​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.



"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.
