During Saturday night or in the early hours of Sunday, the nose was sawed off the Zlatan statue and the effigy was also covered in silver paint, media including SVT report.
Since being unveiled in the presence of the world-famous footballer in October, the statue has been damaged on several occasions.
At the end of November, Zlatan announced his investment in rival team Hammarby, angering many fans of his hometown club Malmö FF.
December has already seen paint poured over the statue and a foot sawn off, with this weekend’s incident adding to the list of crunching tackles against the Zlatan statue.
Police said on Sunday they would investigate the latest instance of vandalism.
“We have not received any reports but have been informed that damage has been seen by the public. We will go out there and make observations this morning,” Katarina Rusin, a press spokesperson for the police in the southern Sweden region, told SVT.
