In a recent interview, the AC Milan striker and ex-LA Galaxy player expressed his disapproval of James and other athletes who use their platform to raise social awareness.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the AC Milan striker and former LA Galaxy star, recently criticized athletes including LeBron James for their involvement in political causes. However, in response to Ibrahimovic’s comments, James promised that he would never stay silent about social injustices and emphasized the importance of using his platform to shed light on issues such as racism and systematic voter suppression. James also pointed out that Ibrahimovic had previously spoken out against racism in his native Sweden, suggesting that his criticism of James was hypocritical. Despite their differences, both James and Ibrahimovic are remarkable athletes who have remained among the world’s best players well into their 30s.
