Zlatan and Mido took turns as strikers in the past year. The two friends are in a completely different surrounding during the winter break. One can be found in warm and sunny Egypt, the other will be surrounded by snow and cold.
Where do you celebrate Christmas and/or New Year’s Eve?
Zlatan: ,,For me Christmas means a good time with family. Have nice food, relax and of course snow. I am going to Sweden. I’ll celebrate New Year with my friends.’’
Mido: ,,I am spending Christmas with my wife. I’m going back to Egypt. We celebrate New Year, unlike Christmas, in Egypt. Then there are little parties everywhere. But it is not such a big celebration as in Europe.’’
What was the most important in 2002?
Zlatan: ,,That I developed my game and got used to the system.’’
Mido: ,,We won the double and I got married.’’
Expectations for 2003?
Zlatan: ,,We will win the title and the cup. And get as far as possible in the Champions League.’’
Mido: ,,I want to win the Golden Ball. Not of Africa, but of Europe. And for my personal life? No Zlatan, I don’t want to have children yet. I hope for happiness for my little and my big family. My little family are my wife and I, and my big family is the one with my parents, brothers and sister.’’
With whom would you like to drink champagne?
Zlatan: ,,With the team. Oh no, I won’t see them during the holidays. Then it depends where I am. Probably with friends.’’
Mido: ,,I do not drink champagne. But if I would, then with my wife.’’
