Besides scoring tremendous amounts of goals for every club he has played for, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has become known for his self confidence and the fact he loves to pull pranks on people close to him.
Very little is known of Helena Seger, Zlatan’s wife, a Swedish model, who the Manchester United star rarely talks of in public.
In Zlatan’s famous autobiography, he discusses how he met Helena but continues to keep his family well out of the limelight.
A truly Zlatan story
On Sunday, a truly Zlatan story has emerged of the present he gave to his wife for Christmas.
According to The Sun, Zlatan gave his wife a framed snap of Manchester United’s goal celebration for their opener at West Brom in December.
This featured Zlatan jumping in the air, and Jesse Lingard in a state of shock.
The picture was given to Zlatan by a staff member at Manchester United and the super Swedish striker passed it onto his wife Helena.
“He’s not shy of a wind-up or two”
A “source” told The Sun: “Ibra was cracking up about the picture and said he would take it home to give his wife for Christmas. He got it a couple of days before so it was an easy gift. Some of the lads and staff at Carrington were laughing about it – he’s not shy of a wind-up or two.”

According to the many urban myths about Zlatan, he was once asked what he got his wife for her birthday, and answered “Nothing, she already has Zlatan.”
