Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been told to keep his shirt on in Paris Saint-Germain's Champions League clash with Chelsea on Tuesday.

In an effort to draw attention to world famine, the Swedish star striker pulled his shirt off after scoring against Caen on Saturday, revealing what turned out to be temporary tattoos with the names of 50 people suffering from hunger.

The action was planned together with the United Nations' World Food Program, but it also earned Ibrahimovic a yellow card. PSG coach Laurent  Blanc does not want a repeat in the last 16 tie against Jose Mourinho's side on Tuesday, the Telegraph reported.

"I was aware of his commitment to the foundation, but personally I didn't know that he'd had several names tattooed on him," the Telegraph cited Blanc as saying Monday. "If it was to show his tattoos then it worked because it made the front page of every website in the world, so in that sense it was very successful for him and for the foundation. But it cost us a yellow card."

After Saturday’s action, Ibrahimovic said in an interview: “I have 50 names on my body. They are names of real people who are suffering from starvation around the world. The tattoos are gone now, but the people still exist.”

Ibrahimovic and the UN World Food Program wanted to bring attention to the 805 billion people who currently suffer from starvation around the globe.
