Zlatan Ibrahimovic has apologised for any offence caused by his outburst following Paris St Germain's defeat to Bordeaux - but claims his words have been "twisted".

Ibrahimovic is facing an investigation by the French football league (LFP) for comments made as he left the field on Sunday.

The Sweden striker's two goals were not enough to prevent PSG suffering a 3-2 defeat.

As he walked off the field Ibrahimovic was filmed venting his anger.

French sports minister Patrick Kanner called on the Swede to apologise, which he later did in a post on his Instagram account.

And talking to PSG's website on Monday evening, Ibrahimovic reiterated: "First of all, I was not aiming for the people.

"When I said it, I was angry at that moment. Whoever felt offended, or took it in the wrong way, I apologise."
