Habib admits Ibrahimovic invited him to Milan:
“Honestly, I wanted to try something interesting. I was bored of MMA. I really want to compete. Yes, I got an offer from a local football club called Al-Wasl. Fenerbahce also asked me to join this club. Zlatan Ibrahimovic even invited me to Milan!”
Moreover, he has revealed the inspirational message that Zlatan sent him prior to his victory against Gaethje.
“If you feel young, you are young. If you train hard, you train hard. And if you know you’re better than everybody, you’re better than everybody. You just have to do it.”
“People always talk when you’re number one. They just want to find something to go against you. It’s always the same s****.”– Ibrahimovic said.
The Swedish striker’s words seem to have had the desired effect, as Khabib won easily at UFC 254.
We also know a popular example when a famous athlete tried to become a football player: the sprint legend, Usain Bolt, has spent time on trial with a number of clubs but has now had to concede that no professional deal will be forthcoming.
“I don’t want to say it wasn’t dealt with properly, but I think we went about it, not the way we should and you learn your lesson, you live and you learn. It was a good experience. I really enjoyed just being in a team and it was different from track and field and it was fun while it lasted.”Bolt said.
Having left football behind, and sprinting in his past, Bolt explained he is focused on business going forward.
“I’m just doing many different things – the sports life is over, so I’m now moving into different businesses. I have a lot of things in the pipeline, so as I say, I’m just dabbling in everything and trying to be a businessman now.”Bolt added.
- Nurmagomedov is 32 now (Bolt tried to transit into football at the same age), which indicates that it is late to start a football career. But perfect physical form and media status will definitely be his great assets.
