Zlatan vs. Messi: Who is the Better Individual Player?

Former AC Milan manager Arrigo Sacchi recently discussed the possible return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic to the San Siro and offered up his thoughts on the Paris Saint-Germain striker.

Ibrahimovic is one of the greats. If football were an individual sport, I think he would even be superior to [Lionel] Messi. – Arrigo Sacchi

Of course the caveat in that quote is “individual sport,” which soccer is not and comparing the two is nearly impossible since both have completely different playing styles.

But I’ll play Sacchi’s little game and offer up two clips featuring unbelievable individual play from both the Argentine and Swede. Let us know in the comment section who you think is the better individual player.
