Zlatan Ibrahimovic Compares Self To Messi, Ronaldo

Milan forward, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has once again insisted that he's in the same class with Ronaldo and Messi and that the duo ‘have nothing' more than him apart from trophies.

The 39-year-old said this while speaking to France football ahead of Milan's match against Lazio and he reminded the world again of his unshakeable self-confidence.

When he was asked if he misses the Ballon d’Or as part of his career path, the former Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United hitman responses in his classical style.

“No, if anything it’s the Ballon d’Or that is missing me.”

“If we are talking about intrinsic quality, then they have nothing more than me. If we consider trophies, then yes, I didn’t win the Champions League.

“I don’t know what criteria they use to decide who gets the award, because I am not obsessed with it. When a collective works, the individual inevitably benefits from that. An individual cannot do well if the team isn’t solid.

“Deep down, I do think that I am the best in the world.”
