Former Juventus and AC Milan striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has taken a dig at Cristiano Ronaldo, claiming that the real 'Ronaldo' is Brazilian legend, Ronaldo Nazario and not the Portugese superstar.
The 38-year-old who will become a free agent at the end of the year has been linked with a return back to Italy, with even the player hinting recently that he is close to joining a team in the Serie A, amid interest from Milan and Napoli.
If he does return, the Super Swede will no doubt come across Ronaldo and Juventus and that would not be a problem according him as he has already faced the 'Real Ronaldo' in his career.
🇸🇪 Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Cristiano Ronaldo: “Going to Juventus was a challenge for him? A challenge? Seriously? A challenge is going to a club that has won 7 league titles in a row? That’s bullshit!” 🇵🇹 pic.twitter.com/g9nCEBRfDa— FutbolBible (@FutbolBible) December 5, 2019
"No, not at all. The real Ronaldo is Brazilian. His [Cristiano's] is not a natural talent but the fruit of a lot of work," Zlatan said to GQ Italia, as quoted by Marca.
Ibrahimovic did not stop there when it came to talking about the Portugese star, also going on to claim that he did not see his move from Real Madrid to Juventus as a "big challenge".
"He signed for a team that has won Serie A seven times in a row. Going to a club like this is not a challenge. If he wanted a challenge, he would have gone to Juventus when they were in Serie B to promote them to Serie A and take them back to the top," he concluded.
