Zlatan Ibrahimovic insists that he never had a problem with any of his coaches, including Pep Guardiola, and laid the blame at their side.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has stated that he never had a problem with any of his coaches as he laid the blame at their side.

The Swedish striker famously left Barcelona after only one year playing under Pep Guardiola and went on to criticise the Spaniard in his autobiography.

"If I don't have a problem, I will approach you," Ibrahimovic told ESPN. "It's about the person who has the problem, he should approach the other one and we resolve it like men. I did not have the problem [with Guardiola], so it cannot bother me. It has to bother the other one, because I did not have the problem.

"Because I said, I am the person - I said here in the first press conference: if somebody disagrees with me or doesn't want me, doesn't like me, they say I walk strange, I don't look good, I talk different, I don't talk good - you tell me. We take the contract, cancel it, and I walk away. I'm not here to give problems, and I didn't have problems anywhere.

"And when I was in Barcelona, I resolved the problem by saying, 'No problem. If you have a problem, I will resolve it for you: I leave.' I will not stay here and give you problems, I'm not that guy."

Ibrahimovic is currently plying his trade in the United States with Major League Soccer side Los Angeles Galaxy.
