3.- Zlatan’s faux rivalry with Carlos Vela.
The Mexican press thought that pinning Carlos Vela against Zlatan Ibrahimovic as a rivalry in Los Angeles was a good idea.
The Swedish striker even felt offended by the notion, as they’ve had vastly different careers in European football.
Even Vela himself stated that the comparison was an insult to Zlatan, but the Mexican press still insisted on the narrative.
Although Carlos Vela had the last laugh, it’s pretty clear that comparing both players is blasphemy from any angle.
