Everyone wants to stop PSG, says Ibrahimovic

Les Parisiens front man believes that other teams are determined to undermine his side's chances of success and give them "extraordinary treatment" on the field
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has said Paris Saint-Germain receive "extraordinary treatment" from opposition sides, adding that he believes teams target them due to their high-profile reputation.

Les Rouge-et-Bleu sit top of Ligue 1 with 38 points from their 19 fixtures so far, leading second-placed Olympique Lyonnais due to a superior goal difference.

And Ibrahimovic claims that French football is tougher than it is often perceived, but that it is especially difficult for him and his side.

"I feel that I'm under a lot of scrutiny," the Swedish forward revealed in an interview with the club's official website.

"Eveywhere I go, people pounce on the least little thing I do. I just need to get used to it, because Paris are really in the limelight right now.

"But it's fine, that's how things go. When you want to be at the top, you have to accept extraordinary treatment.

"Everyone wants to throw a spanner in our works to stop us from fulfilling our ambitions. In the team, we all have the same objectives and we're not going to let anything get in our way."
