With local celebrities (and David Beckham) packed into the Parc Des Princes hoping to see a celebration, PSG could only manage a 1-1 draw against Valenciennes. Thiago Silva was shown a straight red card shortly before halftime for touching the referee's chest as he complained about a booking for teammate Clement Chantome. A man down and a goal down in the second half, Zlatan Ibrahimovic released his frustration after one of several near goals by kicking an advertising board. It surely felt pain despite being an inanimate object.
PSG finally equalized with a header from Alex off a corner kick in the 83rd minute. After the final whistle, Ibrahimovic unleashed his verbal fury on the referee and when he was shown a yellow card, his jaw dropped in comical surprise. The referee shushed him as he approached, but Zlatan got in his face, pointing a finger anyway. He shushed him back and then expressed his indignation with a look of false surprise.
If you listen closely, you can still hear Ibrahimovic kicking lumps out of the advertising boards alone and in the dark of the Parc Des Princes.
