Let it never be said that Zlatan Ibrahimovic doesn’t have time for his fans.
The Swedish striker was minding his own business rollerblading through the streets of Los Angeles on Wednesday when he came across one of his ‘biggest’ supporters.
The 36-year-old, who joined LA Galaxy in March, was more than happy to stop and take a photo with the delighted youngster, son of Omaha World-Herald reporter Christopher Burbach.

A clearly thrilled Burbach took to Twitter to share the picture and the experience with his followers.
‘We chose LA for summer vacation in part so our kid, Sweden’s biggest fan in Omaha, could see his favorite soccer player in an LA Galaxy game,’ the American wrote alongside the snap.
‘Then who should we run into on the street but himself. He graciously allowed a photo. Who knew lions could be so friendly?’
Rollerblading has become one of Ibrahimovic’s biggest hobbies since moving to the City of Angels, the former Manchester United star sharing a video of himself ‘Rollin’ in Venice Beach’ on Tuesday morning.
The forward has also been enjoying life on the pitch with 11 goals in 14 games in the MLS. The Galaxy currently sit eighth in the Western Conference, a point off the play-off places.
