– Zlatan Ibrahimovic has set a new record in the history of the Champions League
– He is now the only player who has played for seven different clubs in the competition
– The 36-year-old striker achieved this when he played for Man Utd on November 22
Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Wednesday, November 22, 2017 registered his name in the UEFA history books by becoming the first player to represent seven different clubs in the Champions League.
The 36-year-old Swedish professional football star achieved this success when he came on as a second half substitute in Manchester United’s defeat at Basel.
United’s Wednesday’s Champions League tie against Basel was Ibrahimovic’s debut in the competition for the Premier League club after helping the Red Devils to win the Europa League last term.
Ibrahimovic made his Champions League debut for Dutch club Ajax in 2001, and went to play for Italian club Juventus, Inter Milan AC Milan, Spanish club Barcelona and French side Paris-Saint-Germain.
