Ok guys, you've proven Sweden still deserves me.
You can now ask me to get back from international retirement and I'll gladly say yes.

I really hope he doesn't come back. The strength of the swedish team lies in team-spirit and organization, and he completely ruined that when he played for Sweden. Just look at this obnoxious tweet.

Caleb Evans
Caleb Evans

Cringe.
In all seriousness I'd take him but keep him on bench and only field him if the situation is dire 15 minutes before the final whistle to rally the other players.

Julian Hughes
Julian Hughes

hes coming back right ?

Andrew Rogers
Andrew Rogers

Doesn't matter, he will still ruin it when he starts nagging like a little bitch at the others in half-time.

Gabriel Adams
Gabriel Adams

Give him his own locker room.

Nathaniel Hall
Nathaniel Hall

G-guys, you can call me anytime. Please.

Joseph Sullivan
Joseph Sullivan

I don't think he's good for team morale/locker room. Our new manager isn't a betacuck like our last one, but still... I don't know.

He doesn't deserve to start, if he can be in the squad as a sub, sure.

Dylan Lewis
Dylan Lewis

No Thanks fuck him

Blake Harris
Blake Harris

He ruins team harmony. He doesnt give a shit about teammates, the NT or Sweden. All he play for is his own ego. His time in the team was a mental terror for the other players. Hes just to selfish.

I really despise him.

Camden Torres
Camden Torres

Yeah you might be right.I don't think his ego would allow for him to be a sub.

dude fuck the gameplan gimme the ball im zlatan, im gonna walk around up here with their CBs
lose

Christopher Ortiz
Christopher Ortiz

His ego is what is going to stop him from coming back though. What if he comes back and Sweden completely fails? Wouldn't look very good for his "brand".

Oliver Perry

Julian White

Zlatan is litterally the worst best player.

He IS very talented, but how the fuck does that matter when you have an ego the size of Jupiter, and you are so arrogant that you make the whole team play worse?

Jeremiah Torres
Jeremiah Torres

It's quite funny with him. I don't think it's his fault that the team played like shit. I just think Hamren was like "fuck it guys, just play the ball to zlatan, he'll do something"

Bentley Hill
Bentley Hill

I don't think Ibra would take other people's glory. He wasn't part of the team that qualified.

Alexander Harris
Alexander Harris

I just think Hamren was like "fuck it guys, just play the ball to zlatan, he'll do something"
But thats the way he liked it, he hated playing under Lagerbäck who did things more like the current coach

Samuel Turner
Samuel Turner

Bring him for banterous purposes

Ryder Allen
Ryder Allen

See

Matthew Bell
Matthew Bell

bring him in, then let him sit on the bench the entire tournament

Jaxson Russell
Jaxson Russell

I know but as a coach you either do something for the whole team or not. I'm sure a younger Zlatan would hate that, but beside all the meme shit he does, he has changed to a more mature player.

Brayden Hughes
Brayden Hughes

His attitude has only worsened desu

Jaxon Robinson
Jaxon Robinson

that kid tears his acl last night
ibra sitting at home with his bionic acls
Its a sign

Angel Nguyen
Angel Nguyen

He was always in conflict under Lagerbäck because Lagerbäck would have none of that shit. He and his two beta orbiters, Mellberg Christian Wilhelmsson, would isolate themselves from the rest of the team when they didn't get what they wanted.

Zachary Flores
Zachary Flores

Really? I'm thinking about Blanc, Ancelotti and Mourinho, he had good relationships with all off them. Even Blanc gave him matches off.

Austin Mitchell
Austin Mitchell

He is joking probably. Since he came to United i watched almost all interviews with him and he really seems down to earth and more mature.

Also as i said, it isn't in Zlatan's style to take other people's glory. If he gets a call he might go, but i doubt that he will force it.

Leo Miller
Leo Miller

he starts nagging

Imagine how retarded you must be to think real Zlatan is like media Zlatan.

Jacob Bennett
Jacob Bennett

It's not the same, there he actually had good teammates to calm his huge ego

Connor Diaz
Connor Diaz

Yeah, his public cimp-outs and fights with coaches are just media stunts.

Landon Cruz

he comes back
we crash out of the group
Don't know if he'd risk the blow to his ego.

