Robinho Reveals Zlatan Ibrahimovic Took On Gennaro Gattuso At Jiu-Jitsu In Training
By Mike Parrott
Former Brazilian star, Robinho, has revealed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic once took on Gennaro Gattuso at Jiu-Jitsu in training. Ibrahimovic owns a black belt in Martial Arts and you can guess who the winner was.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is known for a few things. His incredible longevity, his goal-scoring prowess, and being a Swedish hero.
However, his ferocity in training is still slightly underrated. His former teammate at AC Milan, Robinho, has revealed that Zlatan believed he could never lose and that his arrogance set him apart from all the other top talent in Football.
Robinho recalled in an interview with Marca: "Zlatan often said that he had convinced Milan to sign me...He'd say: 'you're here because of me'."

"Is he arrogant? Yes, but in a good way. He has confidence in his talent. "One day in training he challenged Gattuso to a jiu-jitsu fight. Right before your eyes you had this fierce guy doing martial arts against Zlatan - who is a black belt...Who won? Zlatan always wins..."

Gattuso was well-known for his fiery temperament as a player, with Andrea Pirlo revealing in his autobiography he used to stab his Milan team-mates with cutlery.
The Italian is infamously remembered for his bust-up with former Tottenham Assistant Manager, Joe Jordan at the San Siro after Tottenham beat the Milan side back in 2011.
