'LeBron James is taking advantage of his status' - Zlatan goes hard on LeBron James

The AC Milan forward called out the basketball icon on Friday, saying he his taking advantage of his status.

"LeBron is phenomenon at what he's doing but I don't like it when people have some kind of status , they go and do politics at the same time," Ibrahimovic told Discovery+ in Sweden. "Do what you're good at. Do the category you do. I play football I'm the best at playing football.

"I don't do politics. If I would be a political politician, I would do politics. That is the first mistake people do when they become in famous and they become in a certain status. Stay out of it. Just do what you do best because it doesn't look good."

James was named The Associated Press’ Male Athlete of the Year in 2020 after leading the Lakers to the NBA title, marking the fourth time he'd claimed the award.

However, he went on to say he was more proud of what he did off the court in 2020 as part of the drive to support Black Lives Matter and other organizations fighting for equality.

"I still know what I do on the floor and obviously, I give everything to the game," James told the AP 

"But I can make a greater impact off the floor right now, more than I can on the floor. And I want to continue to inspire people with the way I play the game of basketball. But there’s so many more things that I can do off the floor to help cultivate people, inspire people, bring people together, empower them."
