Read&Download I Am Zlatan: My Story On and Off the Field by Zlatan Ibrahimovic,Ruth Urbom Online


Daring, flashy, innovative, volatile—no matter what they
call him, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is one of soccer’s brightest stars. A
top-scoring striker and captain of the Swedish national team, he has
dominated the world’s most storied teams, including Ajax,
Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, and Paris Saint-Germain. But
his life wasn’t always so charmed.
 
Born to
Balkan immigrants who divorced when he was a toddler, Zlatan learned
self-reliance from his rough-and-tumble neighborhood. While his father, a
Bosnian Muslim, drank to forget the war back home, his mother’s
household was engulfed in chaos. Soccer was Zlatan’s release.
Mixing in street moves and trick plays, Zlatan was a wild talent who
rode to practice on stolen bikes and relished showing up the rich
kids—opponents and teammates alike. Goal by astonishing goal, the
brash young outsider grew into an unlikely prodigy and, by his early
twenties, an international phenomenon.
 
Told as only
the man himself could tell it, featuring stories of friendships and
feuds with the biggest names in the sport, I Am Zlatan is a
wrenching, uproarious, and ultimately redemptive tale for underdogs
everywhere.
Praise for I Am Zlatan

/>“Terrific . . . Far more insightful than your typical jock
memoir, Ibra’s book tells his story of growing up as the son of
immigrants in Sweden and pulls no punches when it comes to his opinions
of some of the biggest names in the game.”Sports
Illustrated

“The most compelling autobiography
ever to appear under a footballer’s
name.”The Guardian
 

“The story of Zlatan—from his days as an immigrant kid
juggling a soccer ball so he won’t get bullied to his emergence
as the genius player who scored the greatest goal ever—is as
compelling and fancy-footed as his game.”—Aleksandar
Hemon, National Book Award finalist and author of The Lazarus
Project

“I love this book. I love it because
it’s so much bigger than soccer. I Am Zlatan is a
story of hope and grit and what an immigrant kid who comes from nothing
can accomplish with hard work and belief in himself. It’s also a
beautiful window into our new, more open, more diverse
world.”—Marcus Samuelsson, bestselling author
of Yes, Chef

 
“Probably the
bestselling European immigrant’s tale since Zadie
Smith’s White Teeth . . . 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
.”—Financial Times
/>

“He is skillful. He is outspoken. He is
Zlatan.”The New York Times

 
“The best sports autobiography in
years.”PolicyMic
