Former Manchester United forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic will not be playing at the 2018 Fifa World Cup in Russia after his exclusion from the squad ahead of the Mundial.
The vastly experienced forward is still bitter over his non-inclusion from the world greatest football fiesta that will kick-off in Russia on June 14.
In a Daily mail report, the LA Galaxy top star revealed that his omission from The Blue-Yellow squad to this summer’s World Cup, was the handwork of Swedish media.

“The media says they are better without me so that’s why I believe in them.
“This is the Swedish media mentality. I don’t have a typical Swedish name. I’m not the typical Swedish attitude, behaviour and that and still I have the record in the national team.
“I think it’s the biggest party in football, playing in the World Cup. All the best players are there. Zlatan is not there so… he should have been there. But he’s not there.”
