Zlatan Ibrahimovic was unable to play in the second leg of PSG's Champions League quarterfinal against Chelsea due to a hamstring injury and his teammates could have used his Zlatastic influence. PSG squandered their 3-1 first-leg lead, losing the second leg 2-0 at Stamford Bridge and allowing Chelsea to advance on their one away goal.
Demba Ba's 87th-minute goal was a heartbreaker for the visitors, including Zlatan, who watched from behind PSG's bench. But after the match, once the fans had gone home and everything had quieted down, Zlatan used his ninja skills to sneak up behind his old friend Jose Mourinho as he conducted a pitchside interview with Chelsea TV. Zlatan gave the former Inter boss a bit of a scare as he jostled him from behind, but the two hugged and Zlatan showed his sportsmanship by wishing Mourinho good luck in the semifinals.
What the Chelsea TV camera didn't pick up was that Zlatan also whispered, "You must defeat Bayern. The Coalition against Pep is counting on you."
