Sweden and Juventus star, Dejan Kulusevski has opened up on the differences between footballing superstars, Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with the youngster playing with both the players during his career so far.

Kulusevski has played with Ibrahimovic during a few national team games earlier this year, only for the 39-year-old to suffer an injury earlier in the year which caused him to miss the ongoing 2020 European Championships.

The 21-year-old has also got the opportunity to share a dressing room with Ronaldo after moving to Juventus in the 2020/21 season and when asked about the difference between the two players - he reiterated that he has learnt a lot from both of them.

“They are two completely different people, two different personalities, but they have things in common. Both are great leaders, they like to take in the group, laugh and make fun. I like both of their personalities and like being close to them," he told Sportbladet.

“I watch everything they do and I ask about things as well. It was a blessing that Zlatan was part of the national team, I was a little afraid that I would never get to play with him. I’m glad that I got that opportunity."

The youngster saw his country getting knocked out of the ongoing 2020 European Championship after they lost 2-1 to Ukraine in extra time in the round of 16 stage.
