In his confabulation
“A betrayal became a betrayal and a provocation,” Kaveh Hosseinpouraid.
“So he basically stuck a knife in our backs, and then he came along with a sword and chopped off our heads.
“The statue is completely worthless now, just a piece of junk. The best way to solve that was if it was removed and put somewhere in Stockholm or something.
“Every game we go to, we are going to pass Zlatan knowing that there is a statue of an investor in Hammarby, not the statue of the football player Zlatan Ibrahimovic anymore.”
May the soul of the erected Statue rest in peace .
