Former Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic recently had a sensational interview with Piers Morgan on Talk TV. The former soccer player maintained his familiar ruthless status in that interview.

Talking about greatness in individual quality, Zlatan seriously put himself all of the above, including the Argentine legend Lionel Messi and Portuguese legend Cristiano Ronaldo.

Zlatan said on the greatness in individual quality, "I think I am the best... without joking. I'm the most complete player that ever exists."

In his senior professional soccer career, Zlatan scored more than 570 goals. Meanwhile, both Messi and Ronaldo have crossed the 800-goal mark, where Ronaldo is a little ahead with 850+ goals.

Zlatan scored 62 international goals, an all-time record for the Swedish national team. Both Messi and Ronaldo have crossed 100 international goals, where Ronaldo is leading the all-time list.

Although Zlatan has many soccer records and won many trophies, he never lifted the prestigious UEFA Champions League trophy. Meanwhile, Ronaldo and Messi won five and four UCL trophies, respectively.

While Messi won the FIFA World Cup 2022 and Copa America 2021, and Ronaldo lifted the UEFA Euro 2016 trophy, Zlatan never experienced any recognized international trophy success.

Also, the Ballon d'Or award can be another factor. While Messi has the record for 7 Ballon d'Ors, and Ronaldo is in the next with 5 Ballon d'Ors, Zlatan's best Ballon d'Or success was 4th in 2013.
