Zlatan Ibrahimovic: The super Swede's goals helped secure the Ligue 1 title

The Swede's 30 goals helped PSG to the Ligue 1 title last season, but despite that rumours have persisted that he could leave the French capital after just one year.

How Blanc will deal with PSG's star-studded dressing room has been another hot topic, but the former France national coach is confident that Ibrahimovic will set an example for his team-mates to follow.

"I will just need to coach him like any other player," said the former Barcelona, Inter Milan and Manchester United defender.

"He is a great professional. With what he has showed in the clubs where he has played, he will be an example for the other players.

"I hope with the other leaders he will get the team to the highest level, because our objectives are very high."

Ibrahimovic signed for Barcelona from Inter Milan in 2009, but a year later he was loaned to AC Milan before making the move permanent in 2011.

After 12 months at the San Siro, Ibrahimovic was sold to PSG for a fee thought to be in the region of €20m.
