Ibra not ruling out PSG exit

23 May 2013, 08:08

Stockholm - Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic admitted Wednesday that a departure from the Ligue 1 champions could not be ruled out if the club continues to lack stability behind the scenes.

The celebrations of PSG's first French title in 19 years have been overshadowed by uncertainty surrounding the future of Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti, who last weekend admitted publicly that he wishes to leave amid speculation that he has been lined up to replace Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid.

"We hear talk about the coach and of a heap of players who could be coming or going. I am not used to that," Ibrahimovic told Swedish journalists.

Former Ajax, Juventus, Internazionale and Barcelona striker Ibrahimovic, who signed from AC Milan last summer, has scored 29 goals in PSG's title-winning campaign and was last weekend named Ligue 1's Player of the Year.

"In Barcelona and Milan, there is more stability," he added, in quotes reported by Aftonbladet. "There, the coach stays until he is sacked."

Ibrahimovic, 31, stated clearly that he wanted Ancelotti to stay for a second full season in charge at the Parc des Princes.

"It is clear that everyone wants to keep Ancelotti. He is probably the only coach who has helped me have such a good relationship with the rest of the team. It is not just me, everyone feels the same way," Svenska Dagbladet reported him as saying.

"It is not just Ancelotti who would go, but also the seven or eight people in his entourage. It would leave a huge gap. The players who arrived a year ago want security and stability and to feel wanted."

As to his future, Ibrahimovic said: "We will see. Every time I have changed club, I have done so when I said I would stay put.

"Anything can happen, even if I intend to stay. The way things are just now, a lot of things could happen."
