NBA legend and Liverpool stakeholder LeBron James is currently in a feud with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, after the former Manchester United striker criticised him for expressing his opinion publicly in non-sporting matters.
Watch Zlatan sending for LeBron, first, here:
‘I don’t like when people, when they have some kind of status, and they do politics at the same time as what they are doing.’
Zlatan Ibrahimovic says LeBron James and other high profile athletes should simply stick to sports. 👀

We ask Zlatan, imagine if his former team-mate Marcus Rashford had decided to stay out of anything political – and simply focus on his football?
Would that have made him a better man? Would that have been an example Rashford using his position of power and privilege to affect positive change?
The Swede is an idiot. End of.
