Ibrahimovic Says Chelsea Players Acted Like ‘Babies’Latest News, Sports Thursday, March 12th, 2015
…Crash Out Of Champions League
Chelsea’s players acted like “babies” during the incident that led to Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s red card on Wednesday, the Paris St-Germain striker says.
The Swede was sent off for a tackle on Oscar after 31 minutes but PSG survived the last hour of normal time and extra time to knock Chelsea out of the Champions League last 16 on away goals.
“When I got the red card all the Chelsea players come around,” he said.
“It felt like I had a lot of babies around me.”
Blues players surrounded Dutch referee Bjorn Kuipers following Ibrahimovic’s lunging tackle on Brazilian midfielder Oscar.
“I don’t know if I have to get angry or start to laugh. For me when I saw the red card I was like ‘the guy doesn’t know what he’s doing’,” the PSG forward added.
Ibrahimovic, 33, also suggested Oscar feigned injury in the challenge: “I don’t know if he was acting afterwards. Doesn’t matter. We won the game, we went through and let’s see what happens.”
The game at Stamford Bridge finished 2-2 on Wednesday and 3-3 on aggregate with PSG going through to the quarter-finals on away goals.
