Zlatan Statue in Rosengården?

Sweden’s superstar striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, may soon be set in stone. If the Social Democrats in his hometown district have their way, a statue of the famous soccer player will be erected in the much-discussed housing area of Rosengården in the southern city of Malmö.

The statue would be “a positive symbol for Rosengården,” which often enters the headlines as a synonym for crime and failed integration, TT reports.
