Ibra agent slams Barca

Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s agent has claimed that he has ‘no respect’ for Barcelona and Pep Guardiola.

The Swedish striker spent just one season at Camp Nou following a big-money move from Inter in 2009.

However, after falling out with then Coach Guardiola, the goalscorer left for Milan, first on loan, and then in a permanent move.

“Who was supposed to defend Zlatan in Barcelona if it hadn't been me? His wife? The whole club talked him down," Mino Raiola told 11 Freunde.

“He was the king at Inter and after his move he was suddenly a nobody. Pep Guardiola let him down, without any explanation. 

“Ask Guardiola what his mistake was. He won't answer, because he can't admit he made a mistake – that would insult his intelligence. 

“If you pay €79m for a player and don't let him play, that's not just totally dumb but also financially damaging.

“Most of the agents wouldn't criticise this policy because they are afraid big Barcelona will never ever buy a player of theirs. 

“I just don't care. I have no respect for a club if the club has no respect for my players.

“If the relationship doesn't work out, you have to end it.”
