Paris St. Germain finally wrapped up the Ligue 1 title on Sunday, beating third-place Lyon, 1-0, at the Stade de Gerland. Jeremy Menez’s 53rd-minute goal secured the trophy for the away team with two games still to play. For Lyon, the loss meant that Marseille is now guaranteed to finish second.

Meanwhile, speculation surrounding the futures of coach Carlo Ancelotti and striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is clouding over the celebrations for PSG. After the game, Ancelotti refused to speak about his future. "We are going to talk with the club," Ancelotti told Canal+. "I can't say if I will leave or stay. I haven't talked to the president yet." The Italian has been widely linked with a move to Real Madrid, although the club’s Qatari chairman Nasser al-Khelaifi points out that he is still under contract for another season.

Ibrahimovic is expected to follow Ancelotti out the door. The Sweden international, who was seen fighting with sporting director Leonardo as the other players were celebrating, has been speaking with former club Juventus about a possible return in the summer.

Ibrahimovic has now won eight league titles in four different countries. Former LA Galaxy midfielder David Beckham has now won 10 league titles in four different countries.
