Mauricio Pochettino ‘respects’ Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s opinion but refuses to comment on the Milan striker’s remarks over lack of discipline at PSG.
In his new book ‘Andrenaline: My untold stories,’ Ibrahimovic revealed that he had offered his services to become PSG’s sports director in order to restore discipline at the club.
Ibrahimovic spent four seasons in Paris, scoring 156 goals in 180 matches before joining Manchester United in 2016.
“I respect everyone’s opinion. You know me, I am someone who respects the opinions, the ideas,” Pochettino said at a press conference when asked to comment on Ibrahimovic’s claims.
“The capacity of each one to have his vision of things and to project himself in the future.
“I have no comments to make. I’m just talking about what’s going on here, what we’re doing, the reality.
“For me, I have total respect no matter who it is, but I don’t like to talk about what other people think.”
Ibrahimovic returned to Milan in January 2020 from LA Galaxy. He was close to joining Napoli, but his move to the Stadio San Paolo collapsed after Carlo Ancelotti’s sacking.
He has scored six goals in nine appearances with the Rossoneri this season.
The Swede’s contract with the Rossoneri expires at the end of the season, but he is expected to extend his stay at the club until June 2023.
