Oh this is some tasty content for sure. Sweden and AC Milan superstar striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has listed the best number five’s he has ever battled against.
For Zlatan, it all began at Swedish giants Malmo before his career took him to places like Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, PSG and Manchester United.
With a league title in every city, the 40-year-old has now named the five best defenders he has ever locked horns with.
“There are many, if you played in Italy, you have played against many strong defenders. Looking back 10 years, the defenders were harder, there was not even VAR,” Ibrahimovic added.
