PSG star Ibrahimovic: I'd have been Premier League star. Wenger must have regrets

PSG star Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he would've been a Premier League star if he'd moved to England. Ibrahimovic has no doubts he would've been too much for Premier League defences.

Ibrahimovic, 32, said: "England is a very strong league, with three or four of the best teams in Europe - but, if I had played there, I would have destroyed it, like I have everywhere else.

"Arsenal could have happened, as everybody knows - but I would not do a trial. Who do you think regrets that more, Arsene Wenger or Zlatan?

"I'm always amused when I am asked about not having tested myself in England."

Ibrahimovic, who scored four goals in a 2012 friendly against Roy Hodgson's England side, added in the Sunday Mirror: "The last time I faced England, which is supposed to be the best players in the Premier League, what happened?

"Maybe people need to be reminded that it was the Zlatan show."
