Previously, however, the Sweden international refused to call Messi the GOAT. “Ronaldo is the phenomenon. I imitated him as a kid.” Ibrahimovic shared his thoughts on who is the greatest player of all time.
He also claimed that winning the 2021 Balon D’or is a fortune for Messi, adding: “Leo lives for football. but [Robert] Lewandowski deserved the Ballon d’Or this year.”

Lionel Messi was instrumental in Argentina’s success after leading them from the front after seven goals and naming them player of the tournament.
After watching the great magician perform, the lion may be struck by the way he never was and perhaps change his initial thoughts about the world champion, saying in a new interview with France Inter: “Messi is considered the best player of all time. I was sure he would win. I’m also convinced that Kylian Mbappe will win another World Cup.”

However, the 41-year-old Milan striker is not satisfied with Messi’s Argentine team-mates as they pushed their limits at every available opportunity while the attitude they showed was particularly the reason for the dissatisfaction.
“I’m not worried about Messi; I’m worried about the others in Argentina because otherwise they won’t win anything. Messi won everything and he will be remembered, but we cannot respect the rest who behaved badly.” – added Zlatan.
