If Gerrard and Lampard had played together, no one would’ve talk about Xavi and Iniesta – Ibrahimovic
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has claimed that Xavi and Iniesta would not have been talked about if Liverpool legend and Chelsea legend, Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard played together at the club level.
Xavi and Iniesta both played for the Barcelona and Spanish teams and the duo were more recognized at Barcelona and regarded as one of the best midfield duo ever to grace the game.
Although Lampard and Gerrard both played for the English national team, they played against each other as rivals almost all through their careers.
Zlatan who currently plays for the current Serie A champion, AC Milan played alongside Xavi and Iniesta briefly before moving away from the club to pursue his career elsewhere after falling out with then-manager, Pep Guardiola.