Juan Carter
Juan Carter

real Zlatan is better than media Zlatan
lol

Ryder Long
Ryder Long

Zlatan comes back
gets 95% of the media's attention, that the rest of the team had worked really hard to deserve
crashes team morale
No thank you

Samuel Gray
Samuel Gray

The only ones that liked playing with him was the Isis members

Robert Rogers

I honestly just want him to come back.

Eli Robinson
Eli Robinson

they actually think they have a choice not to recall zlatan after he scores like 20 goals in half a season for United and wins the PL.

Ryan Jackson
Ryan Jackson

You don't know Janne.

Jacob Turner
Jacob Turner

He'll get fired for not picking zlatan.

Nathaniel Sullivan
Nathaniel Sullivan

He always makes everything about him and only makes the rest of the team worse, it's not worth it

Noah Thompson
Noah Thompson

No he won't. No chance.

Leo Young
Leo Young

He just took us to WC. He won't get fired

Logan Morris
Logan Morris

You can argue Zlatan was the real manager under Hamén, and that was only good for Zlatans image, the team was the most shit it has ever been.
Now it's better than it has been since like 2006, despite the player material being a bit worse than... ever maybe.
Put Zlatan in this team and it would perform even worse than 2009-2016, as the rest of the players are marginally worse.

Jacob Nelson

We don't want you back.

He's trying to force himself into the picture, figuratively. His ego is that big.

Brody Edwards

but why spell it the dutch way? isnt it sverige in swedish?

Matthew Parker

Z is for Zlatan

Jayden Stewart

The 'Z' is for Zlatan.

He can barely speak Swedish anyway so it could have just been a mistake.

Ayden Ross
Ayden Ross

real zlatan randomly kicks his teammates because why the fuck not

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpUjUMNpF-c

but that was probably a media stunt, indeed

Mason Nelson

agree

his work rate is ridiculous. literally just standing there

Benjamin Russell

i think he'll do more harm than good.
but of course reddit and facebook, etc are all jerking their dicks right now to the thought of le zlatan returning

Connor Lopez

He's the definition of a meme player so of course reddit will shill for him

Bentley Robinson

Sweden isn't meant to have a superstar player. Look at when Sweden won bronze in 1994. No superstars. We are like Iceland but with more people, ego doesn't win you a medal. Good teamwork does.

Kevin Butler
Kevin Butler

Maybe he made a haiku about italy's defeat

Caleb Perry
Caleb Perry

Is he really that much of a dick on the NT? I've watched a lot of zlatan at club level and he's generally a team player, drops back, assists and an amazing passer for a CF.

Never watched him play for Sweden though.

Blake Powell
Blake Powell

Where are the Africans? Do they not want to win the WC? They can't come close to teams like France if this is what they have.

Asher Rogers
Asher Rogers

He drops way too much back on the NT. I don't get the hate from the swedes on here. I watched him and he was playing fine. But the team lacks a gameplan with him, they just play the ball to him.

Aaron Cox
Aaron Cox

is this the american definition of a team player?
dropping back to get more of the ball?
assisting and giving amazing passes?

in football there are a lot of things you can do that benefit the team but isn't seen or remembered by the common fan, and doesn't benefit you directly.

Zlatan does none of that, his value is exactly the goals and assists he make, apart from them, he's a burden to the team, doesn't matter if it's Milan, PSG, Barcelona or Sweden. His lack of work rate and poor success rate in actions will have a negative impact on the team until he creates a goal

Parker Reed
Parker Reed

Good post

To be fair it's not that easy to know how much fault is his and how much Hamrén is the one to blame, since their time in the NT is quite intertwined.

Thomas Morales
Thomas Morales

I feel like this team lacks pace. Also, I can't put my finger on it, but I think they are different from other european teams? :thinking:

Levi Adams
Levi Adams

yeah the team is better as a unit. Amazing that a blessing like a star player, can be a burden.

Easton Cox
Easton Cox

We don't need speedy niggers on the wings

Brayden Campbell
Brayden Campbell

With zlatan the team believes they can keep the ball and attack. Without him they sit back and counter because they don't believe in their own skills.

Counter attacking football is cancer.

Cameron Sullivan
Cameron Sullivan

Swedish forwards a complete garbage though. Any competent forward would've at least scored 1 against italy.

Adam Lopez
Adam Lopez

We missed out on 2 penalties, plus Italy never lose home so you don't know what you're talking about

Juan Taylor
Juan Taylor

I agree. But Ibra is detrimental to the team anyways.

