AC Milan ace Ibrahimovic: Don't compare me with Van Basten

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."
