Zlatan to beat his 28 goal record from Milan

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is close to making his best season, by looking at goals made. On Sunday, he scored his 27th league goal in France. That means he is only one goal away from his record league season.

In the tenth minute Zlatan passed a ball to Javier Pastore right outside the penalty area. Nice goalkeeper David Ospina ran out to take the ball, but was completely deceived by Pastore.
Pastore then passed the ball to Jeremy Menez who was able to score 1-0 to PSG.

In the second half came Zlatan’s 27th league goal this season. Goalkeeper David Ospina was trying to fool Menez but got the ball too far from him. Ezequiel Lavezzi was fastest to the ball and Ospina had to make a foul against Lavezzi. The referee Tony Chapron gave PSG penalty and showed the goalkeeper the red card.

Joris Delle jumped in between Nice’s posts. Zlatan took care of the penalty and easily scored 2-0 at one of the goalkeepers poles, his 27th league goal this season. A few minutes before full time Zlatan got through Nice’s defense and passed Clement Chantome, who easily could score 3-0, his first goal of the season.

Zlatan is a goal away from touching his best season in terms of the number of league goals. Last year, he made 28 league goals for Milan. There remains five league games for PSG and Zlatan this season so he has a big chance to beat his current goal scoring record. PSG currently leads the league with nine points ahead of Marseille.

Ancelotti tired of Zlatan Ibrahimovic rumors

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was one of the Paris Saint-Germain players in last game and he also missed a penalty. After the game Zlatan Ibramhimovic got several really bad reviews when Paris Saint-Germain was eliminated from the French Cup on Wednesday. The Swede was totally cut in the French press and got reviews like 3/10.

Coach Carlo Ancelotti was critical of all the players’ actions and called the game a “disaster,” according to the French newspaper l’Equipe.
– Was it our worst match? Yes. Am I disappointed in the players? Yes. You can lose a match, but not in this way, ‘said the Italian afterwards.

The 53-year-old coach then punished the players by forcing them to spend an extra night in a hotel before the next match. On Saturday Ancelotti held a press conference ahead of tonight’s encounter with Nice. Then he got questions about transfer rumors, and it made him tired.

– We are focused on winning the championship, but in the media the only thing talked about are transfers. My situation is clear: We will finish the Ligue 1 and then we have plenty of time to discuss transfer of players, said Ancelotti. Most likely Ancelotti will not end the rumors that Zlatan is on his way away from the club. But hopefully his latest statements can make the newspapers put some end to the constant Zlatan Ibrahimovic rumors that have been floating around lately.

Zlatan rumors regarding transfer to Juventus

He refers to Milan’s purchase of Mario Balotelli last winter.
– Six months ago, no-one believed that Milan Balotelli was possible to get, but then they made the right sacrifice at the right moment. And the dream became reality.

 

All that is missing is just a ride on the express train before Zlatan Ibrahimovic is ready for Juventus, says Gazzetta dello Sport, and Raiola continues with more metaphors.
– I have already gone on the train, along with Zlatan. Anyone who wants to take their place beside us is welcome.

But the Swede is expensive.
– It’s too early to go into these details. I think right now that only Juventus and Milan are possible, says Raiola and defends Zlatan Ibrahimovic in regards to the comments Milan’s Adriano Galliani made the other day regarding that he lacks Thiago Silva more than Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

– With all due respect to the great defenders, Milan won their last league title with Ibrahimovic’s goals. If they then lost the following year, it was hardly his fault. And now I think that with Milan’s purchases of Mario, they have solved some problems.

It is left to see if there will be a Zlatan transfer to Juventus this summer.
