Paris Saint-Germain Star Reveals How He Almost Come To Blows With Zlatan Ibrahimovic
One of Paris Saint-Germain's stars has revealed that he almost came to blows with Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic during their time together at the Ligue 1 club.
Before moving to Old Trafford, the former Sweden international spent four successful years in Paris, scoring 156 goals in 180 appearances for the Qatari-owned club.
Frenchman Adrien Rabiot has now admitted that there were times when things got heated with Ibrahimovic in the changing room, and recalled two occasions when the pair almost climbed into each other.
"The first encounter with Ibrahimovic took place during a friendly match in the United States," Rabiot told Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport.
"Zlatan got pissed at me because I played stupidly. But he had lost the ball, and I had to take a card to compensate for his mistake.
"I became angry and insulted Zlatan. It was not smart. The other incident was in training. We were close to fighting.
"But Zlatan was annoyed that day. He likes guys like me, who have character, and we are friends now."
Ibrahimovic picked up a cruciate ligament injury in the UEFA Europa League last season, and is only expected to return to action in January.
