This week Kevin-Prince Boateng said Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the best teammate he ever played with. Boateng and Ibra were teammates at AC Milan earlier this decade.

Boateng of course made a move to Barcelona in January and is now teaming with the man that most players would say is the best in the world, Lionel Messi. The reality is that Boateng just arrived at the Camp Nou and hasn’t teamed with Messi for that long.

When you’re asked about the best teammate you’ve had at a job you often say the one you have good memories with and helped perform at the highest level. Boateng reached the highest levels with Ibrahimovic. Perhaps once Boateng sees Messi in the later rounds of the Champions League this year, his answer will change.
