AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is known for having cheeky humorous statements of self-appraisal that have made him appear as the sportsman with the highest self-esteem ever and a sense of humour.
The soccer star, who once said he doesn’t take performance tests because the entire world already knows what he is capable of doing on the football pitch and what he has already accomplished throughout his career that spans over more than two decades of playing, has once again come back with another cheeky statement, this time about the Coronavirus.
The Swedish star tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday during the routine checks that were instituted by football leagues around the world to help in early detection of the virus in a bid to keep teammates and support staff safe.
As anyone would think, Zlatan is not fazed at all by his positive status, and is ready to beat the virus the way he has been beating defenders and goalkeepers to score hundreds of goals during his long career.
“I tested negative to COVID yesterday and positive today. No symptoms whatsoever. COVID had the courage to challenge me. Bad idea,” Zlatan tweeted yesterday.
Zlatan joins a list of athletes that have tested positive for COVID-19 like Daniel Rugani, Usain Bolt, Arsenal manger Mikel Arteta, Westham boss David Moyes, among others, although some of them have not gone public about it.
During his long career, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has played for Malmo in Sweden, Ajax in Netherlands, Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan in Italy, Barcelona in Spain, PSG in France, Manchester United in England, and LA Galaxy in USA.
We are sure the virus is shaking now!
