He added: "It's not easy to return after the injury he had, so I wish him all the best on his 37th birthday. [Gonzalo] Higuain can be as devastating as Ibra, he has less physicality but he brings us a lot of quality.
"In terms of character it's a lot more stressful to train with Ibra, Zlatan raises the tension. Pipita, on the other hand, is always willing to make his teammates smile."
