PSG veteran Thiago Motta: Ibrahimovic will talk straight with Man Utd teammates

PSG veteran midfielder Thiago Motta has spoken of being a teammate of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Motta says the Manchester United striker was a huge influence inside the PSG locker room.

He told Corriere dello Sport: "Ibrahimovic, I knew him at PSG. He joined six months after me. A great character. A man, beyond the player who knows what he wants.

"He is a character, knows when to say something, he tells you. I got along very well with him. He's like that, direct. And in the dressing room, he was one of our leaders. Sometimes he was very hard, but it was because he loved winning. I understood what he wanted."
