AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic already got a taste of the life of a singer at the San Remo music festival in Italy and will now dedicate himself to acting in a new ‘Asterix and Obelix’ movie.

Reports that the Swede would play a role in ‘Asterix and Obelix: The Silk Road’ seemed to be confirmed when Ibrahimovic posted a photo on his social media that said ‘Antivirus’ the name of the character he will play.

The 39-year-old footballer performed at the Italian San Remo festival in March, where he sang in a duet with Bologna coach Sinisa Mihajlovic and said he would like to try acting.

But the news that he would be cast in the Asterix film, directed by Guillaume Canet and slated for release in 2022, came as a surprise.

The forward is Milan’s top scorer with 17 goals in all tournaments this season. He has yet to agree on a new contract as the current one expires at the end of the season.
