Ibrahimovic ranks PSG as highly as himself

Sweden striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has given club side PSG his seal of approval by rating the French Ligue 1 outfit as highly as himself.

The 32-year-old former Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona and AC Milan star has a reputation for arrogance and a high opinion of his own abilities.

And he did nothing to dampen such ideas when asked what had convinced him to stay at the Parisians in the summer -- and even extend his deal to 2016 -- despite being linked with other European giants.

"I had a meeting with the (PSG) president (Nasser Al-Khelaifi) and after that meeting I had a different vision of things and he had convinced me," said Ibrahimovic from the Friends Arena in Solna, ahead of Friday's World Cup qualifier against Austria.

"So. a great player in a great club," added the forward.

There was good news for his countrymen, though, as the son of Bosnian and Croatian immigrants promised to continue playing at international level for another three years, as long as Sweden make the 2016 Euro finals in France.
