Inter Milan No2 Sinisa: Ibrahimovic can match Van Basten

Inter Milan assistant coach Sinisa Mihajlovic says Zlatan Ibrahimovic can match the feats of AC Milan great Marco van Basten.

"It's possible," declared Mihajlovic. "I've had the pleasure of playing against both of them.

"Van Basten was a bit stronger than Ibrahimovic, but only because Zlatan is still younger than him. Ibra has a lot of room for improvement.

"He needs to be more consistent because, like all great players, he still often has breaks in the game. You may not see him for 10-15 minutes, then he wakes up and you have the impression that he can always get goals.

"This is the only thing he should work on improving, because technically and physically, everything else will come together in a couple of years.

"He not only scores impossible goals, he can do everything.

"He is also quite crazy in the head, and I say this in a positive way. He has all the ingredients to become stronger, I hope he will be for many years. Surely, if he comes to that point, I think that he will win the Ballon d'Or. Rather, he will win more than one."
