Zlatan Ibrahimovic‘s statue is still taking a beating from pissed off fans … the international soccer superstar’s life-sized tribute in Sweden had its nose cut off and got a new paint job.
As we previously reported … Ibra’s statue outside the soccer stadium in Malmo has been under attack since he bought an ownership stake in another Swedish pro team, Hammarby — which operates out of Stockholm.
The thing has been through a lot since it debuted in October — it’s been sprayed with paint, had a toilet seat around its arm and a noose around its neck, been set on fire … and most recently, somebody tried to saw off its feet.
The vandalism continued on Sunday when an angry fan somehow managed to cut off the statue’s nose … and then spray-painted the entire body.
ICYMI — we spoke with Ibra about the constant statue attacks … and he played it off like he didn’t know what we were talking about (but the dude *HAS* to know about it).
Authorities in Malmo have been investigating the vandalism … and workers were already power-washing the statue to remove the paint.
Maybe it’s time to put the thing in a glass box??
