Zlatan Ibrahimovic gives opinion on Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo with one word

Published 3 Comments

Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic certainly appears to be enjoying himself in the US on pre-season. 

The Swedish superstar, who is one of the most famous players in the game, took some time out of his busy pre-season schedule to do an interview with American bible Sports Illustrated.

It wasn't any old interview, however. The 33-year-old had to respond to a name with the first word that came to his head, and unsurprisingly his answers were fairly amusing.

Two names mentioned were the superstar duo of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

And, while the latter may well be pleased with being described as excellent, World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo may not be so content with being labelled as 'good'.

There's no doubt about it, Ronaldo and the majority in world football probably think he's slightly better than good, but Ibrahimovic clearly knows best...

When asked to describe himself, though, he quickly responded with 'wow', but did we really expect anything less? 

Next step for PSG 

Ibrahimovic, though, will most definitely be hoping to finally take Laurent Blanc's side to the next level next season. 

After a great deal of success in Ligue 1, it's clear for all to see that the club are now determined to land Champions League silverware, and Ibrahimovic may well have another huge role to play next term. 

If the French giants manage to secure the services of Manchester United ace Angel di Maria, then they may well have a greater chance of doing just that, especially if the Argentine international rediscovers his best form. 

Can PSG win the Champions League next season? Have your say below!
