Stockholm:

AC Milan's star forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic will tell all in an autobiography due out in Sweden later this month, including details of his fiery rows with FC Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola.

In the book, entitled "I Am Zlatan Ibrahimovic", Ibra says he considered quitting football for good in 2009-2010 when things reached rock-bottom with Guardiola, according to Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet which published excerpts on Thursday.

The pair had a frosty relationship and had a major blow-out after a Champions League match against Villareal when Ibra was only allowed to play five minutes at the end of the game, after which he confronted Guardiola.

"I screamed: 'You have no ba**s!' And things probably much worse than that, and then I added: 'You shit yourself for Mourinho. You can go to hell!' I was totally crazy," he writes in the book, according to Aftonbladet.

"If I were Guardiola I would've been scared," he added, according to other excerpts published in Expressen.
