“He’s one of the greatest strikers in the world,” said Chivu. “In every game he shows he’s number one and I’m pleased to be on his side, especially at this moment.
“I’m happy to see him relaxed and with the desire to work every day to become one of the best players of all.
“Ibra is decisive for Inter at the moment, but he’s also important for Italian football because it’s always nice to have a great champion playing in your country and in your championship.
“Physically a defender can never put himself on the same level as Ibra because he’s a beast.
“He can win the Golden Ball because he has won the championship in Italy and he’s proving decisive at the moment.
“But other players are favourites either because they won the Champions League or for other reasons. Ibra has started well, he will have a great season and he can win it next year if he doesn’t win it this time.”
