Born in Malmo, Sweden, in 1981, Zlatan Ibrahimovic started playing football when he was six years old with several different local clubs.

He was pursued by Arsenal, but instead transferred to Ajax in 2001. He won the Eredivisie title with the club in 2001-2002, and scored four times in the Champions League before Ajax was knocked out by A.C. Milan. In 2004, his tally against NAC earned "Goal of the Year" honors. He was moved to Juventus later that year after accusations from his teammate Rafael van der Vaart that Ibrahimovic hurt him on purpose. While with Juventus, he was awarded the Guldbollen, an honor given to the Swedish football player of the year. Ibrahimovic would go on to play with Internazionale, Barcelona, A.C. Milan, and Paris Saint-Germain. He is part of the Swedish national team, rejecting the opportunity to play for Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Ibrahimovic has played in several World Cup qualifiers and was named captain of the national team in 2012. Sweden failed to qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Ibrahimovic has attracted criticism for being involved in several fights, including some with his own teammates. He and long-time partner Helena Seger live in Paris and have two children together. He is fluent in five languages and was listed as the third best footballer in the world by "The Guardian" in late 2013.
