Since he left in 2016,has criticised Ligue 1 for being boring despite the presence of Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Kylian Mbappe. In a recent interview, Ibrahimovic wasn’t afraid to criticise the French top division and the stars who are now competing in it for a loss of intrigue and entertainment value. He made some bold claims about France and Ligue 1 while ignoring the presence of Messi, Neymar, and Mbappe.
According to Ibrahimovic, Everything has gotten worse since I left France. You no longer have anything to discuss, he said, because France needs me. France doesn’t need me. Even having Messi, Neymar, and Mbappe does you no good. Why? because God is not a part of you. In 2016, Ibrahimovic ended a four-year spell at Paris Saint-Germain by signing for Manchester United on a free transfer.
He has established himself as one of the most endearing footballers ever, as well as one of the most talented and successful forwards in the history of the position. He scored 156 goals for PSG in 180 appearances. The Swede, although still being the loudest person in the room, has yet to step foot on a football field this season as he recovers from ACL surgery he had at the end of the previous term.
