Barcelona President Josep Maria Bartomeu told newsmen that Zlatan Ibrahimovic 's agent once told him that the striker could punch his former coach, Pep Guardiola


It is a known fact that Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Pep Guardiola never saw eye to eye during their days together at Barcelona.

The striker now at Paris Saint-Germain spent one season with Guardiola and once threatened to punch him.

This threat was revealed by Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu.

Barca president Bartomeu revealed that Ibrahimovic's agent Mino Raiola told him the striker could punch his coach.

"I know agent Mino Raiola very well having negotiated with him before. I dealt with him over Zlatan Ibrahimovic in 2010, for instance," Bartomeu told reporters.

"I had many meetings with Mino. In one, he told me: 'Ibra will punch Pep one of these days.'

"Mino is a very friendly and very funny guy but one must look at his pocket. He makes a living ridiculously well. He is a specialist at players changing teams."

Raiola is the agent of Paul Pogba who according to reports wants a move to Barcelona.
