Ibrahimović: “Leo is the best”

Ahead of tomorrow’s international friendly game between Sweden and Argentina, Swedish captain and Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic (31) talked to the press.

During the press conference, the Big Swede praised his ex-Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi (25). Replying to a Mundo Deportivo reporter, Ibrahimovic said: “I think Leo is a fantastic player. On an individual level he certainly is the best player in the world. Needless for me to say really, many people agree and it shows in the amount of trophies he has won in recent years.”

One journalist asked him a direct question: “Between you and him, who’s the best?” As per usual Ibrahimovic was really honest. “After what Leo has done in recent years, there’s no debate.” Talking about the game he added: “It will be fun and exciting to play against Leo.”
