Zlatan’s immigrant parents met in Sweden, giving birth in the country in 1981. His parents divorced when Ibrahimovic was just 2 years old and he spent a difficult childhood in the immigrant-populated district of Rosengard. By his own account, he was a bicycle thief and school bully before he honed his football skills.

5. He has got a twin wax in Paris

The Swedish superstar has got a twin wax in Paris at a museum that is similar to England’s Madame Tussauds. If you look at both of them standing together, you can’t tell who is the real Zlatan.

4. RECORD: Scoring for Most teams in Champions League

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored for 6 different teams in Uefa Champions League namely: Ajax, Juventus, Internazionale, Barcelona, Milan and Paris Saint-Germain. He couldn’t extend that to seven clubs because Manchester United was eliminated by Sevilla before he got a chance to play. This is a record that neither Ronaldo nor Messi will ever come close.
