Zlatan Ibrahimovic is making headlines again and he seems to enjoy taking a shot at LeBron James. The superstar doubled down on his criticism on LeBron. I guess he doesn’t like when athletes do both politics and sports. Well, LeBron is not doing politics at all. He is just trying to make things easier for the less fortunate. That’s all. He is one of the very few athletes who raise their voice when society treats people badly.
Ibrahimovic said that LeBron should stick to his game. The four-time NBA champion took notice of the comments the Milan striker made. He was loud and clear.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic goes after LeBron James once again
What happened next? Ibrahimovic strikes again. He addressed his exchange with LeBron. This will make people talk for a really long time.
“I said that we are not politicians,” The Milan star said in his interview with France Football. “Politics divides people. Football, in my world, unites people. Big difference. Because I have had the chance to meet and get to know people that I would never have known if I did not play football. I have met people from all four corners of the world. We unite people. Politicians divide. If I wanted to be a politician, I would do politics. We should only do what we’re good at. Sports and politics are two different categories. If you are intelligent, you understand.”
LeBron doesn’t mind any of this. He is focused on his game and his new season with the Lakers. His team missed the chance to win a title in 2020-21, and LeBron will try to avoid a similar catastrophe. Ibrahimovic will only motivate him to focus on all the people who need a hand in these hard times.
A lot of people have a better life just because LeBron gave them a hand. He opened a school in his hometown. He also helped the African-American community fight for its rights. More Than a Vote, remember? He also organized a prom party online in the middle of the pandemic.
