Zlatan Ibrahimovic is many things—and to the long list of adjectives we can now add resourceful, as he solved an argument over a shirt swap.

The Swede was representing Paris Saint-Germain in a pre-season friendly against Red Bull Leipzig earlier in the summer, and he was substituted before the match ended.

But according to FIFA's report, which emerged this week, two players wanted his jersey.

According to the report:

When Ibra was subbed during PSG’s 4-2 defeat, opposite captain Daniel Frahn rushed over to get his No. 10 jersey, only to have his request politely denied by the 32-year-old. “Sorry, but I have promised it to this young man,” said Ibrahimovic as he handed the shirt to Frahn’s new strike partner Terrence Boyd.

Zlatan's shirt looked set to spark an argument as Frahn then accused Boyd of disrespect.

But there's only person who can solve an argument about Ibrahimovic, and that is Zlatan himself:

Fortunately for all involved, as Boyd was apologizing, in walked Ibrahimovic – with another of his jerseys for Frahn.

"I had a second, dry jersey with me,” said the Malmo native. “The captain can have this one."

He may have to start carrying several shirts around with him wherever he goes, just so everyone can get one.
