AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has dismissed the Ballon d'Or snub.

The ex-Ajax, Juventus and Inter striker has told Telefoot that he doesn't have any doubts over his own ability.

"Messi is a really strong player and I hope he continues to be one," the Rossoneri ace declared.

"He's still very young, but he's won almost everything that there is to win in this game," he continued.

"In my head, though, I am the strongest of them all.

"I certainly don't need a Golden Ball to demonstrate that I am No 1."
