Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic claims club is ready to win Champions League with David Beckham’s help.
The Englishman’s contract expires in June, but the Swedish forward is confident that the former Manchester United will sign again and help bring silverware to Paris.
“We are going to win the Champions League – and David is going to be part of it,” the 31-year-old told reporters.
“The owners want him to stay, the coach wants him to stay, the players want him to stay, and that is why I am sure he will commit to at least another season in the summer.
“David is a true professional and he is as disappointed as anybody, but he believes in this project and that is why he will stay.”
In this year’s European competition, PSG were eliminated by Barcelona in the quarterfinal but Ibrahimovic feels they did what was expected of them.
“Of course it is disappointing to go out to Barcelona. Over the two games we thought we had done enough to beat them,” he added.
“The positives are that Europe has seen what we are about, that we are not just a wealthy club playing at this, but we can compete with any team in Europe.”
