AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic still stands by his take regarding LeBron James being vocal on his political stance.

Back in February, Ibrahimovic criticized the Lakers star for meddling with politics and he is doubling down his previous take by saying that “sports and politics are two different categories”.

“I said that we are not politicians,” Ibrahimovic said during his interview at France football.

“Politics divides people. Football, in my world, unites people. Big difference. Because I have had the chance to meet and get to know people that I would never have known if I did not play football. I have met people from all four corners of the world. We unite people. Politicians divide. If I wanted to be a politician, I would do politics. We should only do what we’re good at. Sports and politics are two different categories. If you are intelligent, you understand.”

Looks like the beef between two superstars is far from over.
