121699Zlatan as a kid


Zlatan Ibrahimović  was born in 1981 in Malmö, Sweden. He had very tough childhood. He grew up in dangerous neigbourhood, called the ghetto. His mother was a cleaning lady and sometimes she hit him with her wooden spoon, and when his mother hit him so hard that the wooden spoon broke, he had to go buy another one thinking that it was his fault. He got kicked out the house a lot and outside his building there was a pitch and of course he spent most of his time there. If he was from a safer family where he could stay at home maybe he wouldn't be out to the pitch so much.

121704Zlatan in Manchester United has already had a very successful career and he is still playing football. That is amazing, because he is pretty old for a footballer. Last year he had a terribly injury, but he didn't give up. He had to train a lot and just be positive, believe he is going to make it. Then eventually he recovered. He uploaded a motivational video on youtube, where he is saying " So you think that i am done? You don't know me, all my life I had to fight. "

121705Thumbnail of his video video is very special to me, because it always motivates me, even when hard time comes. In this video he also used very well known speech of Sylvester Stallone in the film Rocky Balboa. I would recommend you all to watch his video, it is called It's possible, I hope you will like it as much as I do.
