We've already gotten a glimpse of Zlatan Ibrahimovic's tough talk for Pep Guardiola revealed in his new autobiography, but any footballer autobiography that's going to sell like fireworks in Manchester needs more than that. So, Ibra also shares the pulse-racing details of last year's training ground bust-up between him and then teammate Oguchi Onyewu.

From Goal.com:

"Onyewu and I almost killed each other," said Ibrahimovic in his autobiography, titled 'I Am Zlatan Ibrahiovic', according to the Swedish press.

The former Inter star claimed that he suffered a broken rib as a result of the fight.

One broken rib! Clearly this brawl left them both Taekwondo black belt Ibrahimovic and Oguchi "The Incredible Hulk with a Beard" Onyewu inches from death. Even more amazing than that, however, is the fact that Zlatan's book actually contains seven straight words that do not accuse Guardiola of having no balls.
