Agent: Zlatan Ibrahimovic better than Lionel Messi

Mino Raiola has stated that the Paris Saint-Germain striker is a stronger player than the Barcelona talisman.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a better player than both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, according to the Swedish striker’s agent.

The powerful forward has established himself as one of the most respected centre forwards in world football during his career, which has seen him step out for Ajax, Juventus, Inter, AC Milan and Barcelona.

Speaking to French media, Raiola was full of praise for his client and stated that Ibrahimovic was superior to the afore-mentioned duo.

"A new Zlatan? He will never exist,” the representative told Telefoot.

“He is stronger than Ronaldo and Messi. He's under contract until 2016 and I don't like to make predictions about his future. He has a contract and the contract is respected.”

Ibrahimovic famously fell out with Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola during his time at Camp Nou and was sold on after a solitary season with the Spanish giants.

The Scandinavian did not see eye-to-eye with Messi either, especially as the four-times Ballon d’Or winner was moved into a central role and as such made Ibra’s presence unnecessary.

Ibrahimovic has won a staggering ten domestic league titles during his career and ten cup competitions also.
