The Swedish star Zlatan Ibrahimovic surprised the world fans by changing his opinion about the identity of the greatest soccer player of all time, pointing out that the best player in history is Argentine Lionel Messi and not Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo, who he had considered the best ever in a previous statement years ago.
Ibrahimovic (41 years) said in an interview with “France Inter”: “Messi is considered the best player ever, I was sure that he would win it (the World Cup). I am also convinced that (French striker) Kylian Mbappe will be crowned again in the World Cup ( After winning the World Cup in Russia 2018).
Ibrahimovic’s opinion changed with Messi’s coronation with Argentina in the World Cup hosted by Qatar at the end of last year, but at the same time he attacked Messi’s colleagues in the Argentine national team who mocked Frenchman Kylian Mbappe during their celebrations of the World Cup title and carried them with a doll bearing Mbappe’s face, as did goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez., and described Zlatan behaved as “very bad”.
Ibrahimovic responded to the behavior of Messi’s colleagues: “They succeeded in winning the World Cup title, but they will not win anything else. The world will only remember Messi, and it will not remember them because of the behavior of many of them .. We cannot respect that .. because this is not the way to achieve victories.”
It is noteworthy that Ibrahimovic is still a player in the ranks of Milan and led him to win the Italian League title last season, and he is currently absent from the stadiums due to injury.
