Ex-Man Utd striker Ibrahimovic takes swipe at ex-player pundits: They want attention

Former Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has taken aim at ex-player pundits after confirming he won't be part of Sweden's World Cup squad.

The LA Galaxy striker has been informed he won't be considered by Sweden.

And he told Univision: "They are better without Zlatan."

Asked if he could still go to Russia as a TV pundit, he also said: "No, players who go there as television experts are players seeking attention. I do not need attention.

"I think Sweden is favourite to win the World Cup because they are better without Zlatan. I'm not part of the Swedish national team and have not been there for almost two years."
