Paris, Nov 10 (IANS) Reflecting on his time in Italy, Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has said “Serie A is the best league in the world”.
The 34-year-old has played for Juventus, Inter and Milan but left the country in 2012 to join the current French champions.
However, he still holds the league in high regard and looks back on his time there fondly.
“Serie A is the place where I became famous with Juventus,” he said to Gazzetta dello Sport on Monday.
“At Ajax I wasn’t an international star yet. Everything changed at the Bianconeri: the world opened its eyes and saw me. Apart from the year at Barcelona, I played and lived in Italy from 2004 to 2012.”
“I won the title with the three biggest clubs, Juventus, Inter and Milan. I became top scorer, I was chosen as best player.”
“For me it remains the best league in the world. And also it’s the most difficult for a striker, because they think firstly about not conceding goals and then about making them,” he concluded.
