A bronze statue of former Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been unveiled in his hometown in Sweden. The statue is 8ft 9in tall and weighs almost 500kg.

The structure which was created by Swedish artist Peter Linde, was commissioned by the Swedish FA yesterday in Malmo.

Ibrahimovic started his career with Malmo before going on to play for Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris St-Germain and United. He moved to the United States to play in the MLS in 2018. The 38-year-old scored 62 goals in 116 games for Sweden between 2001 and 2016.
