PSG: Ibrahimovic claims to have offered himself as sports director


The former PSG striker (2012-2016) writes in his book, to be published in January in France, to have offered his services to the Paris management

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is in promotion.

The Swede wrote a book ("Adrenaline. My unpublished stories") in collaboration with Luigi Garlando, journalist at Gazzetta dello Sport, available from January in France.

After a long interview with the former PSG striker at Corriere della Serra on Wednesday, it is the turn of L'Équipe this Thursday to broadcast extracts from the book.

In one chapter, “Ibra” evokes human management within the club in the capital.

And, above all, its offer for the summer of 2021.

A post shared by Zlatan Ibrahimović (@iamzlatanibrahimovic)

“It's true, I offered myself to PSG, but not as a footballer. As a sports director, writes Ibrahimovic. I called Nasser Al-Khelaïfi (…) Nasser laughed, but he didn't say no. (…) Raiola agreed with me: if I had not extended my contract, the role of manager at Paris-Saint-Germain, that would have been the good future. Even the PSG players I spoke to thought so. One said to me:

"Zlatan, only you can restore order and bring discipline to the team. "


" Zlatan, if it was you, that thing in the locker room would not have taken place " 


As he already explained in his interview to the Italian press on Wednesday, Ibrahimovic also details having advised Kylian Mbappé to leave PSG.

"There is not enough discipline and Mbappé needs it to improve, grow and take the next step," continues the Swede.

In Paris now, it's impossible because there aren't the right people.

(…) I have nothing personal against Leonardo.

On the contrary, I like him. Indeed, it is he who made me come to PSG.

I can't blame him for anything but I know the difference between us: I don't ask, I order ”.

Not sure that the PSG appreciates very long the orchestrated communication of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
