Verratti: Ibrahimovic makes the difference

The Italian midfielder has singled out the former Milan striker as PSG's main danger man and has set his sights on more silverware this season

Marco Verratti has lavished praise on Zlatan Ibrahimovic, saying he is proud to be playing alongside the Sweden international at Paris-Saint Germain.

Ibrahimovic played a key role in the club's Ligue 1 title success last season as he netted 30 goals in 34 league appearances and Verratti feels the attacker was crucial to their campaign.

"Ibrahimovic is a great player who can make the difference all by himself. I always used to watch him on television and it's an honour to now be playing alongside him," the Italy international told Sportitalia.

"For me Ibra is the best.

"We had a good season. We won the league title, which was our main objective. We were delighted and we want to repeat that success this season."

Verratti made 27 Ligue 1 appearances in his first season for PSG.
