Published Add your comment

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's recent outburst against Paris Saint-Germain fans has led to former players displeased with the lack of humbleness.

Paris Saint-Germain's recent 2-1 home victory against Nancy had many PSG faithful booing the players.

 The club trailed at half-time against the relegation zoned club.  The Swedish international then did what he does best, netting two to complete the come from behind win.

After the game, Ibrahimovic said: "People are very demanding in Paris.

"It is a bit bizarre when you think of what things were like before.  Because, before, there was nothing.

"Try and play these games yourselves and then you will understand.

"We always want to win playing good football, but it is not easy. We do our best.  "Sometimes we don't achieve the objectives we set ourselves. That's life."

However, the most recent form of criticism Ibrahimovic has come under at PSG is from former coach and title winner Luis Fernandez.

Fernandez stated: "He needs to show a bit of humility, a bit of respect.  He says what he wants, but maybe he doesn't know the history of French football.

"The most important thing is to respect the history of the club.

"Zlatan is disappointed at being booed, but everyone has been booed in that stadium, even me."

Although Ibrahimovic may come in for a lot of criticism and negative publicity, he 

was able to show a stellar sportsmanship  attitude during the match against Nancy. After Lucas Moura kicked the ball into the face of Nancy keeper Damien Gregorini,  Nancy then kicked the ball out so the keeper could receive treatment. 

In the following attack PSG did not return the ball, as is fair play custom, but won a free-kick that Ibrahimovic would claim. The Swede then gave the ball back to Nancy in a brilliant show of sportsmanship.
