Sweden and Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has disclose that Brazillian legend Ronaldo,was his child-hood hero. Both players have had the opportunity to play alongside.
“I think Ronaldo was phenomenal. He was the player that whatever he did it became ‘wow.’ He could do a difficult thing and it became magic,” he told United Review.
“He would take the ball and it was like him saying ‘I’ll take care of it now.’ You didn’t have that kind of football player before and you don’t have it today. He doesn’t exist.
“As a young player, I watched him and said to myself ‘I want to be exactly like that,’ the player who makes the difference, the shining light, simple as that.”
