Some fans of AC Milan forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic may not know that his skills extend beyond the football field into martial arts, but the Swedish starman has a black belt in taekwondo. He has been working on this accomplishment for years, and is well-renown amongst him teammates as the man not to mess with.
Despite this, reports say that his teammate, US defender Oguchi Onyewu got into a fight with him during a practice match. It was apparently a big fight that needed their Milan teammates to separate the two, but there were no major injuries. The incident has long since been forgotten, but if one were to guess, Zlatan probably would have won the fight.
In a related incident, you can see the striker hitting a teammate of his with a kick during training session. It appears to be a slight incident, or at least not made with an intention to harm. One wonders if Zlatan does this often, and how funny his teammates find his martial arts antics to be, but it’s clear he has the confidence to do much of what he wants.
Milan fans will also hope he continues his decent form for the Italian giants, which has not been characterized by a many goals, but he has done his part since coming on loan from Barcelona. Super-kicking them into the Champions League knockout round will be an added bonus too.
