Carlo Ancelotti will take on his former team Paris Saint-Germain in a friendly on Saturday afternoon when the French champions take on Real Madrid.
The Italian coached the French team to the French league championship in 2012-13 but moved to Real Madrid this summer.
Aside from Ancelotti’s storyline, the match will pit two of the great players in the game: Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The former recently broke a young boy’s arm in preseason, while the latter made note that Ronaldo is not the best player in the world.
“Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best players in the world,” he told reporters on Friday. “The fact that he is often linked to PSG, this is normal, because the project of the club is to become the best in Europe and therefore attract the best players.”
Later on he told reporters that he did not believe Ronaldo was the top player in the world. “No, he’s one of the best – not the best,” said Ibrahimovic.
The Swedish captain is known for running his mouth and has even called out Lionel Messi for not having accomplished enough to be considered the greatest player in the world
