Sweden professional footballer, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is no doubt one of the hottest strikers in the world during his prime. He played for Barcelona, Juventus and Manchester United before he went to the United States of America after he signed for LA Galaxy.

The 38-year-old striker had a swell time in United States, he scored about 53 goals in 58 appearances for LA Galaxy. This literally means the striker didn’t score only in 5 games which is still very fair enough.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic left the MLS side when the ovation was the loudest earlier in January when he signed a new contract with Ac-Milan, he pride himself as one of the best strikers in the league before he left, whereas, it seems some of his teammates are not so fond of him.

Lletget has opened up about the stress of playing alongside with Zlatan Ibrahimovic. In his opinion, he believes the club is better without the Sweden striker in it. Lletget revealed this while speaking on the latest episode of BSI: The Podcast. According to him, the exit of Ibrahimovic away from the team has greatly improved the team’s spirit.

In his words,

As far as chemistry, that’s only going to build with time.” “You couldn’t be free. It was super frustrating. You feel like you want to literally take your boots off and just walk off the field.

“It’s tough to play against him and tougher to play with him,” He added.

Lletget may have developed some form of dislike for Zlatan Ibrahimovic after their match with local rivals LAFC which ended in a draw. Ibrahimovic and Lletget stood side by side in a wall to defend a free-kick. The 38-year-old striker pushed the midfielder out of the wall. His action shocked everyone seeing the match, but their shock was not as great as that of Lletget himself, he looked so confused.

While he was Lletget was speaking about the incident, he said:

What’s funny about that guy, that to me is complete insanity to do that to one of your teammates — complete insanity.”

“I was telling him in that play: ‘This [opponent] is alone, should I go?’ I’m kind of whispering to him and he said: ‘No, stay’. Then literally as he’s about to kick it, he just shoves me and you can see in the video that I just play it off super cool. Then obviously I wake up the next day and it goes viral. 

“it’s one of those moments I think he shows his true colors,” he said.
