When talking about comparing him to Messi and Ronaldo, the veteran star replied, "If you talk about abilities, I am not less than them. If you look at titles, I have not won the Champions League.. But I do not know how to evaluate. When you do good things collectively, individual titles will come." Accordingly, an individual cannot be good if the collective performance is not good, in my heart I think I am the best in the world."

On his position among the best in the history of the game, he replied, "I don't think it's appropriate to compare players to each other. Everyone has played in their generation, with different players, it's hard to compare. I think everyone has their own story."

On the other hand, Ibrahimovic talked about his plans after retirement, and said, "I want to disappear. When you live in this world as I live, you know what you will go through mentally and physically. So, I just want to disappear and enjoy my life."
