Former Inter Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has launched an astonishing attack on his old club, claiming Barcelona are by far the better side.

Ibrahimovic left the Serie A champions in the summer after three years at the San Siro, moving to Barca as part of a swap deal which saw Samuel Eto'o go the other way.

The Sweden striker netted in each of his first five games for the Catalans and has no doubt that it was he, not Cameroon striker Eto'o, who made the best move.

"In Inter there weren't many players who could make the difference,'' Ibrahimovic told Barca magazine. "When someone wasn't good, the game became difficult.

"But at Barca, even if there is an absentee there is always someone who makes the difference and we win. This is what makes Barcelona a great team.''
