Ibrahimovic one of the best players in the world, says Stekelenburg

The Netherlands international has taken the time to praise the powerful forward ahead of this weekend's Serie A encounter between Luis Enrique's men and the Rossoneri
Roma goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg has singled out Zlatan Ibrahimovic as AC Milan's main attacking threat ahead of Saturday's Serie A clash at San Siro.

The Netherlands international feels that the former Barcelona striker is one of the best players in the world, and disagrees with the criticism that Ibrahimovic often fails to shine in European competitions.

"Ibrahimovic is a very strong player who always scores plenty of goals. He has won league titles with several big clubs and I think he is one of the best players in the world," Stekelenburg said to Corriere dello Sport.

"I disagree with those who say that he is decisive in the league, but not in Europe. I don't know why people would say that. I would always want Zlatan in my team."

Saturday's game kicks off at 18.00CET as Roma look to improve on their current sixth-place position in Serie A.
