TT NEWS AGENCY/AFP / Johan NILSSON The fire-damaged statue of Zlatan Ibrahimovic in Malmo Swedish footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic Thursday filed a "hate crime" complaint Thursday after being the target of vandalism and racists threats, police said, a day after the star announced his part ownership in football club Hammarby. A statue of the player in Malmo was attacked with fire and paint while the word "Judas" was daubed across the front door of his residence in Stockholm. The perpetrators of the threatening acts have not been identified but "Ibra" angered fans of Malmo FF (MFF) -- the club where he started his professional career in 1999 -- on Wednesday when he announced he had bought a share in rival club Hammarby. In Malmo, several people, most of them wearing hoods, vandalised a statue of Ibrahimovic that was unveiled just two months ago. Near the monument they wrote the words "Cigani do" ("Gypsy" in Bosnian, and "die" in Swedish) in spray paint. Born in Malmo, Ibrahimovic is the son of a Bosnian father and Croatian mother. Videos posted on social media showed masked people lighting fires and aiming them at the statue. There was no significant damage and a protective barrier has since been put up around it. "An investigation has been opened into vandalism and threats with suspected hate crime motive. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the plaintiff," a police spokesman told AFP.


TT News Agency/AFP / Johan NILSSON It was all smiles between Ibrahimovic (R) and the Malmo fans in October when the statue was unveiled Earlier on Wednesday, angry supporters had slipped a toilet seat on to one of the statues arms. Hammarby, a Stockholm-based team playing alongside MFF in Swedens top league, announced Wednesday morning that Ibrahimovic had bought around 25 percent of the shares in the club. "Hes turned his back on the city and what made him who he is," Kaveh Hosseinpour, vice-president of the MFF supporters club, told broadcaster TV4. At noon on Thursday, nearly 7,000 people had signed an online petition calling for the immediate removal of his statue in Malmo. "How could you do this to us?" one outraged signatory wrote while another proclaimed that "everything cant just be about money".

Ibrahimovic, whose contract with Los Angeles Galaxy expires at the end of the year, has not announced whether he will continue his career at another club.
