'Zlatan Has Messi’s Technique & Mike Tyson’s Strength’

Paris Saint-Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has Lionel Messi’s technique and Mike Tyson’s strength, according to his agent Mino Raiola.

The agent said that PSG would struggle to replace the Swede should he leave in the summer, saying that he is Lionel Messi, Mike Tyson and Muhammad Ali combined.

“Today he is still the most important player in PSG's project,” he told L'Equipe.

“Where's his potential replacement? Where's the new Zlatan? It's impossible to find someone like him today and PSG know that.

“Zlatan is unique – he's the only player in the world who measures 1.96 metres, has the technique of Lionel Messi, the character of Muhammad Ali and the strength of Mike Tyson.”

Mino Raiola said that the 33-year-old will do what he wants at the end of the season, suggesting that if Ibrahimovic does move clubs, he will never sit on the sidelines, and will continue to be the star player.

“I've never forced players to do things they don't want – Zlatan will extend his deal beyond 2016 if he wants to,” he added.

“One thing he won't be, though, is a benchwarmer.

“He is the star of the team or he is gone.”

The former Barcelona, Inter Milan and AC Milan striker has made headlines for the wrong reasons lately, and has now been linked with a move away from the French giants.

He has scored 18 goals this season in all competitions for PSG, while he’s assisted four for his teammates in 28 appearances.
