Without Me, Sweden Are Not So Good - Ibrahimovic

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has said Sweden are not as good as when he played for them, but they will still be an obstacle for Italy in their World Cup qualifying playoff.
"When Sweden play now, they don't play with any pressure. When I was playing everybody was expecting us to win the Euros and the World Cup, obviously because that's the pressure I put myself under and that's the pressure put on me from outside. It's something that I like," the Man United star told Sky Sport Italia..

"Nowadays, if Sweden win or lose, it's not like when I played. If I listen to my ego, I have to say that when I played we were better -- without me, they are not so good.

"Without Ibrahimovic maybe they are more of a team now but, as I've said, the difference is playing with pressure and expectations and playing without -- now they started from scratch again, everybody has the chance to prove themselves.

"When I was there, there was a different pressure. The squad was already made with a coach who had been there years. Now they have a new coach, less experience with new players -- they've started over."
