The 39-year-old was asked about LA Lakers superstar James and while praising him, he had a few other words.

"(LeBron) is phenomenal at what he's doing, but I don't like when people have some kind of status, they go and do politics at the same time," the Swede said per USA Today.

"Do what you're good at. Do the category you do. I play football because I'm the best at playing football. I don't do politics. If I would be a political politician, I would do politics.

"That is the big first mistake people do when they become famous and they become in a certain status. Stay out of it. Just do what you do best because it doesn't look good."

James has been a huge social activist in recent years and helped organise the "More Than a Vote" campaign - in an attempt to get Americans to polling stations.

He said: "I don't need to describe Ronaldo, 'The Phenomenon'.

"The way he was moving, the way he did his stepovers, the way he did 'the snake'. The way he was moving, for me he's the greatest player through history, no doubt."

'O Fenomeno' finished his club career with 352 goals in 518 appearances, while he hit 62 in 98 for his country - including 15 in World Cup tournaments.
