Zlatan Ibrahimovic obnoxiously shut down a reporter who asked him a question about Danielle De Rossi, proving again he’s the biggest ego in soccer.

The LA Galaxy star was signing autographs for fans after his side’s 4-3 defeat to Seattle Sounders when he was approached by a reporter keen to ask his opinion on De Rossi’s recent move to Boca Juniors.

"Zlatan, can I ask you something?" he said, a video from TyC Sports shows. "They called me from Argentina, from the Boca de Seleccion program. Now, De Rossi …"

Before the reporter could finish his sentence, Ibrahimovic sharply asked: "Do you want a picture or not?" before walking away.

This isn’t the first time Ibrahimovic has displayed his ambivalence towards reporters.

In 2015 during his time with Paris Saint-Germain, Bleacher Report says the Swede told a journalist they were "low budget" after he was asked about his relationship with former team-mate Edinson Cavani.

According to the Guardian, he also told a reporter that same year that he "gets an extra-kick" out of doing things that hurt him when questioned about his business ventures off the field.

Ibrahimovic, who once compared himself to God, has scored 23 goals for LA Galaxy this season, as Guillermo Barros Schelotto’s side sit seventh in the Western Conference.
