Manchester United star Paul Pogba shows off Kung Fu kick as he battles Zlatan Ibrahimovic to see who can get leg higher

The Swedish striker grabbed the headlines when he showed off his incredible athleticism during LA Galaxy's 2-0 defeat against Atlanta on Sunday.

Ibra, 36, performed an outrageous kung-fu kick to play a perfectly-placed through ball to a team-mate. 

But whatever the veteran forward can do, it appears Pogba can do better.

The £89million Frenchman took to Instagram to perform a remarkable high-kick on a punchbag during training.

Alongside the slow-mo video was the caption: "Zlatan you think you the only one who can put your leg high."


The LA Galaxy striker will be quick to remind Pogba that he once held a black-belt in taekwondo as a 17-year-old.

In 2010 he would also receive an honorary black-belt from the Italian national taekwondo team.


'SICK OF IT' Was Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s ‘sky high’ World Cup tweet just a marketing ploy?


Ibrahimovic is already hugely popular in the States – helped when he scored a remarkable double in his LA Galaxy debut.

And after calling it a day on the field, he suggested he wants to crack Hollywood and boldly claimed: "I am better than Ivan Drago."


When quizzed on whether he could follow in the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger, he was typically modest.

Zlatan US radio: "I think leading man – something like Rambo, Bourne Identity​, because I think I have the skills to do those things.

“Somebody says I could be like the bad guy in the movie, because my English is like Ivan Drago.​ But I see myself better than that.”
