Back in favor in this year 2020 at AC Milan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a voice that counts. As football faces a new case of racism this week, with accusations of alleged racist insults by a fourth-referee against Pierre Achille Webo last Tuesday during a Champions League poster between the PSG and Istanbul Basaksehir, the Swede took a stand in an interview this Saturday for BBC Sport.

I think my sport, football, is where you connect all people from all these parts of the world into one. So I’m saying football is a religion, and everyone is welcome. ”

“When these things happen, when we talk about racism, I think they are poorly educated people, who have no idea what it is, explains Ibrahimovic again. We live in 2020: it doesn’t matter what where you come from, who you are or what color you are, we are all the same at the end of the day. Either you change and you give a real consequence or you do nothing. There is no step in between because that wouldn’t help. It’s yes or no. ”
