Zlatan meets his match when it comes to playground insults
Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic was up to his old tricks again during Tuesday night’s Champions League match against Anderlecht.
The Swede scored the equaliser for the home team but Anderlecht defender Sacha Kljestan preferred to talk about the remarks he made during the game.
“After a perfectly normal challenge, Ibra turned to me and provoked me, making a joke about my moustache, saying: ‘That really is terrible,'” Kljestan told Het Nieuwsblad.
“I responded by saying that he should think about his nose.”
Ibrahimovic has form for trying to wind up opponents during a match. In October of last year he was branded “arrogant, dirty and childish” by a player for the Faroe Islands.
“He elbowed me just before the interval and when we left the pitch for half-time I asked him what he was doing,” Faroe Islands captain Frodi Benjaminsen said.
“Just when we got inside he grabbed hold of me … He was belittling our team and me. What he said was not nice. He talked about where he is playing and how much he is earning. It was so childish.”
Sounds very much like Zlatan.
