The book “I am Zlatan” taught a student with Down syndrome to read. When Zlatan Ibrahimovic was was told the news, he gave the young man a signed jersey.
– Now Christoffer can read without major problems, says his teacher.
Christoffer Carlsson in Vellinge (Swedish city) is a special education student with Down syndrome. He could not previously read but having starting to read Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s autobiography quickly made him aware of his love of reading. Cristoffer started reading the book when he heard that the class reading group would read a readable version of the book.
– After a while, he read himself, the first few lines and then more and more. Now Christoffer can read without major problems, says Christoffer Lindhe’s teacher.
When Zlatan Ibrahimovic was told of this news he got very happy and quickly went to get a PSG jersey for the kid.
– Zlatan ran into the apartment and picked up a jersey which he autographed and asked me to send it to Cristoffer. He thought it was fun to hear, said Dan Olofsson.
The jersey is now available in Vellinge in Christoffer Carlsson’s home. Cristoffer himself is also playing football. His biggest idol, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He was very happy when he received the gift of his great idol.
– Great fun. I’ll have it on Saturday at my birthday party, said Christoffer.
This wonderful story got a happy ending when Zlatan got to see a picture of Christopher with the shirt. Zlatan Ibrahimovic answered succinctly: “Awesome.”
