Ibrahimovic's signing is good for everyone in France, says Nice coach Claude Puel

The former Olympique Lyonnais coach thinks that the Swedish star's move to PSG is a major boost to football in the country.

Nice boss Claude Puel has indicated that Paris Saint-Germain's signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic is good for Ligue 1.

Ibrahimovic's arrival at the Parc des Princes represents a massive boost for PSG, but Puel does not fear the fact that the French capital club is strengthening its squad with world-class talent.

"Ibra's signing is good for everyone," Puel told reporters at a press conference.

"It is good for Ligue 1, which gets great talents. It is good for PSG, who have a better chance of reaching their goals in the Champions League. And it is also good for [France president] Francois Hollande, who will be able to get more money in the state's coffers."
