I bought "I Am Zlatan Ibrahimovic" which my son is enjoying

Any other suggestions please?

Yes but can't remember the author. Will check when I'm at work on Thursday.

Would the Dino FC series be any good?

DS1 has just devoured the entire Jamie Johnson Series and is now reading the Tom Palmer Foul Play ones.

Definitely the Jamie Johnson series by Dan Freedman - and there's loads of them. Frank Lampard has just brought out a series but they may be a bit young for your son. Your son must be quite an advanced reader to be reading the Ibrahimovic book at 9. My eldest son has just really enjoyed the two Secret Footballer books (The First is Tales From the Secret Footballer) but they may be a bit old for your son at the moment.

Are those Secret Footballer ones any good? DS is nearly 9 but quite a good reader and was looking at those for his birthday.

Thanks for the suggestions

I bought one of the Frank Lampard ones but he wasn't interested

He's not really up to reading all of the Zlatan book but it's a huge struggle to find anything he will read apart from Match magazine and the sports pages in the paper
