Zlatan Ibrahimovic claims it would ‘not be possible’ for him to move to the Bundesliga given his commitments to Paris Saint-Germain, although the Swedish striker admits he does have a soft spot for Jurgen Klopp and Borussia Dortmund.
Ibrahimovic was seen joking with Klopp at January’s Ballon d’Or gala and asked the Dortmund manager when he would be bringing him to the Westfalenstadion, and the Sweden captain has now lavished him with further praise.
Klopp, says Ibrahimovic, is ‘cool’ and has Dortmund playing some nice football, but the 32-year-old forward adds that he will not be leaving the Parc des Princes to pursue a transfer to BVB.
"Jurgen Klopp is a cool guy. I like how Dortmund play very much and Klopp is a bit crazy, but I can't play for them," Ibrahimovic told Sky Deutschland.
"It's not possible for me to join the Bundesliga. I have a contract at Paris and I want to play here for a long time."
Ibrahimovic, meanwhile, all but confirmed PSG’s passage into the quarter-final of this season’s Champions League with two goals in the opening half against Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday evening.
Laurent Blanc’s side were 3-0 up by half-time, with Ibrahimovic scoring a penalty and smashing in a stunner from outside the box after Blaise Matuidi’s opener, while Yohan Cabaye completed the rout in the closing stages.
