Check out Zlatan Ibrahimovic's dream team and the best player he has played with

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's career has taken him all over Europe, playing some of the world's best teams and with many legends of the game.

So it is no surprise that when the Swede told Paris Saint-Germain's television channel his dream team, made up of the best 11 players he's even played with, it should have a formidable look about it.

But, also unsurprisingly, the array of talent on offer was not so great that the PSG striker failed to find room for himself. Here are the 10 superstars that Ibrahimovic picked to play alongside him.

1. Goal Keeper - Gigi Buffon.

Italy No 1 Buffon played with Ibrahimovic during the striker's two seasons at Juventus.

2. Right back - Lillian Thuram 

Another member of the Juventus team that Ibrahimovic spearheaded in the mid-2000s, Thuram is Zlatan's pick on the right side of his illustrious back four.

3. Centre back - Thiago Silva

To understand his importance, one need look no further than the appalling defensive display in Brazil's 7-1 World Cup final defeat by Germany, or PSG's slow start to the season this year, both in his absence, to understand his importance.

4. Centre back - Fabio Cannavaro 

Another World Cup-winner and a defender who has won the Ballon d'Or, it's hard to argue with the selection of Cannavaro in any team.

5. Left Back - Maxwell 

Perhaps the least-heralded member of this team, Maxwell might be in Zlatan's dream team as something of a friendly face.

6. Right midfield - Andres Iniesta 

7. Centre midfield - Patrick Vieira

8. Central midfield - Xavi 

9. Left midfield - Pavel Nedved 

10. Forward - Lionel Messi 

11. Forward - Zlatan Ibrahimovic
