A former teammate of one of Manchester United's new stars has compared him to FC Barcelona duo Luis Suarez and Neymar.
Former Blaugrana and Italy defender Gianluca Zambrotta believes Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic should be regarded as one of the best players in the world.
The Italian, who played alongside the Swede at AC Milan and Juventus, recently praised his former teammate's achievements and also applauded him for being an outstanding professional.
"Wherever Zlatan plays, he does very well. He is a winner everywhere he goes," Zambrotta said, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.
"He compares with the best players at the moment, like Suarez and Neymar.
"I played with him twice and he's a good professional and has good motivation. I have always liked him."
The 34-year-old striker has had an instant impact at Old Trafford, having scored three goals in three league games.
