David Beckham Sends Special Video Message to Zlatan Ibrahimovic After His 11th Golden Ball

David Beckham Sends Special Video Message to Zlatan Ibrahimovic After His 11th Golden Ball

Zlatan Ibrahimovic may not be firing on all cylinders for Manchester United at the moment but the former PSG man is still a Swedish hero.

The 35-year-old retired from international football following the Scandinavian outfit’s disappointing appearance at the Euros before joining up with Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford ahead of the new Premier League season.

Since signing for the Red Devils, the striker has netted eight goals in 17 appearances, including a brace in a 3-1 win over Swansea before the international break.

However, after failing to appear in United’s 1-1 draw with Arsenal at the weekend, Ibrahimovic was tonight named Sweden’s Player of the Year for the 11th time in a row.

Zlatan will now have a statue built in his honour in the Swedish capital of Stockholm outside the Friends Arena and one man who paid a special tribute to his former team mate was Manchester United legend David Beckham.

But the question that still begs to be asked is, can he do it on a cold Tuesday night in Stoke?
