Some Soccer Player Caught a Huge Pike and Shared It with His 17 Million Instagram Followers

You may not know him from the soccer pitch, but you’d recognize and angler if you saw one, right?

Here’s a name you may or may not know: Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He’s a Swedish soccer player who happened to sign a very expensive contract with Manchester United, a team favored by yours truly.

So when this photo flashed by in my Instagram timeline, I did a double take.

Now you’re probably even more likely to remember that name, huh?

Here’s what he said in the caption:

New PB caught with my friend @svartzonker during my vacation #pike

So he knows the lingo, can hold ’em with the best of ’em, and likely landed the fish himself, not like some “pansy soccer player” as some would expect. If his tough as nails reputation from the world of soccer is any indication, you can rest assured he caught that thing legitimately.

Oh, and he scored four minutes into his first preseason match. Not a bad week.
