Sall takes credit for Ibra red

4 November 2012 13:44

Moustapha Bayal Sall says Saint-Etienne planned to upset Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who was sent off as Paris Saint-Germain lost on Saturday.

Saint-Etienne inflicted a first league defeat of the season on the Ligue 1 leaders at the Parc des Princes, thanks to an own goal from Mamadou Sakho and a strike from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, with Guillaume Hoarau notching a consolation for PSG.

The hosts were down to 10 men after Ibrahimovic was shown a straight red card for a high kick on goalkeeper Stephane Ruffier - the Sweden international's 11th sending off of his career - and, after the match, Bayal Sall revealed it was his job to rile up the striker.

"It was hard, but it went well. I followed the instructions of the coach. He (Ibrahimovic) was upset. I think it worked," Bayal told RMC Sport.

"He was putting in nudges. He does not speak French, but I think there were insults on his part."

PSG will look to bounce back in their Champions League clash at home to Dinamo Zagreb on Tuesday.
