Two Swedish football stars are present on British newspaper the Times’ list of Top 50 greatest Inter Milan players –both within the top 20.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic at number 19 may not come as a surprise. But he is beaten by another Swede at number 8 – Lennart “Nacka” Skoglund, who played for the team in the 1950’s.

Both Ibrahimovich and Skoglund have won two league titles with Inter Milan.

“He may have been Swedish, but his skills were decidedly South American. Skoglund was the consummate entertainer, a creative No 10 who set up goals for one of the most prolific front lines in history. A darling of the San Siro, he won two league titles with Inter. He was also a star for his country, leading Sweden to third place in the 1950 World Cup finals and second place eight years later, when they lost to Pelé’s Brazil,” the Times writes of Skoglund

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is placed before international stars like Ronaldo, Christian Vieri and Jurgen Klinsmann – but way behind Skoglund.

“A Swede of Bosnian and Croatian origins, Ibrahimovic is one of the most unorthodox strikers around: a giant of a man blessed with creativity and finesse, but also terrifying physical strength. He came to Inter from Juventus after the Calciopoli scandal and was an instant sensation, putting behind him some of the disciplinary problems that had plagued his early career. He has won two league titles with Inter,” writes the Times. (RM)
