Zlatan Ibrahimovic has penalty saved by Joe Hart

Published 5 Comments

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored one of the best goals of all time against Joe Hart while playing for Sweden against England back in 2012, but the Paris Saint-Germain striker couldn’t beat the Manchester City goalkeeper from 12 yards on Wednesday night.

The 34-year-old had the chance to put PSG ahead from the penalty spot after referee Milorad Mažić deemed Bacary Sagna’s challenge on David Luiz as a foul, but his spot-kick was poor.

Hart had obviously done his homework beforehand and dived to his right to deny Zlatan his 39th goal of the season. (Scroll down this page to watch the video).

Zlatan desperate to win Champions League

Speaking ahead of this evening’s match, Ibrahimovic’s agent Mino Raiola revealed his star client is still desperate to win the Champions League.

“Zlatan knows what he wants to do,” Raiola told RMC, per Goal. “He wants to play in the final of the Champions League, and if possible to win it.


“We’re not going to be pressed and we’ll take the right decision. Zlatan has desire and he is motivated. He has no need for a financial motivation to continue; he wants to prove that he can still play at the highest level.

“Zlatan has priorities, such as finishing the season well and playing a good European Championship. The rest is up to me.”
