AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has dismissed comparisons with Marco van Basten.

Some Milan powerbrokers are already saying Ibra is BETTER than the Rossoneri legend.

Ibra said: "You cannot compare players. He was a striker like myself. But Zlatan is Zlatan."

He continued: "I still remember when I first saw him, I was in the locker room of Ajax, he was doing an internship to become a coach. I was completely silent, I did not know what to say.

"In time, I got to know him more. I thought he was a good person, a real attacker, who was always willing to listen."
