Yes, it looks like Zlatan Ibrahimovic is ready for the new season. The Paris Saint Germain forward has made the karate kick/scorpion kick hybrid goal his own - and it was out again in PSG training this week.
A Vine video has surfaced of Ibrahimovic and the rest of the PSG squad training in Kitchee ahead of their preseason match tomorrow afternoon.
The Ligue 1 champions have lost one and won three of their warm-up games so far, and take on Hong Kong-based side Kitchee at 2pm local time.
In this training session before the match, Ibrahimovic gets put through via a ball over the top. With the keeper rushing out, just in shot, Ibrahimovic leaps up, and with an outside of the right boot, karate kicks the ball over the keeper. But then?
Zlatan's reaction tells us nothing, and the video ends without ever showing us the end result. All we see is the keeper bringing the ball out of the net. The same ball? A different ball? We will never know. If that's the sort of thing that bugs you, I'm sorry. If it's not, then great! Enjoy it again. And again. And again.
Ligue 1 season
Because Zlatan is the only player in the world that can pull this sort of thing off, and the Ligue 1 season is still 10 days away.
PSG return to France for the Champion's trophy match against Guingamp on Saturday before kicking off their campaign with a Friday night match against Reims in Paris on 20:30 on August 8th.
