AC Milan's striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, is not just proficient in football. He also has a taekwondo black-belt that he received in the age of 17 from Malmö Taekwondo club, Enighet. Recently, Ibra also received an honorary black-belt from Italian taekwondo team.
Did they give the belt to mock Ibrahimovic beacuse of his bad behavior? The Swedish striker is well known for his preference of attacking his own teammates. This season only, he already involved in a fight with Oguchi Onyewu, during AC Milan training session. Just a while before, he kicked Rodney Strasser from behind and acted like nothing happened. Recently, during AC Milan vs Palermo match, he tried to kicked the ball from Robinho's belly, when the Brazilian celebrated his goal by acting like a pregnant woman.
Apparently, that's not the case. Italian taekwondo team gave the belt purely because of Zlatan Ibrahimovic skill in this martial arts. He also chosen as an icon to promotes taekwondo world championship that going to be held at Florence next week.
Ibra is honored to received the belt. Ironically, just a day after, he practices his kicking skill to Marco Materazzi during Milano derby.
