Chiellini rates Man Utd's Ibrahimovic as the best

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini rates Manchester United's Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the best player he has played against.

Chiellini, 33, has played 332 matches for Juventus, and in that time he has faced some of the best strikers in the Serie A and Champions League.

"I have always liked to play against the great ones," Chiellini told France Football.

"Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the most formidable striker that I have come across. I often played against him in Serie A, where there was both sunny days and rainy days.

"Ibra is the best. He has always made a difference wherever he has gone."
