Marseille's Souleymane Diawara admits that he is looking forward to facing Paris Saint-Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic in tonight's Coupe de France clash

Marseille defender Souleymane Diawara has revealed that he is relishing the chance to come up against Zlatan Ibrahimovic tonight.

The 34-year-old could line up against the Paris Saint-Germain striker in the Coupe de France tie at Pac des Princes, and admitted that he is looking forward to the prospect.

"I like to face world-class players," Diawara told reporters.

"When you're defending and you have the chance to play against players like [Ibrahimovic] it sure is motivating.

"If I have the chance to play, for sure I will prepare, but I'm not going to do any special training just for Zlatan."

The two teams met in Ligue 1 last Sunday, with Carlo Ancelotti's side winning 2-0.
