Zlatan Ibrahimovic and headlines go together like peanut butter and jelly.

Hosseinpour blasted Ibrahimovic for thinking he was "above criticism, that he is above Malmo FF and our feelings just because he is Zlatan".

The 38-year-old described his latest move after departing LA Galaxy earlier in the month as "fun and exciting", but he has subsequently faced a backlash from Malmo supporters.

The former Sweden global has now purchased a 50% holding in the Anschutz Entertainment Group, which owns the Galaxy and also has a controlling interest in Hammarby, who finished third in the top division last season and are set to play in the Europa League.

"This is, of course, exciting news and we look forward to welcoming Zlatan to our club", Von Yxkull said.

Routinely linked to several Serie A clubs, the former Juventus, Barcelona and Manchester United star has never hidden from speculation over his future, and has often fuelled such talk.

Hammarby finished third in Sweden's top league this season - behind champion Djurgarden and Malmo - and will play in the Europa League next year.

Ford v Ferrari continues to perform well, easing a respectable 49% to earn 16 million (adding up to a 57.9 million tally so far). She said " Frozen 2 " pictures the characters' growth as they accept the change and overcome obstacles of the scary outer world.

The figure was only unveiled last month, and is located between their new and old grounds, but it has now been defaced after his move to the board of Hammarby, which is particularly surprising given his previous affiliation with Malmo from 1999-2001 - his first professional club. So to get a person like Zlatan Ibrahimovic involved in our club, with his winning mentality, feels ideal.

Ibrahimovic sparked rumours on Tuesday that he was set to continue his playing career with Hammarby, after an Instagram post showing the back of the club's kit bearing his name.

At the Galaxy, he scored 56 goals in 52 games in MLS.

"What I have done for Malmo will be there forever", Ibrahimovic said, when asked if he was concerned about the reaction of Malmo fans.

He said: "Zlatan has not joined us yet".

"What I have done for Malmo will be there forever", Ibrahimovic said, when asked if he is concerned Malmo fans will be disappointed.
