Zlatan.me is a fan-based website that tells you everything you ever wanted to know about the Swedish football hero Zlatan Ibrahimovic. From pitch performance to transfer and training news, plus behind the scenes gossip (of which there is generally a bit as far as Ibrahimovic is concerned!), we’ve got it all covered right here at Zlatan.me
Ibrahimovic: the new era
We have appreciated his footballing prowess as part of Inter Milan for the past three years, but we’re really excited about what Ibrahimovic can do with treble title winners Barcelona. The La Liga, Copa del Rey and Champions League champions have paid £40 million for the previous season’s Serie A top goal scorer in a swap deal that sees their key striker Samuel Eto’o move to Inter. Ibrahimovic has made no secret of his desire to move to Barca, having refused talks with all other interested parties in favour of the Spanish champs. At the same time, Eto’o only has one year remaining on his Barca contract so the team were willing to sell and let Eto’o go on to experience new horizons.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is already proving his worth with some quality football in his debut for Barcelona. He scored in the Spanish league opening game to help defending champions Barca to a 3-0 victory over Sporting Gijon – an impressive start for the new player and a clear statement from Barcelona. With Real Madrid packing some serious heavyweights after a massive summer spending spree, it will be even more difficult for Barcelona to defend their title – concise and confident early wins will be crucial to stamping their strength on the league tables.
World Cup Ibrahimovic
Well renowned as a bad boy of football, Zlatan’s hot and cold relationship with the Swedish national team chiefs is well documented. His on and off pitch antics often land him in trouble so directing his talents and controlling his frustrations is the ongoing challenge for his coaches, managers and team mates. Perhaps now he is living his dream at Barcelona and off to a fruitful start, we’ll see some great things from him under the crest of the Swedish shirt.
So, check in regularly with zlatan.me for all the latest updates in the world of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. There are exciting times ahead for this hot blooded striker from Sweden and we’ll be following him closely as he carves out his new career in Barcelona and, with any luck, brings some glory to Sweden in the World Cup (that’s if you’re Swedish of course!).
