Review

Eagerly awaited, not least because Ibra seems to be spoiling for a fight on every other page. 'Dynamite' said one Swedish reporter (Daily Mail on I AM ZLATAN)

The best footballer's autobiography of recent years is probably I Am Zlatan Ibrahimovic . . . In fact, having sold 700,000 copies in Sweden alone and been published in 15 countries, it's probably the bestselling European immigrant's tale since Zadie Smith's White Teeth (2000). The book was also shortlisted for Sweden's prestigious literary award, the August Prize . . . Once you get past the obligatory snigger prompted by the phrase "footballer's autobiography", you can see that Zlatan's book strangely resembles an earlier immigrant's tale: Portnoy's Complaint (1969), Philip Roth's classic novel about growing up Jewish in 1930s and 1940s Newark, New Jersey (Simon Kuper)

Product Description

AM ZLATAN - the explosive, critically-acclaimed memoir of Zlatan Ibrahimovich, one of the world's most gifted and controversial footballers



'Guardiola has no balls. He drove me like a Fiat . . . I'm a Ferrari'



Zlatan Ibrahimovic - professional football's most mercurial player, Swedish national hero, tabloid fixture, fashion icon, modern-day philosopher and black belt in Taekwondo. Born to a Muslim father from Bosnia, and a Catholic mother from Croatia, Zlatan recounts his extraordinary life story, from his poverty-stricken upbringing as an outsider in Malmö;, Sweden, to becoming one of the world's most sought-after and expensive players, gracing Europe's finest clubs, from Ajax to Juventus, Internazionale to Barcelona, Milan to Paris Saint-Germain.



I AM ZLATAN reveals a rare and ferocious intelligence, willpower and God-given talent most recently exhibited when Zlatan scored all 4 goals for Sweden in a 4-2 victory against England. His fourth goal, a 30-yard overhead kick with his back to goal is widely regarded as one of the greatest goals of all time. The BBC described it as a goal that 'combined unfathomable imagination and expert technique'.



For fans of The Secret Footballer and Football Manager Stole My Life this no holds barred football memoir is every bit as dramatic and revealing as Roy Keane's classic autobiography.



'The best footballer's autobiography of recent years is probably I Am Zlatan Ibrahimovic . . .' Simon Kuper, author of Why England Always Lose



'Eagerly awaited, not least because Ibra seems to be spoiling for a fight on every other page. 'Dynamite' said one Swedish reporter' Daily Mail on I AM ZLATAN

5.0 out of 5 stars Ibra! 2 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
As a massive fan of Zlatan i was worried this book might change my opinion of him. However in actual fact it made me even more of a fan. This controversial but truthful insight into his life provides surprise at every turn of a page. Even if your not a fan, this book will hook you in for a rolla coaster ride of admiration and controversy!

4.0 out of 5 stars He's crazier than you thought 21 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
You will probably only read this once but be in histerics at various parts. It is commendable that he is as straight-talking as you get, resulting in much unintentional humour. The only question is whether his grudge with Pep Guardiola is bigger than Roy Keane's grudge with Alex Ferguson? My conclusion is that he is crazier than I thought!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent autobiography 26 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Tells his story exactly as it happened and pulls no punches.
Totally honest about his difficult upbringing and his anti-social behaviour.
Very impressed with his recollection of the numerous important games he played in and how he contributed to ensuring his team won these vital matches.
I never previously liked "Zlatan" as (in my opinion) he came across as a big headed show off who played for himself and not the team !
How wrong was i ? He was obviously totally focused on his team winning championships and cups as the record shows.
Thoroughly enjoyed the book which gave me a totally different perspective on this excellent footballer.
