He defines himself as "The God of football" and in his last appearance before the media he proved to be "one more mortal". Zlatan Ibrahimovic showed his most human side by breaking down in tears during the press conference of the Swedish National Team, which he returns to after more than five years of not representing his nation, missing the World Cup in Russia in 2018.
At the press conference prior to Sweden's game against Georgia with which they will start their adventure in the Qualifiers towards the Qatar World Cup in 2022, Ibrahimovic could not contain the tears when he was questioned about the reaction of his children when he found out about his return to the selective Swedish, showing his most emotional side.
The question from the press took the tough Zlatan with its ‘guard down’, who remembered the words of his son Vincent, who told him “Dad, don’t go away again”, remembering that it was Ibra who resigned from his team. "I have two little ones at home who kick the ball, my wife asks me to tell them to stop but I say no, we can buy new things if they break them", the Milan striker completed his account.
