Barcelona striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has slated the quality of his former Inter Milan teammates.

Ibrahimovic said: "At Inter there weren't many players who made the difference and when one of them was hurt, the game became difficult.

"Instead at Barcelona even when someone is out injured there are still other players who can make the difference and win. This is what makes Barcelona a great team."

The 28-year-old has gone some way to convincing the media that he is more than capable of stepping into the shoes of Samuel Eto'o.

"He did very well here and I have a lot of respect for what he did. He is a great player, but taking his place hasn't put any pressure on me. On the contrary, it's motivated me. We cannot compare ourselves because we are very different," Ibrahimovic explained.
