Zlatan Ibrahimovic said the best way to improve American soccer would be for him to have more kids

  • Soccer legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic said in an interview that one way he could have helped the U.S. succeed in his sport would have been for him to have some American kids who would grow up to be stars.
  • Unfortunately, he has a wife and kids already, so that cannot happen.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has already made plenty of waves on and off the field since his arrival in the United States to play for the L.A. Galaxy.

So it was only natural, given that the U.S. is set to miss the World Cup, that sports host Dan Patrick wanted to see what ideas Ibrahimovic might have for improving U.S. Soccer. And his thoughts were, well, interesting.

“I have a wife, I got my two kids. If I would be single I would spread some investments here in the U.S. and you would have future legends in the soccer. But sorry I’m already occupied by my wife and my two kids,” Ibrahimovic told Patrick.

Since the American soccer community can not rely on Zlatan’s “investments” to improve the program, it looks like fans will have to hope MLS starts getting more proactive about playing young players.
