Who Is Zlatan Ibrahimovic?
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a Swedish international football player who is currently playing the last spell of his career at LA Galaxy. He was born on 3rd October 1981 in Malmo, Sweden to Sefic Ibrahimovic and Jurka Gravic.
His father, Sefic Ibrahimovic, was a Bosnian Muslim and immigrated to Sweden in 1977. Zlatan’s mother was a Catholic and belonged to Croatia.
She also migrated to Sweden. Mr. and Mrs. Ibrahimovic were both immigrants and met in Sweden for the first time. They fell in love and got married there.
Zlatan has been named as one of the best and prolific strikers of the modern era. He has played for some of the best clubs in the world and is one of the most decorated players ever to grace the game.
From playing for a club like Malmo FC to playing for FC Barcelona and becoming the 3rd highest paid football player in the world while at AC Milan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has earned a net worth of $190 million.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s parents were financially poor. He had to work as a kid to help his parents meet the ends. He was born in Sweden but had a Croatian ancestry.
Zlatan never had a passion for playing football until he was given a pair of boots at the age of 6. He was not a talented player, but he knew hard work. He knew that working hard could get him some extraordinary results.
On various occasions, Zlatan has mentioned how he had a tough childhood and had to work hard to earn. He once mentioned that he stole a bike to go to football training while he was just an underaged teenager.
As a kid, he switched a couple of football academies in his hometown. However, he was a regular starter for the youth team of Malmo FC by the age of 12.
Zlatan almost quit football when he was 15 years old as he wanted to join docks to help his family financially. He didn’t see a future in football.
However, his coach at the time talked him into continue playing football. Zlatan himself will be glad that he listened to his coach. Without football, he might not have a net worth as big as $190 million.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has had a great career. He is known for zero loyalty to a football club but has won a league title in almost every club he has played in. However, he has been crucial and clinical for every club he has played for.
He started with his youth club Malmo FC in 1999. Zlatan was on the bench for most of the games but showed a great promise. During this time, Arsene Wenger tried to sign him for Arsenal FC but two of them couldn’t see eye to eye.
In 2001, he signed for Ajax where he made his name under Ronald Koeman. However, he had to leave by 2004 due to a controversy with a team-mate.
He then joined Juventus FC and was a part of their starting XI. In 2006, Zlatan joined direct rivals Inter Milan after Juventus were relegated to Serie B due to a controversy.
Zlatan rose to his peak at Inter and scored the most goals in Serie A in the 2008-09 season. However, he joined FC Barcelona in 2010 and had an instant impact.
But he had problems with the Spanish coach Pep Guardiola who was FC Barcelona’s boss at the time. After only one season, Zlatan left for AC Milan on loan and signed a four years contract.
In 2012, PSG came in and signed the Swedish international. The player stayed at the club until 2016 when he joined the newly appointed coach, Jose Mourinho, at Manchester United.
At PSG, he won 4 consecutive League 1 titles and various other trophies alongside the top scorer award for each of the season. His time at PSG was glorious for his career and he earned a lot of money as well.
In 2016, Zlatan joined Manchester United after his contract ran out. The start was great for the Swedish international. However, he had a long injury and couldn’t live up to the expectation.
In 2018, Zlatan Ibrahimovic joined the MLS side LA Galaxy. Although the club is not up to his standards, it is probably his last spell and the 36 years old will be retiring soon.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been a star wherever he has played. His pay scale has always been high. At AC Milan, his yearly income was enough to get him into the list of top 3 highest paid players in the world.
Moreover, his popularity and personality have earned him a number of high paying sponsorship and advertisement deals.
Overall, Zlatan Ibrahimovic net worth is almost $190 million and is expected to increase majorly once he is retired.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic Salary: $1.2 million
This is a fairly smaller amount than one would have expected Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s salary to be. But this is what he is earning at LA Galaxy. MLS is a small league and even the big clubs there couldn’t afford much.
Any other top club would have offered Zlatan a whole lot better salary package but wouldn’t be able to give Zlatan a regular start. At LA Galaxy, he is getting a lot of playing time but had to compromise on the salary.
However, his salary at Manchester United was $35 million per annum. It was huge considering that he couldn’t contribute much to Manchester United’s success.
The Swedish football player, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, has been in a relationship with a woman 11 years older than himself. Her name is Helena Segar.
Although the footballer is a self-centered and arrogant person who finds it difficult to see eye to eye with others, he seems to be holding on to his spouse very well.
The couple has been together for more than a decade now and has a son and a daughter named Maximillian Ibrahimovic and Vincent Ibrahimovic respectively.
Here are some pictures of Helena Segar.
