thumbnail Hello,

The shot-stopper compared the 30-year-old striker to past Ligue 1 greats, and stated that his ruthlessness in one-on-ones situations can make people angry

Lille goalkeeper Mickael Landreau talked about the difficulty of going up against Zlatan Ibrahimovic after the Swede bagged two goals in Paris Saint-Germain's 2-1 victory on Sunday.

The Frenchman compared the striker to other players that have troubled him in recent years, and said that the former AC Milan man may be the best of them all.

"He almost mocks you. In the first match against Pauleta, I conceded three. In the first game against Lisandro, I conceded three as well. Here, Ibrahimovic scored two in 21 minutes!" he rued.

"Ibra is of the same calibre and perhaps even a little better."

The Dogues No.1 also complained that no matter how well-prepared he thinks he is, the 30-year-old striker always comes out on top.

"In one-on-one situations, I felt ready and in place to stop him, but he finds the net every time.

"You
rage because you say that next time it will improve."

Meanwhile, PSG sporting director Leonardo stated that he was pleased with the manner of victory on Sunday evening, especially given his side's poor record against Lille.

"We're happy, not only with the victory, but also the way it was won," he said.

"It's been 15 years since the club won at Lille.

"This is the beginning of what we are imagining. It's hard to put everything in place immediately.

"We made a lot
of changes; the coach, 17 players. We tried to change everything, right away."

As well as Ibrahimovic, les Parisiens brought in Thiago Silva, Marco Verratti, Lucas Moura and Ezequiel Lavezzi this summer, and announced on Monday that they had concluded a deal for Ajax right-back Gregory Van der Wiel.
