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'.

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!

Pay Zlatan to read!

It’s an interesting book for anybody into soccer. But it’s a book written by Zlatan, read by a semi-bored British lad. He probably read it as well as he could, but that’s still not Zlatan!

why zlatan isn't narrating it?

why is Zlatan not narrating his own story? He's alive and well. Besides, Zlatan is Not from London. Disappointing

If you’re into soccer/football there’s really cool insight

Zlatan is a great player and it’s great to see his origins and perspective. Hearing his thought process for games and behind the scenes things like contracts etc is cool. I feel like listening to it helped me understand who he is and I like the fact that he talks about his insecurities and he acknowledges the things he was wrong about.

If you think you know who Zlatan is, trust me you don’t

Simply put, I’ve watched this man become a legend but never knew who he is until I got this book. From scale 0 to 100, I rate this book Zlatan out of 100

Zlatan but not zlatan

Love the book and story, but honestly.. A deep English accent just doesn't give me the Zlatan feeling.

Poor narration

This should be a great book, many have said it’s a great read, but the narrator is so poor. Reading way to fast doesn’t get the story across thus couldn’t carry on listening

thr narrator of this is completely wrong

I had to stop listening to this because the narrator is so wrong. Wouldn't expect zlatan to read it himself but they should have got someone who sounds atleast a bit like him.

Completely takes you out of it, don't recommend.

Getting to know the Man Behind the Image

I enjoyed listening to the audiobook. The narrator was engaging and I felt like I was listening to the man himself.

The Ibra story is an adventure. From his upbringing in his hometown Rosengård with his unconventional family to the famous clubs he played for. We learn about his strong desire to make it to the top stemmed from the many doubters he faced and how it drove him to becoming one of the world's best.

There were many interesting moments such as his encounter with Mino Raiola (his agent), his relationship with Guardiola and wonderful goals. However my favourite story was how he become good friends with a gamer he met online. That was awesome!

So if you're an Ibra fan, a football fan, a sports fan or just someone who enjoys an interesting and compelling read, I highly recommend this! Trust me. You won't regret it.

Zlatan

A very good listen and of course interesting stuff, however the terminology and poor English was terrible the book deserves better translation and football language.

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.
