Zlatan Ibrahimovic spent a colorful year in America where he impressed the USA with his skill and determination on the pitch.

However, Ibrahimovic is now returning to Europe for one last ride.

Even though Zlatan had a good time in America, he does have one detail he very much disliked.

Football – or as they call it soccer – is very expensive for the kids, which isn’t the case in Europe.

”It has to be said that the sport is expensive, very expensive. For example, in order for my children to play in a good football team, I have to pay $ 3,500 per child.

“It is not for the figure, but for the whole concept.

“I dislike it very much because not everyone has the money needed and the sport should be something for everyone because it unites people of whatever origin.

“Pelé became a champion without anything, he played with a ball made of rags. Football is the finest sport in the world,” he told GQ Italia.

It’s hard to shake off the feeling that Ibra is right. Hopefully, things in America soon change for the better.
