Zlatan Ibrahimovic has compared Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
The LA Galaxy forward has played alongside the Argentine, during his brief spell with Barcelona, and spent time at Ronaldo’s former club Manchester United in the Premier League over the course of his career.
The Swede has been an ever-present figure in football for the last decade and weighed in on the Messi vs Ronaldo debate, making a comparison between them.
The 38-year-old striker spoke specifically of Messi “at home” in Barcelona, ‘hardworking’ Ronaldo in Turin and himself currently shining for the Galaxy in in the Major Soccer League.
During the interview with Gazzetta dello Sport, the former Sweden captain said: “We will see where they are when they are my age.
“At 35 I was in United. It was not easy but in my first season we won three titles, breaking forecasts.
“You don’t know how many haters I have.
“I admire Cristiano, he works very hard and has played everywhere but in Italy it’s different, I’m not surprised that he scores less than before.
“About Leo, what to say? He has a unique talent and is in home. For me it will never change teams.”
Ibrahimovic has been with LA since 2018 after leaving the Red Devils after two seasons.
The star has lead from the front this season with 30 goals in 29 games for LA Galaxy, securing them a spot in the play-offs.
