Ibrahimovic denounces Mbappé entourage: ‘Who do they think they are? Shut up’
Zlatan Ibrahimovic argues that Kylian Mbappé was wrong to stay at Paris Saint-Germain. According to the Swede, the 23-year-old outfielder is letting his surroundings guide him.
The story is familiar: Mbappé could have gone to Real Madrid, but opted for a longer stay at PSG. Ibrahimovic has his doubts about that decision. “As a person I don’t know him well, as a player he is fantastic. But when you lose your discipline, you lose your own identity,” he told Canal+. Mbappé has made it difficult for himself, according to the AC Milan striker. “He made the right choice for PSG, but not for himself,” he said.
“He got into a situation where he became more important than the club. The club gave him the keys. But nobody is bigger than a club,” Ibrahimovic said. The Frenchman’s entourage is also criticised by Ibracadabra. “So his parents have become lawyers, agents and coaches. From one thing comes another. That’s a problem. Then you lose self-discipline and yourself,” said the 41-year-old striker. “Nowadays, with the new generation, parents think they are the stars. They talk to newspapers. Who do they think they are? Shut up. It’s up to the son, the player, to show it.”
