Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has criticised the Chelsea players who acted like 11 babies during his controversial sending off in PSGs 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge last night (11 March).
The 33-year-old Sweden international was shown a straight red card for a lunging tackle on Brazilian play-maker Oscar in the 31st minute. Nine of the 11 Chelsea team subsequently surrounded Dutch referee Bjorn Kuipers and Ibrahimovic in his post-match press conference expressed his dismay at such a reaction from the Blues.
I dont know if I have to get angry or start to laugh but for me when I saw the red card I was like the guy doesnt know what hes doing, or maybe he saw something else, he said.
But that is not the worst. The worst is when I see when I get the red card all the Chelsea players come around. That for me, I dont know, it felt like I had 11 babies around me, he added.
Despite Ibrahimovics red card in the 31st minute, PSG managed to twice come from behind to draw the match 2-2 and progress at Chelseas expense to the Champions League quarter finals on the away goals rule.
