniors.

The 37-year-old was signing autographs for fans after the club's 4-3 defeat to Seattle Sounders when he was interrupted by the man.

"Zlatan, can I ask you something?" he said. "They called me from Argentina, from the Boca de Selección program. Now, De Rossi ..."

The Swede then responded sharply, saying: "Do you want a picture or not?" before walking away.

It was a no nonsense move from the former Manchester United striker, who clearly wasn't in the mood to answer questions about De Rossi, who he played against for club and country.

The footage has received a mixed response from fans. Some have criticised his actions, while others have supported them.

Of course, this isn't the first time Ibrahimovic has shut down a reporter in recent months. The 37-year-old, was asked in July whether he considers himself the best player in Major League Soccer.

But before that question was asked, a brave ESPN reporter decided to read out some impressive stats about Los Angeles striker Carlos Vela.

"You said right now you are the best player in Major League Soccer." said the reporter.

"There's another player in Los Angeles, Carlos Vela. In this moment he's got 19 goals and 12 assists and his team is leading the MLS.

"Do you still consider yourself the best player in Major League Soccer?"

Ibrahimovic, clearly taken aback by the question, was very straight forward with his answer, saying:

"By far, because if he's in his prime. How old is he? Twenty-nine and he's playing in MLS and he's in his prime. When I was 29 [I was in Europe]. Big difference."

He's definitely not short of confidence this guy, is he.
