Barcelona's Xavi: Ibrahimovic as big as Ronaldo

Xavi says new Barcelona teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic is as big a rock star as Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Barca midfielder is delighted with Ibra's arrival and said: "He will be great to work with - and easy to find during games! His signing is indeed a very important coup for the club.

"He is undoubtedly the equal of Ronaldo and Kaka (both Real Madrid), as much in media profile as technically, which is more important to some people.

"Also, he is hungry for titles and wants to win important things that will help us to maintain a competitive level. I've always liked Ibrahimovic.

"Also, he will make us stronger in the air."
