Zlatan Ibrahimović, the most entertaining man in sports, has definitely found a home in Los Angeles. The only thing that could make sports in L.A. better would be if LeBron James decided to… oh, right. How lucky are L.A. sports fans right about now?
Anyway, just to further prove that being a sports fan in Los Angeles is unlike being a sports fan anywhere else, Zlatan casually called up LA Galaxy season ticket holders the other day to thank them for renewing, because of course he did.
“Ernesto, this is Zlatan Ibrahimović from Galaxy, how are you, boss?” Zlatan asks one fan who must have thought he was being pranked. “I heard you renew your season tickets. Are you happy?”
Later in the conversation, Zlatan tells Ernesto, “I called to congratulate you and to tell you you will not be disappointed, my friend. I will give you a lot of joy, happiness and goals. Is there something else you want? The MLS cup. That I will bring to you also. No problem.”
“No worries, we’ll keep in touch,” Zlatan tells Ernesto before asking if he can make another call.
Employee of the Month, indeed.
Not done there, The Lion also predicted the winner of the UFC 227 main event.
Yep, still got it.
