Kevin-Prince Boateng has revealed the most ambitious player he has ever met in his career.
Boateng has played alongside some of the world’s greatest footballers, and Ibrahimovic stands out for the former Ghana international.
Ibrahimovic and Boateng were team-mates at AC Milan, with the pair helping the Serie A giants win the 2010-11 Scudetto.
“In two months I had become the fans’ hero. I have always been a player that like to showboat, but the best thing that I did at Milan was to be a warrior on the pitch. People reacted positively to this change in my playstyle, I played over players that no one would have imagined could be benched. Ibrahimovic? When I walked in the locker room on my first day he called me by my name. I thought: ‘Wow, he knows my name’. We got along from the very beginning. He is a leader, I have never met a more ambitious player than him. If he loses a game in training, he won’t speak to you for four days”.
