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.
