When Terrence Boyd received the coveted kit of Zlatan Ibrahimovic a couple of weeks ago, no one heard about the dramatic aftermath. That’s because Zlatan stepped in and fixed the situation before it could get worse.
Apparently, Boyd’s teammate and RB Leipzig captain Daniel Frahn has asked for Zlatan’s kit as he was subbed off. But Zlatan denied him. “Sorry, but I have promised it to this young man [Boyd],” Zlatan said.

That didn’t sit well with the club captain. He said it was “disrespectful” of Boyd — and as a new player at a club, that last thing Boyd would want was to upset the captain. As the young striker was apologizing in the locker room to Frahn, the mighty Zlatan walked in and immediately settled the dispute:
"I had a second, dry jersey with me,” he said. “The captain can have this one.”
