Paris Saint-Germain star Zlatan Ibrahimovic has told 16-year-old Norwegian player Martin Odegaard that to become independent and successful in his career, he must cut ties with his father.
Speaking to Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, Ibrahimovic said, ‘It’s not easy to say, but he has a father that controls everything completely. First he must grow up and become a man and then get rid of his father.’
He also hailed the youngster’s performance between Norway and Sweden, at the Ullevaal Stadion.
‘He did well, played straightforward and didn’t lose many balls. He has a long time to get even better. It’s good that he’s already playing for his country.’ He stated.
Odegaard who made a move from Stromsgodset to Real Madrid in January became the youngest debutant in the history of the club.
