Kingsley Coman labels Zlatan Ibrahimovic as selfish

Football News

Kingsley Coman may have failed to make an impression during his short time in the Paris Saint-Germain first-team, but one player appears to have made quite an impression on him.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is one of those personalities that divides opinion. On the one hand, he is one of the most gifted footballers on the planet, on the other, he is a self-obsessed egomaniac.

Coman, who is currently enjoying a fruitful spell on loan to Bayern Munich from Juventus, appears to be leaning towards the latter.

The 19-year-old certainly looked like he had the potential to become as big a star as Ibrahimovic, becoming the youngest player in PSG history at 16 years, 8 months and 4 days in 2013.

But if he eventually makes it to the upper echelons of the game, it would be in no part down to Ibrahimovich, at least according to Coman, who claims the Swede was too selfish to lend a few words of advice on the PSG training pitch.

He told Kicker: “My relationship with Ibrahimovic was completely neutral. He is not the type of player to approach the younger players and give them advice. He only cares about himself.”

Dare to Zlatan

Of course, Ibrahimovic is certainly not a selfish man in all walks of life. The 34-year-old has made headlines for more than just winning titles, he's also done extensive charity work.

One of the best stories, from 2014, was when a team of intellectually disabled players asked Ibrahimovic for one of his match shirts in an attempt to raise $51,000 so they could partake in the INAS World Football Championships.

When asked, Ibrahimovic did not give them the shirt they desired, but he did donate the entire funds from his own pockets. What a guy!
