LA Galaxy and Swedish international footballer Zlatan Ibrahimović made his first appearance on Twitch playing Fortnite with friends, and joked with viewers about making a donation to the multimillionaire.
The growth of Fortnite has seen numerous A list celebrities make their first appearance on live streaming website Twitch, including Drake and Tottenham Hotspur player Dele Alli.
Dele Alli actually set up his own Twitch channel, and played with a number of his Tottenham teammates, while rappers Drake and Travis Scott played with Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, the top Fortnite streamer.
Zlatan himself hasn’t started up his own channel yet, but was live when playing with his friend ‘KekGs‘, a popular streamer on Twitch.
And the stream attracted quite a bit of attention thanks to Zlatan promoting it as well as his new team, LA Galaxy.
He is best known of course for his time at Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona, and has been awarded Sweden’s best male player award, the Guldbollen, 11 times since 2005.

He wasn’t so sharp on the sticks with Fortnite, but, always the entertainer, he made up for it with his personality on stream.
Asking for donations so his friend can improve his internet and set up his own stream, he then says: “But, let’s be honest, I can buy the whole internet company and give it to him.”
Hopefully we will see Zlatan set up his own Twitch stream soon, and maybe even duo up with Tottenham stars Dele Alli and Harry Kane, who are not too shabby at the battle royale game.
