“When we talk about intrinsic quality, then they have nothing but me,” Ibrahimovic said in an interview with France soccer when asked about Ronaldo and Messi.
“If we’re considering trophies, yes, I didn’t win the trophy Champions League.
“I don’t know what criteria they use to decide who gets the award because I’m not obsessed with it. When a collective works, the individual inevitably benefits. An individual cannot be good if the team is not solid.
“[Do] I miss the Ballon d’Or? No, if anything, I miss the Ballon d’Or.
“Deep down, I think I’m the best in the world.”
