Zlatan Ibrahimovic did not hesitate to tag his greatest player of all time before expressing strong opinions about NBA superstar LeBron James.
About the greatest footballer of all time there is an ancient debate: Pele or Diego Maradona, Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, or Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s alternative option?
In 1994 and 2002 ‘Il Fenomeno’ helped his nation lift the World Cup twice, and was once a runner-up in 1998 while scoring 62 goals in 98 international caps for the Selecao.
“I always tell everyone who plays with me: Ronaldo is football. That Ronaldo is football,” said Ibrahimovic.
“The way he moved, the way he did those stepovers, those mazy runs. In my view, he is the best player in history, no doubt about it.”
While the Milan striker was in his homeland speaking to UEFA and Discovery+ about his career, he also voiced strong opinions about NBA superstar LeBron James.
“What he does is phenomenal, but I don’t like it when people with a certain status talk about politics,” he said.
“Do what you are good at. I play football because I am the best at it. If I was a politician, I’d have gone into politics.”
“This is the first mistake that famous people make when they feel like they’ve arrived.”
“I think it’s better to steer clear of these issues and do what you’re good at.”
