The post went viral as fans were trying to figure out which La Liga side Ibrahimovic would join but it turned out to simply be a marketing stunt to promote a betting site.
Ibrahimovic then posted another clip on social media today explaining the original video.
“You’re welcome Spain,” Ibrahimovic says.
“Finally Bethard is live and we welcome all the Spanish players to our site.”
Fans were furious with the revelation, with one simply calling him a ‘troll’.
“Zlatan scammed the whole football world," another said
“Don’t forget that betting is ruining so many families,” some discouraged Ibrahimovoic's idea of promoting a betting site.
“You always try to show off, being so brave.. but in these occasions is when you should take a step forward and fight against this drug.
“Barking dogs never bite.”
