Ibrahimovic apologises for calling France a shit country.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and outbursts are co travellers. His latest rant is coming few days after he accused Chelsea’s players of acting like “babies” after he was sent off in PSG’s Champions League victory over the Blues.
The PSG striker passed derogatory remarks on France yesterday. He was filmed suggesting his club Paris Saint-Germain is too good for the country after his side suffered a 3-2 defeat at Bordeaux on Sunday.
“In 15 years I’ve never seen a [good] referee in this s— country. It doesn’t even deserve PSG. You’re not playing with amateurs.” He said.
The comment sparked outrage in France with French sports minister, Patrick Kanner calling on him to apologise.
The former Barcelona forward posted his apology via his Instagram account:
“Regarding my comments after tonight’s game; they were not against France or the French people. I spoke about football. I lost the game, I accept that but I can’t accept when the referee doesn’t follow the rules. It’s not the first time and I’m sick of it. My sincere apologies if anyone was offended or took it the wrong way.” The Swedish wrote.
