LA Galaxy striker Ibrahimovic: Messi vs Florentino for Ballon d'Or

LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has taken a swipe at Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric's Ballon d'Or victory.

Modric was named the winner last week, with Barcelona star Leo Messi failing to finish in the top three.

Ibrahimovic cast doubt on the vote, as he was quoted by Fox Sports stating: "We already know that who competed for the Ballon d'Or with Messi was (Florentino) Perez, not CR7."

The Swede was referring to Real president Florentino Perez.

Meanwhile, AC Milan chief Leonardo announced last night that Ibrahimovic would be staying at the Galaxy.
