Zlatan Ibrahimovic makes the ref come to him
January 30, 2015
The first rule of plane of existence is that Zlatan is in charge. This is an indisputable fact. To defy this rule is to make the most dangerous of enemies. Thankfully, the referee in PSG’s Ligue 1 match against Rennes was aware of this, so when Zlatan refused to approach him when he asked him to, he relented and went to Zlatan instead.

Normally, this type of insubordination would result in a booking for the player, but not for Zlatan. Instead, the ref was lucky that the Swede didn’t show him a yellow card made of his own eyelids.
This comes a week Saint Etienne’s Paul Baysse had the temerity to challenge Zlatan asking who he was by doing the same to him. Zlatan did not like this and Baysse’s teammate was clever enough to side with Zlatan on the matter.
