Paris: Football superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic's record-breaking salary at his new Paris club has sparked a fierce backlash from French politicians denouncing it as "indecent" at a time of financial hardship.
The 30-year-old Swedish striker's transfer to Paris Saint-Germain from AC Milan was hailed by fans with hundreds chanting "Ibra! Ibra!" as he was presented to them Wednesday at a ceremony in front of the Eiffel Tower.
He has been hired on a reported annual net salary of about 14 million euros ($17 million) -- the most ever paid to a player in France.
