  • Ibrahimovic expected Messi win
  • Says Argentina were badly behaved
  • Believes team will not win more titles

WHAT HAPPENED? Ibrahimovic has given his verdict on Argentina after seeing La Albiceleste win their third World Cup in Qatar with a final victory over France back in December. The AC Milan striker acknowledged that captain Messi's contribution will not be forgotten, but was not too impressed with the rest of the team.

WHAT THEY SAID: "Messi is considered the best player in history, I was sure he was going to win. What will happen is that [Kylian] Mbappe will still win a World Cup," Ibrahimovic said in an interview with France Inter. "I'm not worried about him. I'm worried about the others in Argentina, because they will not win anything more. Messi has won everything and he will be remembered, but the rest who behaved badly, we can't respect that. This is coming from me, speaking as a top professional player, that is a sign that you will win once, but you won't win again. You don't win like that."
