Marseille sporting director Jose Anigo PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is not the best player Ligue 1 has ever seen.
Anigo’s side sit atop of the Ligue 1 standings with 18 points out of the 21 available so far, with the French capital club a further three points adrift. The winner of their clash on Sunday will be top of the standings after eight matches.
However, Anigo – who coached Marseille between 2001 and 2005 – guiding them to their last European final in 2004, played down Ibrahimovic’s impact on French football, despite the Swedish star’s goalscoring form in France.
“It is not as (if he is) the best the league has ever seen. We had (Enzo) Francescoli, (Dragan) Stojkovic, and (Didier) Drogba,” the 51-year-old told Sport365.
“If you give me the choice between Drogba and Zlatan, for many reasons I (will pick) Didier, even at his age.”
