A statue of Zlatan Ibrahimovic outside Malmo FF’s stadium has been cut down by vandals, who appeared to use a saw to bring it down from ankles.
Only the two feet were left on the image, while the rest of the body was left resting on a security fence in the latest attack on the structure outside the Eleda Stadion.
The face of the statue was covered by a shirt with the Swedish badge on it, while the words “take away” were also sprayed on the ground close to it.

Ibrahimovic was present for the unveiling of the statue in October, but angered a section of Malmo fans, after becoming co-owner of rivals, Hammarby, in November.
The structure appeared to be set on fire in a video widely shared on social media, while the nose was cut off before Christmas.

Ibrahimovic started his career at Malmo before stints with Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and LA Galaxy.
The 38-year-old recently re-signed for AC Milan, and is in line to make his first appearance since returning to Serie A on Monday, when the Rossoneri meet Sampdoria.
