Latif Blessing slams inhuman Ibrahimovic

Ghanaian international Latif Blessing is disappointed with the excessive celebrations of Zlatan Ibrahimovic after the Swede shoved him over in celebration of a goal in the Los Angeles ‘El Trafico’ derby on Friday night.

Before the spicy encounter Ibrahimovic, star striker for Los Angeles Galaxy had bristled at comparisons with Blessings Los Angeles FC teammate Carlos Vela.

In a matchup between the league's top two scorers, Ibrahimovic scored his second hat trick in MLS and led the Galaxy to a 3-2 victory in the first meeting between the two clubs this season.

However, after Ibrahimovic’s left-footed strike completed a well-deserved hat trick for the LA Galaxy striker, he appeared to run into Blessing who flew into the air and collapsed onto the ground.

Blessing later took to Twitter to question the "inhuman" actions of the outspoken Swede.

He posted: "I grew up looking up to you and having the opportunity to play against you is something I’ll always hold in High esteem but what are you teaching the young kid who sees you as a role model? ???? ???????? is now part of goal celebration ??????? this’s inhuman ?".