We should switch out our token negro Thelin out for token dunecoon Ghoddos. He's actually a competent striker, quick, good on the ball. He's doing well in Europa League too

Josiah Roberts
Josiah Roberts

There were 3 clear chances in the 2nd leg.

Andrew Young
Andrew Young

Yeah but we had a player hurt which killed our offense

Ethan Perez

Do Swedes even see Zlatan as Swedish?

Kayden Harris
Kayden Harris

People will say he should have brought zlatan when they go out in the groups I can tell you that much. Whether he gets fired who knows, I've seen firings over less

Noah Lewis
Noah Lewis

Yes?

Jeremiah Wilson
Jeremiah Wilson

No hes just a mercenary

James Wood
James Wood

He's not gonna be fired. With this WC qualification he will be manager until contract runs out. Last time Swe were in WC was 2006, it's a really big deal for us.

Isaiah Rivera
Isaiah Rivera

Yeah. It's a very interesting phenomenon. I think he needs a strong coach to be a good force on a team.
And I don't think the team benefits from him getting about 95% of the attention when he's around. But media is to blame for that.

And this is based on watching how many games with Sweden?

Luke Ross
Luke Ross

His kids are blond and blue eyed, so I guess it's ok.

Lucas Gomez
Lucas Gomez

Some do, some do not. When debating who is swedish and who isn't his name often pops up. His accent sounds too foreign if you ask me.

Leo Clark

Let me tell you about your country: The post

Mason Murphy

Honorary Swede.

Isaiah Morgan

I never understood why his accent was so shit. He grew up in Sweden and sounds like a native jug

Joshua Bennett

that creepy Di Maria look

What did he mean by that?

Alexander Green
Alexander Green

that's funny because you can hear he is swedish, when he talks in his parents native language

Christopher Carter
Christopher Carter

Question is, is Zlatan capable of knowingly combining Zlatan-Sweden to Zweden to also hint our extermination in one go. I don't suppose so. But it raises the question indeed.

Thomas Young
Thomas Young

He's from malmöee, barely a part of Sweden.

Xavier Cooper

wtf I thought zlatan was idolized in his country

Aiden Smith

kek, Hamrén failed consistently for seven years and was never fired. Coaching Sweden is a hell of an easy job to keep. Janne need not worry.

Camden King

He grew up in Rosengård, i don't think he even considered himself a swede until he was an adult

Anthony Reed

He is, just not on Sup Forums

Landon Russell

Didn't Zlat literally say he didn't want to play and that Sweden play better without him?

Hunter Walker
Hunter Walker

If I listened to my ego then Sweden would, of course, be a better team with me. But the team has done it really well so far, secured second place in a difficult group [ahead of Holland] and been given this chance to play in the play-offs. The strength of this team is the group

Connor Ortiz
Connor Ortiz

“If I listened to my ego then Sweden would, of course, be a better team with me,” added Ibrahimovic. “But the team has done it really well so far, secured second place in a difficult group [ahead of Holland] and been given this chance to play in the play-offs. The strength of this team is the group.

By the media he is, no doubt.
But by the population it's a lot more mixed.

Alexander Powell

seems like he checked his ego

Tyler Phillips
Tyler Phillips

So the apology/sucking up tour begins. There is no way he would want to sit out WC. It's absolutely his last chance. He's got like 6-12 months more in him at most

Thomas Perry
Thomas Perry

Is that a question?

Ian Turner
Ian Turner

Would be kind of shitty if you get dropped from the team and can't go to a WC in order for Zlatan to sit on the bench.

Joseph Foster
Joseph Foster

He can't win with you right?
If he said the team was poor and shit. you would hate him for it.
If he says the team is doing good, you still hate him

Ryder Long
Ryder Long

yes, it implies"why wouldnt we"

Dominic Turner
Dominic Turner

Because he's not Swedish.

Oliver White
Oliver White

No I don't mind him, he's or at least was a fantastic CF, world class even.

But with the national team it just gets weird. Yes we get better finishing, but also worse defence/teamplay/movement.

Caleb Torres

People do love him as a player but our team was way weaker when he was captain and when Hamren was coach. He would always structure his plays around zlatan which was a massive mistake.

Janne might be able to curtail his Ego, especially since he will likely beg to be allowed back onto the team.

I'd love to see him in the WC because he is a reliable scorer, but he has no buisness calling the shots or being the focus of our plays.

Aiden Clark
