Some call him extra. Some call him an exhibitionist. Some even call him plain arrogant (never…). But really, he’s just 100% pure Zlatan.
When you’ve got talent like Zlatan Imbrahimovic, you can pretty much do whatever the fuck you want. In the past, this has included (though definitely has not been limited to):
- Gifting his wife nothing for her birthday because “… she already has Zlatan…”
- Donkey punching teammates on the back of the head as an encouraging post-goal celebration
- Welcoming LeBron James to LA as a “king” while calling himself a “god”
Which is exactly why none of us are entirely shocked at how the ultra-prolific striker has scored his 500th career goal.
In the video above, watch as the former Barcelona, Manchester United, and Paris Saint-Germian star made his mark at LA Galaxy. At the risk of spoiling the surprise, our favorite Swede puts his Taekwando black belt to use, directing a no-look goal with a spinning heel kick. The timing is just unreal.

Truly the stuff of legends. And, dare I say it, gods.
