Spending that free time
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed on social media that he is taking up a new unexpected hobby ahead of his return from injury at Manchester United.
The Swedish star has been ruled out of action through injury since around March with an ACL injury that threatened to be the downfall of his career.
Though, no one gave Zlatan that memo as the beast within wanted to return as quick as possible and return as strong as possible.
Ahead of schedule on several occasions, Zlatan is looking at making his return to football early in 2018 and signed a new deal with Man United in the summer.
The strikers one-year deal at Old Trafford ran out after last season but United were still keen to convince him to stay another year, with rehabilitation on them.
That lead to a new deal that will expire at the end of the current season, with the Red Devils hoping that he has a big effect in the second half of the season.
For now, the player has himself an interesting new hobby.
Posting on social media, it looks as though Zlatan has taken to horseriding as he posted what is assumed to be his new horse.
With the caption ‘Animal recognises animal: My new challenge’, this is something that will keep the Swedish star busy for the next few months!

While Zlatan Ibrahimovic will no doubt be looking to take back his place in the team for his return, it might not be that easy.
That is because Romelu Lukaku continues to impress and has been raking in the rave reviews over the past month.
