Leonardo: Ibrahimovic as good as Messi and Ronaldo

Paris Saint-Germain attacker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has voiced his opinion that Barcelona star Lionel Messi does not deserve to win the FIFA Ballon d'Or this year.

The Sweden international feels the Argentine has enjoyed a good season on a personal level, but added that he has not won enough silverware to be crowned the world's best this year.

"He had a great season personally but he didn't win much with his team," the flamboyant Ibrahimovic stated to Eurosport.

"He's already won the trophy three times and, if it goes on like that, it'll be difficult for anyone else to get it. It's time someone else won it."

Messi revealed earlier this week that he is not too concerned with winning individual trophies as he's focused on winning titles with Barcelona.
