Zlatan Ibrahimovic broke down in tears in a press conference ahead of his Sweden return when asked about how his children feel about him playing international football again
The 39-year-old will play for his country for the first time in five years this week as Sweden take on Kosovo and Georgia in two 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
But when asked what his family thought about him joining up with the national team once again, Ibrahimovic failed to hold back the waterworks as he revealed his youngest son Vincent cried when he left to join up with the squad.

Before breaking down, Zlatan said: ‘Vincent really cried when I left him. But now it’s okay.’
Vincent is the youngest of two boys Ibrahimovic has with long-term partner Helena Seger.
Speaking about his family in the press conference, the Swedish striker said: ‘I have two little ones at home who kick the ball, my wife asks me to tell them to stop but I say no, we can buy new things if they break them.’
Ibrahimovic has not played for Sweden since the 2016 European Championships and is looking to build on his 62 goals in 116 caps
The 39-year-old is now highly likely to represent his country in this summer’s European Championships which are currently set to take place across the UK, with the forward in the form of his career for AC Milan.
