I AM ZLATAN - the explosive, critically-acclaimed memoir of Manchester United star Zlatan Ibrahimovic, one of the world's most gifted and controversial footballers 'Why be a Fiat when you can be a Ferrari?' Welcome to planet Zlatan. This is the story of how a Swedish immigrant rose from poverty to become a football genius. In his own inimitable style, Zlatan recalls every struggle, every goal, and every training ground bust-up on his journey to dominate the world's top clubs, including Barcelona, PSG and now Manchester United. Full of wicked one-liners and amazing stories, Zlatan lifts the lid on some of the biggest names in football, including Guardiola, Messi and his new manager, Jose Mourinho. Moving, funny and totally frank, I am Zlatan is unlike any autobiography you have ever read. 'Wonderful - nothing less than a revelation. Ibrahimovic is the definitive modern sporting icon' - Matthew Syed 'The best sportsman's memoir since Andre Agassi...not just a bad boy's romp but the rise of a boy from the ghetto to the top of his profession and captain of his country. He is candid, funny and yes, wonderfully nuts' - The Times 'There's never a dull moment on Planet Zlatan. This is a snarling, fizzing, unrepentant firecracker of a book; if footballers' memoirs bore you, make an exception for this one' - Independentshow more
Really enjoyable read for any football fan.
It was meant to be a biography where footballers tell you their lives in detail. every minor detail. But this is not just a biography. It's more than that, Zlatan shows you a world that you've never seen and never knew. We always thought Zlatan is like the real Swedish House Mafia but he shown why he became the real mafiaso. Good read. Will feel sad that it's over when you finished reading.
The truth is that I used to despise Zlatan, especially as a person. A friend of mine, an Ibra fanatic begged me to read the book, and so I gave in. By the 4th chapter, I felt like I knew Zlatan personally and at a completely different level. He went from being the huge, built, cocky, long-haired tough guy, to the "little punk boy" that struggled to get through some difficult challenges in his early years. He detailed some events in such a vivid way that I had little difficulty imagining a young Zlatan living unpredictable nights and days. The book explains what makes him the way he is today. Zlatan IbrahimoviÃ?? grew on me by the end of the book, and I don't regret reading it.
