🇸🇪 Zlatan: ‘Why I prefer Messi over Ronaldo’

Sweden and AC Milan superstar striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed why he favours Lionel Messi to Cristiano Ronaldo.

In a recent chat in the media, the famous number nine weighed in on the longstanding "Messi vs Ronaldo" debate, which has been going on for over a decade.

According to Ibrahimovic, 40, Lionel Messi, whom he once called a teammate at Barcelona, feels the Argentine is simply naturally gifted than his Ronaldo.

"They are very strong, it's a difficult choice," he told Corriere TV.

"If I must choose, I would say Messi because I played with him and everything he does is not built, he does it naturally,” he added.

Meanwhile, Ibrahimovic’s injury-filled season has only allowed him seven goals and two assists in 14 games.

Coming up next for Milan is the visit of Napoli in Serie A this weekend.
