Zlatan Ibrahimovic earns a black belt in karate, delivers flying kick to goalkeeper's chest

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was shown a red card for a vicious flying kick to the chest. "Hiiiiiii ya!"

Dean Mouhtaropoulos

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a lot of things. He is a goal scoring extraordinaire, a brilliant playmaker, the carrier of a very healthy ego and a divisive figure (although most of the hatred heaped upon him is ridiculous and if you are one of those people then I have to ask what you have against fun).

One thing we did not know about Ibrahimovic is that he has a mean karate kick, but he showed it off on Saturday. We know it now. Stéphane Ruffier sure knows it.

"Red card? Well worth it." (Said in Zlatan's best Olaf Sanderson voice from D2 The Mighty Ducks)
