PARIS Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has again insisted he is not unhappy with life in France following his recent outburst.
The Sweden international was caught on camera saying France is “a s*** country” after becoming incensed at the officials during PSG’s defeat to Bordeaux.
Ibrahimovic’s remarks caused uproar from some high-profile figures, including the Prime Minister, though he maintained his comments were only concerned with football.
And the 33-year-old has now stated he would never have considered moving to Ligue 1 if he harboured any ill-feeling towards the country.
“Everything that was written on that subject was wrong,” he told Telefoot. “I feel very good in France. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t have come here and I wouldn’t have signed a new contract.”
Ibrahimovic scored another remarkable goal in Sweden’s 2-0 win over Moldova, reacting quickly to head goalkeeper Ilie Pavel Cebanu’s clearance into the unguarded net.
“I found myself facing the keeper and I saw the ball come at me,” he explained. “I put my head on it but, to be honest, I thought it would miss. It’s not an ordinary goal.”
