ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC IS in Hong Kong with his Paris Saint Germain teammates for pre-season and, in typical Zlatan style, creating a stir.

The Swedish striker set out his goals for the week-long Asian trip, on Saturday, and spoke of the team’s European ambitions. He said, “We are going to have a good time and take part in a training camp to help us prepare for the trophies we will be competing for this season. One of them is the Champions League.

“We have won two French championships in a row and the Coupe de la Ligue. Everyone dreams of winning the Champions League, and so do I.”

On Sunday, he joined teammates Thiago Motta, Lucas Moura and Javier Pastore in a fashion show hosted by one of the club’s major sponsors, Hublot. Sunday was a down day but ‘Ibra’ was back training today and he uncorked some vintage skill in a kickabout on a shortened pitch.
