Laporta urges Barcelona fans to be patient with Ibrahimovic

Outgoing Barcelona president Joan Laporta has urged fans to stand by striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Laporta insists the unsettled Swede can still be a success at the Nou Camp.

He said: "Zlatan reminds me of Ronald Koeman. After a difficult year of adjustment, he ended up being decisive.

"The players who come from abroad need to adjust to the style of play at Barca and that does take time."
