Sweden and Former AC Milan star Zlatan Ibrahimovic has often made his way to the headlines. He is often termed as one of the most arrogant players to ever play the game. Although his gameplay is second to none and one might say for the kind of player he is, he deserved to be arrogant. He has been together with Helena Seger, who is almost 10 years older than him, for more than two decades. Although they are happy together now, that wasn’t the case when they first met. Rather they met because of a parking lot rant.
In an interview, Helena Seger revealed the unusual way they met. She claimed that she furiously went over to Ibrahimovic to tell him to move his car that was blocking her vehicle in and it was love at first sight. Helena said, “He had parked his Ferrari badly in a car park in Malmo. He had done so in a way that prevented my Mercedes from coming out. Quite gruffly, I told him to move it right away. And yes, he saw something that he liked.”
Both she and the former Manchester United star are known for their sometimes fiery personality and dedication to their profession. While talking about how people recognize her today, she said, “I don’t want to be labeled simply as the wife of a player, or the winner of a beauty contest. I think people don’t know how much I have studied, worked, and fought.”
Seger is a model and also manages her business portfolio. Reports suggest she is in charge of a real estate company in Italy. Ibrahimovic retired from professional football after missing out on the better part of the whole season due to injury.
