EPIC MISS! Zlatan Ibrahimović’s horribly shanked volley (PSG V Ajaccio)
Zlatan’s famed for his nonchalance, but this was casual even by his standards.
Timing his run to beat the offside trap in PSG’s Friday night game with Ajaccio, Ibra latched onto a perfectly weighted ball over the top from Thiago Motta.
With time and space on his side, he tried for the aesthetic golazo volley, when a simple control with the chest and easy finish was called for.
There was even the undignified act of a glance across to the linesman in the quiet hope a mercy offside, which wasn’t forthcoming.
By Zlatan’s impeccable standards, a definite EPIC MISS!
