The Sweden captain is in the city, along with members of the national team ahead of the World Cup qualifier against Kazakhstan.

Ibrahimović started his career with Malmö before moving to Ajax Amsterdam in 2001 and since then, the 30-year-old has become one of the most accomplished footballers in the world.

"It is a great honour, it means that I have done something during my career," Ibra was quoted as saying by France Football.

"We usually say that you cannot become a legend before death. But I am a living legend - at least in Malmö."

Ibrahimović has scored 33 goals in 81 matches for his country.
