Zlatan in the headlines for making controversial comments.
Where have we heard that before?
This time, the often outspoken PSG striker is in hot water for his postgame tirade following the club’s loss to Bordeaux.

After losing the match 3-2, in which Zlatan scored both of PSG’s goals, the big Swede went off in the tunnel, claiming France “does not deserve” to have a team like PSG.
He also called out referee Lionel Jeffredo, using some words that aren’t so family-friendly. The entire rant was caught on camera in the tunnel, and can be seen here.
Afterwards, Zlatan took to his Instagram to try and clear up any bad blood.
Regarding my comments after tonights game; they were not against France or the French people.
I spoke about football. I lost the game, I accept that, but I can’t accept when the referee doesn’t follow the rules. It’s not the first time, and I’m sick of it.
My sincere apologies if anyone was offended, or took it the wrong way.
Zlatan is arguably the most outspoken man in football, and this is far from the first time his words have gotten him into a bit of trouble. While he usually causes rifts with managers or players, now he must mend his relationship with the French people as a whole.
The loss to Bordeaux has bigger ramifications outside of Zlatan’s image for PSG, as the Parisians lost their spot at the top of the Ligue 1 table and now trail Lyon by two points.
