At the age of 40, fighting for the Scudetto and with chances of reaching the knockout stages of the Champions League, Zlatan Ibrahimovic surprised everyone by putting a tremendous idea into shape and imposing discipline on Paris Saint Germain.
In his new book, entitled “Adrenaline, my Indian stories”, written in collaboration with Gazetta dello Sport journalist Luigi Garlando, Zlatan Ibrahimovic revealed that he proposed to PSG owner Nasser Al Khelaifi to dismiss Leonardo and take his place as sports director of Paris Saint Germain.
“It’s true, I offered myself to PSG in 2021, but not as a footballer, it was as a sports director. I called President Al Khelafi and said: If I don’t renew my contract with Milan, go to PSG and put your team in order “, Ibrahimovic confessed.
Along the same lines, Zlatan recalled: “Nasser started to laugh, but he never said no. Mino Raiola also agreed. He knew that if he did not renew with Milan, the managerial role at PSG would have been fine. Even the PSG players supported me. One spoke to me privately: “Zlatan, this with you would not have happened in the locker room.”
To close, Ibrahimovic said: “There is not much discipline at PSG and Mbapp has the need to improve, grow and move on to the next stage. In Paris, now, it is impossible because it does not have the good people to grow. If there was more rigor, no one would be late for training, everyone would run for the team … If I were there, I wouldn’t say what to do, but I would send them. “
