Edmilson warns Lucas: Stay smart around that arrogant superstar Ibra!

The former Lyon defender had words of advice for his compatriot following his multi-million pound move to the Parc des Princes suggesting he should be wary of his team-mate
Retired Brazil international centre-back Edmilson has taken to Twitter to warn Lucas Moura to "stay smart" around Sweden captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic as he begins his new career in France.

Paris Saint-Germain's record €45 million signing, Lucas Moura, finally arrived in the French capital this week after agreeing a deal to join the Ligue 1 giants last summer.

But while Ibrahimovic has impressed most in his debut season in France, Edmilson has long harboured reservations over the former AC Milan striker.

“Lucas needs to stay smart around this arrogant superstar,” the retired defender posted on his personal Twitter account.

The 36-year-old's disregard for the prolific striker dates back to 2009 around the transfer that took Ibrahimovic to Barcelona in a swap deal that saw Samuel Eto'o move to Inter.

"I do not know if something happened between Eto'o and the board, but there is no way to compare the two players," Edmilson said at the time.

"You do not swap Eto'o for Ibrahimovic,” added the defender, a former team-mate of Eto'o during Frank Rijkaard's spell as Barcelona coach.
