"He had a great season personally but he didn't win much with his team," the flamboyant Ibrahimovic stated to Eurosport.
"He's already won the trophy three times and, if it goes on like that, it'll be difficult for anyone else to get it. It's time someone else won it."
Messi revealed earlier this week that he is not too concerned with winning individual trophies as he's focussed on winning titles with Barcelona.
