Nice striker Balotelli: Cavani great for PSG, but not in Ibrahimovic dimension

Nice striker Mario Balotelli says there's no comparing PSG ace Edinson Cavani and Manchester United's Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Cavani has successfully stepped in since Ibra's departure for Manchester United.

Balotelli told Telefoot: "The best player in Ligue 1? I would say Cavani, because it's been two years since he stacks the goals so I'll say Cavani. He broke Zlatan Ibrahimovic's record, but he played less.

"We cannot compare Zlatan with Cavani, sorry. Today he is the best player, but when Ibrahimovic was there, we could not compare. With all due respect to Cavani, who is a top player, Zlatan is in another dimension."
