Gary Cahill: Zlatan Ibrahimovic Likes the Sound of His Own Voice

Gary Cahill: Zlatan Ibrahimovic Likes the Sound of His Own Voice

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill has tempted fate by taking a cheeky dig at Zlatan Ibrahimovic – the night before coming up against the daunting striker.

Cahill and his Blues team-mates take on Zlatan’s PSG at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday in the Champions League last-16 second-leg, with the French champions leading 2-1 from the first-leg.

Zlatan’s deflected free-kick was one of the three goals in the first tie, and the Swedish superstar will be looking to add to his tally of just one strike on English soil, which came in a last-16 match against Arsenal five years ago.

And on the eve of the game, Cahill has given short shrift to Ibrahimovic’s outspoken persona – the footballing equivalent of waving a red rag in front of a bull.

Maybe Chelsea will come out on top, and maybe Cahill will be man of the match.

But still, it’s probably not the wisest of moves to wind-up Zlatan less than 24 hours before facing him.

Will the centre-back regret the comments?
