Sweden boss Erik Hamren has claimed that a decision about the future of star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic with the national team will be taken after the Euro 2016. Ibrahimovic has been one of the greatest players in the history of Swedish football. It is quite clear that the national team will struggle without his presence, but there has also been another side of the argument that argues against the presence of Ibrahimovic at this point in his career. The 34-year-old is not one for the future, but he is also preventing the younger players from getting opportunity.
Ibrahimovic has not helped Sweden lift any major trophy but he has surely improve the profile of Swedish football around the world. Hamren has admitted that Sweden to have a lot of talent apart from Ibrahimovic and they are likely to be recognised once the Paris St Germain striker steps down from his role. Even at this age, Ibrahimovic continues to dominate football with his goals and skills. He helped PSG win yet another league title last season. His role at the French club, though, is likely to be subdued in the upcoming campaign due to the new signings like Angel di Maria brought in over the summer. Read more »

The Swedish national manager, Erik Hamren, reckons whatever Zlatan Ibrahimovic said following the Bordeaux game, it was all the heat of the moment stuff and it should not have been blown out of proportion.
Ibrahimovic was fuming post that game as he thought his team lost only because of the rough decisions of the referee.
He, thereafter, was heard hurling some negative words on the standard of the referees in France.
