Unfortunately, Zlatan Ibrahimovic had to watch the 2022 World Cup from home.
Now, it is completely clear to him who will lift the world cup.
"I think everything is already written in advance, and you know who I'm talking about," he said.
"I think Lionel Messi will lift the trophy, it's already written."
The veteran Swede was asked what he thought about Morocco, the first African team to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup, and replied: "I don't think it's a surprise, because they were good even before the World Cup. Of course, in the World Cup itself, anything can happen, maybe it's a bit surprising that they're in the semi-finals, but this A good team."
On Cristiano Ronaldo's crying after Portugal's surprising elimination, he said: "It doesn't matter what I say, everyone wants to win and not everyone can win. If you try and don't succeed, of course you will be sad. We will never know the real story about him and United. They will say Whatever they want, he will say whatever he wants to protect himself, that's how it is. Everyone is different, and everyone cares about their image. For me, the perfect image is simply being yourself."

The 41-year-old Zlatan continues his rehabilitation attempts, hoping to return to the pitch in a Milan uniform.
"I'm fine, getting better every day," he said.
"Unfortunately, I still have a date for my return, but when I feel ready, I will return. I really want to make an impact when I return, I no longer have the ego of ten years ago, today I am more mature, more responsible. I still feel the adrenaline, love the smell of the grass and the fans . I always want more."
He said about his attacking partner Rafael Laao: "This is the right environment for him, he has improved so much since he came here. He is a much more decisive and important player for us. He doesn't even understand how strong he is, when that happens he will be really scary."
