There is an ancient debate about the greatest footballer of all time: Pele or Diego Maradona, Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, or Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s alternative option?

Zlatan Ibrahimovic did not pause to name his greatest player of all time before expressing strong opinions about NBA superstar LeBron James.

‘Il Fenomeno’ helped his nation lift the World Cup twice, in 1994 and 2002, and while scoring 62 goals in 98 international caps for the Selecao he was once a runner-up in 1998.

“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.”

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
