Zlatan Ibrahimovic: France is a s**t country

The Swede was at the heart of another refereeing storm as PSG slumped to a shock defeat

ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC HAS described France as a “s**t country” following Paris Saint-Germain’s 3-2 defeat against Bordeaux on Sunday.

The Swede scored twice as the Ligue 1 champions twice came from behind to level the match, though a last-minute goal from Diego Rolan consigned Laurent Blanc’s men to a defeat that further damages their title aspirations.

Following the game, in which referee Lionel Jeffredo made a number of contentious decisions against the Parc des Princes side, the Swede was caught on camera appearing to call the assistant referee a “f***** a*****e” before launching into a rant.

“In 15 years I’ve never seen a [good] referee in this s**t country,” the Swede said. “It doesn’t even deserve PSG. You’re not playing with amateurs.”

Ibrahimovic was at the centre of another major controversy earlier this week when he branded the Chelsea side “11 babies” after he was dismissed from PSG’s Champions League meeting with Jose Mourinho’s side.

While the Parisians were able to come out on top on the away goals rule after extra-time against the Blues, they have only won one of their last seven away matches in Le Championnat, in which they have still yet to top the standings after a completed round of fixtures this season.
