After a long vacation and training on his own the team has started to play preparation matches for the new season. Paris Saint-Germain meets OGC Nice tomorrow in the fourth game of the pre-season at Stade de la Méditerranée in Béziers
It has been a long and much needed break for you, and a long summer without Zlatan on the international scene. Last season ended with you returning after an injury and many probably wonder how you are doing. What are your thoughts before the season?
Zlatan: It feels really good. I have been training really hard and I’m still in a tough build-up phase, as it should be with pre-season training.
We have all seen in Unplugged that you have been busy at the gym all summer. Last week you got back to the team and then played half the game against Leipzig, your first for the season. How does it feel to be back on the pitch playing matches with the fans cheering you on?
Zlatan: It was the first time I even touched a ball after the vacation, but it felt alright after all the hard training without ball. You long to get back on the arenas, and that’s an understatement.
Tomorrow OGC Nice awaits, a team that is celebrating its 110th anniversary, in Béziers. Do we get to see a starting line-up that wants to show who is France’s finest, or will it be a game where you just try to get a feel of your physical capacity and rotate as many players as possible?
Zlatan: Not everybody is back from vacation. Those who are here will get to play, but I don’t know how much. It varies individually depending on status.
