Toe Poke Daily: Zlatan shares the secrets of his game ... with Galaxy academy kids
The Toe Poke Daily is here every day to bring you all the weirdest stories, quirkiest viral content and top trolling that the internet has to offer, all in one place.
You can't teach size. You can't teach talent. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has a lot of attributes that you're either born with or you aren't.
But that's not to say there's nothing young players can learn from the LA Galaxy forward. And those in the Galaxy's academy got themselves an education last week from the School of Zlatan.
At first glance, we have some criticisms. For one, when dealing with young, impressionable minds, we'd encourage Professor Zlatan to teach the beautiful game using his feet, not his hands. Let's not confuse the youngsters.
Upon closer inspection, however, we learn that Ibrahimovic is imparting his wisdom on positioning on the Galaxy's academy products.
Regardless of what the future holds for these Galaxy youths, the day Zlatan came to training will surely be one they'll remember for many years to come.
Beckham scouts Spurs
Speaking of the Galaxy, former Los Angeles legend David Beckham is on a world tour with fellow Inter Miami owner Jorge Mas.
First the pair reportedly were in Barcelona, home to Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi (obviously). That's interesting because the Blaugrana pair have been linked with a move to the MLS club that will make its debut in 2020.
Then they were off to Paris, meeting with Paris Saint-Germain Nasser Al-Khelaifi. And, as you may have deduced, the Parc des Princes is home to another player Miami is reportedly interested in: Edinson Cavani.
Now the Inter Miami owners are in London, where they took in Tottenham's 4-0 win over Crystal Palace at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

So, the obvious question remains: Just which Spurs star are they hoping to bring to MLS?
