It was only a matter of time until the egomania of the PSG "project" spilled into the parking lot, and that day has now come.
At Paris-Saint-Germain's Camp des Loges training ground, there are two parking lots: one in which players have individually assigned spaces, and another closer to the entrance of the facility reserved for executives and club officials.
Since Zlatan Ibrahimovic will not be constrained by any man's predetermined parking arrangements and no one dares to question him, he is allowed to park in the executive lot.
According to several news outlets, Javier Pastore tried to park his €160,000 Audi R8 Spyder in Zlatan's special parking zone on Wednesday, but was promptly denied entry by security staff. Apparently furious, the midfielder performed a U-turn and drove into a gate on his way back to his regular space. Translated from Sportune.fr:
[French newspaper ] L'Equipe said the Argentinean, visibly upset, hit the gate of the Camp des Loges training centre on purpose with the back of his vehicle.
It is not known whether Pastore's R8 is damaged, but his pride certainly took a big dent during the incident.
The French press are also keen to point out that the Argentinean has had his car customized with a black and red color scheme — a fitting combination of hues for a man who recently told an Italian magazine he longs to play for AC Milan.
