Zlatan Ibrahimović: I'm the world's number one player!

Saturday, March 5, 2011

Despite never having been named the best player in the world, AC Milan ace Zlatan Ibrahimović still rates himself among the elite and makes no apologies for his self-confidence.

Ibrahimović, who has the opportunity to claim a third successive title with three different teams this year following his successes with Inter Milan and Barcelona, has fallen short in terms of receiving the sort of individual honours bestowed upon the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Interviewed by La Gazzetta dello Sport, the 29-year-old said: "I'm number one. I really feel that way. If you think you are the second it's the end.

"The fact that I have never won the Ballon d'Or and FIFA World Player doesn't mean that I cannot be number one."

The striker also explained his decision to change clubs on a regular basis and revealed that he's likely to end his career with Milan at the age of 33.

He added: "It's better to change rather than stay at a club for a long time because you learn through changing and a great player must be decisive in many clubs.

"You need motivation to be at your best. It's always easier to seem strong at your home.

"Anyway Milan will probably be my last club. I believe that I will stop after the age of 33. I don't want to stay and spit blood until the end."
