Zlatan atones for France insult during title ceremony

Updated Mar. 5, 2020 12:20 a.m. ET

Zlatan Ibrahimovic caused a bit of a circus when he insulted the French people during a wild outburst, one which earned him a four-game suspension. 

After a loss to Bordeaux in March, Zlatan complained that in 15 years of playing football, he'd never seen such a terrible referee in this '[expletive] country.'

Even French politicians expressed their outrage at Zlatan's words at the time, but the PSG star seems to be making amends now. 

During PSG's Ligue 1 title celebrations on Saturday, Zlatan was giving an interview at the trophy podium and finished it up with an emphatic "Vive la France" before releasing a big smile.
