Jimmy Kimmel had his hands full with Zlatan Ibrahimovic last night, who might just go down as the show’s most charismatic and confident guest ever. The big Swede, now playing football for LA Galaxy in MLS, was all smiles and cracking jokes in his signature, borderline cocky style, much to the delight of the audience.
Among the topic of conversation was his Ibra-esque announcement that he was signing for LA Galaxy — famously, he took out a full-page newspaper ad to tell the city of Los Angeles “You’re Welcome.” The striker also revealed whether or not he would be going to the World Cup in Russia this summer.
Some of the best moments were when Ibrahimovic told Kimmel he would make his teammates into stars, that he put Sweden on the map, and that he came to Los Angeles to give everyone a gift — himself.
Watch the hilarious 8-minute clip above and let us know your thoughts on Zlatan in the comments.
