Ibrahimovic: I'm better than Messi

AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic insists that he doesn't need an accolade like the FIFA Ballon d'Or to prove to himself that he is the best in the world.

• Liga trio on Ballon d'Or shortlist

Ibrahimovic, known for his high level of self-confidence, was not on the 23-man shortlist for the award but when asked which of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi was the better player and favourite to take home the prize, he simply said: "In my head I am the strongest of all. I certainly don't need the Ballon d'Or to prove that I am number one."

However, Messi is tipped to take the award for the third year running, and former Barcelona team-mate Ibrahimovic can see why he is viewed so highly.

"Messi is very strong and I hope he continues in that way", Ibrahimovic told Telefoot. "He has won almost everything and is still very young."

The 2011 Ballon d'Or winner will be announced at the start of January.
