Two rounds remain of Ligue 1, but Paris Saint-Germain’s 1-0 victory against Lyon means that the Paris Club now has a seven point lead over Marseille at the top. This allowed Zlatan Ibrahimovic and his teammates to begin the celebration already on Sunday.
The party was suspended temporarily for Zlatan Ibrahimovic. TV images in France showed how Zlatan suddenly scolded sporting director Leonardo in the dressing room in the midst of cheers scenes.
– No, there was no problem between Ibra and Leo. Zlatan Ibrahimovic had to go to doping control and was a bit annoyed. He wanted to celebrate with the team, says manager Carlo Ancelotti.
The TV images heard how Zlatan screaming to Leonardo:
– The other day I had to wait for 20 minutes and did not come out from there. You always ruin everything!, Zlatan said
When Zlatan Ibrahimovic later met the press, he toned down the whole thing.
– 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 celebrate with the team. It was unprofessional, but nothing against Leonardo says Zlatan.
