PSG to rest Ibrahimovic ahead of Champions League

10 September 2015, 21:39

Ibrahimovic suffered an abdominal injury on international duty with Sweden in a Euro 2016 qualifier against Russia last week and Paris coach Laurent Blanc admits the 33-year-old needs a rest.

"He is not in the best of states. He picked up an injury with Sweden, but he could have played against Bordeaux, although he won't. We have decided to rest him so he will be on top form against Malmo," Blanc told a press conference on Thursday ahead of Friday's match at the Parc des Princes.

Ibrahimovic is eager to play against Malmo, his hometown team and the club where he started his career before joining Ajax in 2001.

PSG are top of the Ligue 1 table with 12 points having won four games out of four.
