Zlatan Ibrahimovic himself was a big part of the preparatory work for Jérémy Ménez victory goal in the game when he drove up the attack and served Thiago Motta who in turn pass to Ménez at the far end of the penalty area. The Frenchman was then ice cold when he put the ball in the right corner.
The title marked the first triumph for PSG’s new club management who invested huge money to take the club to the top. Last summer was the biggest effort by, among others, Thiago Silva, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ezequiel Lavezzi purchased.
The trio then delivered what was expected this first season. A solicitation of Zlatan usually supposed too, as you know, mean title guarantee.
Since Zlatan Ibrahimovic left Malmö FF for Ajax in 2001, he has become champion his first season in every club he has come to. This year’s league title is Zlatan Ibrahimovics tenth title in total (including the two Juventus later stripped after the Calciopoli scandal). An unlikely dream limit. The ten titles have come in six different clubs spread over four different countries. An amazing hindsight on the twelve professional seasons striker made. For PSG, it was the third triumph in Ligue 1. They came earlier seasons 1985/86 and 1993/94.
There have been a lot of rumors around Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the last month. Both the French and Italian media have placed Zlatan Ibrahimovic in Juventus. A speculation that hardly subsided when images from PSG’s golden celebration was broadcast.
It seemed Zlatan Ibrahimovic ended up in a violent quarrel with sporting director Leonardo inside the locker room. According to Zlatan he was summoned to a doping control center during the celebration with his teammates.
– I waited for 20 minutes but no one came to pick me up. Then when I wanted to celebrate with my team, they came and picked me up. I have been waiting for nine months on this, I wanted to be with the team. It was unprofessional, but nothing against Leonardo said Ibrahimovic.
Now Zlatan Ibrahimovic also assures, despite all the speculation, he stays in the PSG for another season.
– This is a good start at a new club. The future belongs to us. We can play better than this, if we can win the league like this. Only God knows what could happen then, says 31-year-old.
– I have two years left on the contract and I am a professional and respectful of my contract. If nothing happens I will remain here, of course.
Ibrahimovic signed a contract until 2015 when he left Milan for PSG last summer.
