4. Zlatan Ibrahimovic
The Swedish superstar has never struggled for self-confidence. Zlatan channeled his absolute self-assurance to produce one of the most brilliant, bonkers footballer’s autobiographies of all time.
‘I am Zlatan Ibrahimovic’ intersperses sections sticking the boot into Pep Guardiola with gleeful anecdotes of his utterly bizarre extra-curricular exploits.
Explosive extracts from Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s new book:
“I’d die for Jose but Guardiola’s a spineless coward – and Wenger made me feel like a little boy“
“Jose Mourinho kicked a flip chart across a room to fire up his team“
“Pep Guardiola ‘had no b***s” and insisted that Guardiola tried to ‘wreck’ him.
Ibrahimovic says Guardiola was “like a brick wall”
“‘Whenever life’s at a standstill I need some action. I always drive like a maniac. I’ve done 325 kilometers an hour in my Porsche Turbo and left the cops eating my dust.”
“One time I got dressed in all black, Rambo-style, and took a massive pair of bolt-cutters and nicked a military bike.”
