Sweden coach Andersson: Ibrahimovic needs to call me

Sweden coach Jan Andersson says Zlatan Ibrahimovic needs to make the first move if he wants to play in the World Cup.

The former Manchester United striker scored twice on his LA Galaxy last weekend.

Ibrahimovic has spoken about returning to international football, claiming Sweden officials are constantly in contact.

But Andersson said, "Zlatan in 2016 made the decision to leave the national team. Respecting this, I will not be the one to call him.

"If he has rethought this, he must call me, I will not call him."
