Lucas: I didn't call Zlatan 'arrogant'

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Lucas has claimed an interview in which he described Zlatan Ibrahimovic as "a bit arrogant" was badly translated, and hailed his team-mate as "a great player".

Lucas, 20, was reported to have told South American radio station Fox Sport that his Swedish team-mate "is an immense player, but sometimes a bit arrogant." However, on his official Twitter account, the January arrival from Sao Paulo said his words had been "twisted and badly translated".

The Brazil international added: "Ibra is a great player, very important for the team. We get on very well with each other."

The controversy stirred by Lucas' comments provoked PSG's official website to publish the Brazilian's denial, though if Ibrahimovic, 31, reads the remainder of what his team-mate reportedly said in his radio interview, Ligue 1's leading scorer may not be quite so annoyed.

"He moans a lot, demands the ball constantly, and swears, but he's nice to me. He welcomed me warmly, and has already got to know me," Lucas said.

"Ibra's complex. But he rarely makes mistakes. He shouts, and we manage to understand him, whatever the language. We make fun of each other quite a lot, and - anyway - he deserves respect."

Lucas will be using the upcoming international break to recover from an ankle injury, having been forced to turn down a call-up to Luiz Felipe Scolari's Brazil squad for Thursday's friendly with Italy in Geneva.
