The Spaniard had a fractious relationship with the striker during his time in charge of Barcelona, with the player’s representative reigniting the feud
Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s agent Mino Raiola has slammed Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola by claiming he “sucks as a person” following his treatment of his client back in 2011.
The striker, now with Paris Saint-Germain, spent two years at Camp Nou before leaving under a cloud in 2011 after a much publicised dispute with Guardiola over his lack of playing time in his final season.
Ibrahimovic labelled Guardiola a “spineless coward” in his autobiography and now Raiola, who has represented the Sweden star for much of his career, has reignited the feud between the pair.
“Guardiola was the one who took Ibra to Barcelona and then treated him very badly,” he said in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport.
“He’s a great coach, but he’s crap as a person.”
In his book, brahimovic also blamed Guardiola for his failure to win the Champions League at Barcelona, a trophy which has eluded the 33-year-old throughout his career, despite winning league titles in five different countries.
He was sold to AC Milan in 2011 before moving on to Paris Saint-Germain in 2012, where he has spent the last two-and-a-half seasons.
