Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been moved to praise Marco Verratti, claiming that the youngster is ‘constantly evolving’.
The Italy international has been an almost constant presence in the Paris Saint-Germain team this season, playing in 16 League games so far.
And the Swedish superstar has claimed that the 21-year-old is indicative of PSG’s upward surge recently.
“The team is progressing well,” he told a Press conference. “We have made a big jump in a short time.
“But we have to continue to work as hard as possible if we want to compete in all competitions.
“Many of our players are constantly evolving, which helps us – players like Verratti add a lot.”
