Celebrations 'instinctive' for Ibrahimovic

Paris Saint-Germain star Zlatan Ibrahimovic says his goal celebrations are fuelled by 'pure emotion' on the pitch.

The former Barcelona and AC Milan striker has netted 20 times for PSG this season, but said that he does not plan his celebrations beforehand.

"When I score a goal, I never know in advance how I will celebrate, given (I'm) the current top scorer in the championship," Ibrahimovic told RMC Sport.

"There is so much adrenaline. Timing is everything, the environment, my mood. This is pure emotion.

"Often, I jump in the air with a tight fist. But it is instinctive, I do not plan it. I just get very happy and I want to show it to everyone."

PSG sit top of Ligue 1 on 38 points ahead of Lyon and Marseille on goal difference halfway through the season.

As well as being influential domestically, Ibrahimovic was crucial in Carlo Ancelotti's side finishing top of Group A in the Champions League.

PSG face Valencia in the last 16 in February.
