Douchez, speaking with France Football, spoke of Ibra's first day with the club.
He said: "He's out of the ordinary. I met him the day he joined us when we were in camp in New York. He arrived at noon, we were at a table, he landed from I do not know where, definitely a vacation.
"He said hello to all, he is polite you know (he smiles). We saw an impressive person arrive, we knew that he was two metres and that he was sturdy. He's a character apart.
'If one does the same, it is because he deserves it. Many players tried to make the buzz like him, but it did not work. He's an atypical person. Of Ibra, there are not two. Anyway, it's simple, the guy, he's called Zlatan! From the moment that one recognizes a person simply by his first name, it means that he is apart.
"In the locker room, he was a great team-mate. A competitor, someone who is enormously demanding with himself, also with others and what surrounds the team. He has an eye on everything. We learn a lot from these players.
