There are just a few footballers with electrifying performances and incredible skills. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is no doubt one of these few; he even regards himself as the finest there has ever been. We can’t exactly argue with that anyway. One thing that is like a second skin to the world’s golden foot is his cockiness and exaggerated confidence. From his incredible on-pitch delivery to his many trophies and awards, Zlatan has broken several world records including a 15-year trophy streak.

He is such a national hero that a verb in the dictionary has been coined after him. “To Zlatan” means to dominate with extreme talent.

His family is everything to him and it would amaze you to know that this proud icon is a completely different person when around the loves of his life.

Helena Seger (partner)
Duration of Relationship: 2002 till present
Date of Birth: August 25, 1970
Zodiac Sign: Virgo
For some years now, the self-styled Manchester United star has been practically inseparable from Swedish model Helena. Seger is 11 years older than her legendary husband and they both met in 2002. Her first impression of Zlatan was a “crude, flashy yob” but as life would have it, her rare disapproval of him was what turned Zlatan on since he was used to having girls rolling at his feet everywhere he went. Ibrahimovic hardly gives his wife gifts just because “she already has Zlatan”!
The Smart Helena is a graduate of economics and worked as a children’s TV presenter. At the time when they met, she was living well as a successful marketing executive but Zlatan has definitely brought her way a lifestyle of incredible luxury. Aside being Ibrahimovic’s trophy wife, she is known to be a hardworking business woman whose beauty has been turning heads since she worked at a pub at the age of 17.

Bosnian’s golden boy says he is displeased even when his sons joke and call him Zlatan. He definitely has a very soft and fatherly side to him. At home, Ibrahimovic says he is not the man everyone wants an autograph of but rather, he is a 100% family man. Knowing that Zlatan received his first pair of boots at the age of five, are there signs that young Maximilian might follow in his dad’s steps?

Vincent Ibrahimovic (son with Helena Seger)
Date of Birth: March 6, 2008
Zodiac Sign: Pisces
Before the birth of his first son, Zlatan was already setting some values straight in his heart. For example, he had decided that his sons must know him as their “Pappa” and call him so instead of seeing him just as the world superstar “Zlatan Ibrahimovic”. For now, he says discipline and respect are important values he is instilling and that as long as they are not 18, they are under his roof and must abide with his rules.
Zlatan maintains a special relationship with his boys and they were some influence in his decision to join the United because they wanted to see their dad play for the English club.
