Juventus star defender Giorgio Chiellini has claimed that Manchester United forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the best striker he has faced in his life.
It could be that his path crosses with Chiellini again at some stage in the future, with the experienced centre-half full of praise for a man he has played alongside at Juventus and against for both club and country.
“I like coming up against great strikers, I’ve always liked to face the best,” Chiellini told France Football.
“An example would be Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the most formidable striker I’ve ever seen. I often played against him in Serie A, and Ibra was the top. He’s always made the difference wherever he’s gone.”
