Barcelona ace Xavi full of praise for PSG signing Ibrahimovic

Barcelona midfielder Xavi has talked up former teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic's chances of success at PSG.

Xavi, a three-time UEFA Champions League winner, believes the signing of the Sweden international is a move that can propel PSG to European success in the future.

"He is a great signing," said the Spaniard. "He performed fantastically for us and he is a top level player.

"He can bring a lot to them, and is the signing they needed to go on and win the French title.

"I don't think he had a disappointing season (at Barcelona in 2009-10).

"We won La Liga and got to the semi-finals of the Champions League, he scored important goals and we had a good understanding with him on the pitch and in the dressing room.

"He only stayed one year but he didn't leave behind a bad image."
