Publisher's Summary

'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 immigrant 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, and now Manchester United.

I Am Zlatan reveals a rare and ferocious intelligence, willpower and God-given talent most recently exhibited when Zlatan scored all four 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'.

Even if you're not into soccer!

Even though I'm not really into soccer (except when the Dutch national team is involved in the World Cup), I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Zlatan is a remarkable, likeable character with a remarkable career, who speaks honestly about an interesting world/sport/business I knew little about.

Terrible narration!

Why get an English guy to read the Zlatan story? Swedes speak English very well. A Swedish reader would have done far greater justice than Hillier. The story was brilliant, the narration was a total let-down!

You will fall in love with Zlatan

Inspirational and entertaining. Hard to stop listening. Great tale about a kid who was virtually tossed aside by all but achieved his biggest dreams, all by being himself. Highly recommend.

Excellent on all levels

An honest and awesome story, offering a great glimpse of Zlatan balancing his life as a caring family member and footballing god. The narration reflects the attitude of the text brilliantly, and is enjoyable to listen to.

Good book

Excellent book. Not so keen on the narration I slowed it to 0.8 speed to enjoy the narration as it felt a little rushed.
