Located in Malmo, Sweden, the shirtless statue created by Swedish artist Peter Linde measures nearly nine feet in height and close to half a ton in weight. Commissioned by Sweden’s football authorities to honour their record goalscorer, Zlatan himself was there in person for the reveal ceremony. Malmo is a fitting place to house the statue considering it is Ibrahimovic’s hometown and where he started his professional career back in 1999.

The 38-year-old LA Galaxy star posted a picture of him alongside the statue on Twitter along with the caption, “We are Zweden!!!” The former Sweden international teased the statue’s creation back in December 2016 on IG with a picture of the plaster cast and stated, “When you come to New York you have the Statue of Liberty when you come to Sweden you have the Statue of Zlatan.”
