Ibrahimovic crowned France's player of year


PSG's Zlatan Ibrahimovich's latest antics have got him in trouble in France.

PARIS - Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic was voted France&39;s Ligue 1 player of the year for a record third time on Sunday.

Ibrahimovic won the award, voted for by his peers, ahead of PSG team-mate Angel Di Maria, Nice forward Hatem Ben Arfa and Marseille midfielder Lassana Diarra after scoring 35 goals in the capital club&39;s romp to a fourth straight French title.

PSG are on course to repeat last year&39;s domestic treble, having won the League Cup last month, with the final of the French Cup on May 21 against bitter rivals Marseille.

However, Ibrahimovic&39;s future in Paris remains uncertain with the 34-year-old out of contract at the end of the season.

PSG coach Laurent Blanc claimed the Ligue 1 coach of the year prize for the second straight season, while 18-year-old Rennes striker Ousmane Dembele was named France&39;s young player of the year after netting 12 goals in a remarkable debut campaign.
