Zlatan Ibrahimovic expressed his state of mind concerning the French league in a recent interview with Canal Plus. The forward was televised making some exclusive controversial remarks against the league which he spent four seasons with Paris Saint-Germain.
The Swedish International was one of French football’s biggest names during his four-year spell at Paris Saint-Germain, scoring 156 goals in 180 games and winning 12 trophies – including four consecutive Ligue 1 titles before leaving to join Manchester United in July 2016.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic who is known for his brutally honest interviews said that French Football is not a topic of interest anymore and without him, the league has been barren and is unable to produce any spectacles,
“Since I left France there is nothing more interesting to talk about”, Ibrahimovic said when speaking to Canal Plus (via TMW).
France needs me and I don’t need France. Even though they have Messi, Mbappé and Neymar, it’s not enough. Why? because there is no more God.”
There’s no denying Ibrahimovic is one of the most entertaining footballers of his generation. The 121-cap international, 41, has scored more than 500 goals at club level and won league titles in the Netherlands, Italy, Spain and France. He’s also won trophies in England.
