Zlatan Ibrahimovic: Nedum Onuoha compares Cristiano Ronaldo temperament in wake of controversial MLS bust-up

accreditation
In the wake of Zlatan Ibrahimovic being accused of unsportsmanlike conduct in the MLS, the Swede has faced further criticism in a comparison with Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
 
Former Manchester City defender Nedum Onohua and Ibrahimovic have been at the centre of a highly publicised feud following the clash between LA Galaxy and Real Salt Lake.
 
The towering defender claims Ibrahimovic acted like a 'complete thug' after the pair became embroiled in an on-pitch duel in a heated second half in which Ibrahimovic scored the winning goal.
 
Onuoha, 32, played in a number of high-profile games against Manchester United while Ronaldo was at the club.
 
And he hailed the five-time Ballon d'Or winner as a player of more class than Ibrahimovic before as he lifted the lid on their incredible bust-up.
 
Ibrahimovic did apologise to Onuoha after the game but the Real Salt Lake ace claimed he thought it was 'fake' and insinuated that the agenda of the striker is that he feels superior as a human being.
 
 
"When I played against Cristiano Ronaldo when he was younger, he'd be a bit temperamental," he said, as quoted by Express.
 
"But that was his pure desire to win, not necessarily to disrespect the opponent, which is what I think this guy is doing.
 
"It seemed like it was me upsetting him more, which is crazy from a guy who will go down as one of the greatest of all time in Europe."
 
The Nigeria-born defender went on to explain that the iconic Swede threatened to break his legs during their league encounter.
 
"It's one thing to be competitive but it's another thing to be threatening harm against another professional," he explained.
 
"So I was playing with that over my head, thinking every time I came close to him 'is this going to be the time?'. That's not the way you're supposed to play the game."
