If one reviews the love lives of the main players worldwide, one can see that Lionel Messi and Antonela Roccuzzo are already married after many years of dating; Cristiano Ronaldo and Georgina Rodríguez have also been a couple for a long time; Neymar's single but living fleeting romances with different models and singers; and the names of Zlatan Ibrahimovic with Helena Seger, who have been a couple for more than 18 years.
Now, why aren't they married if they already have two children, Maximilian and Vincent? "Marriage? Marrying him could disrupt my life. I don't want to be labeled a player's wife. People know how much I have studied, worked and struggled", Seger said in an interview.
Seger, who also has two children with Ibrahimovic, was already a successful businesswoman when she met who she's today her partner. From humble origins, Helena worked for years as a waitress and model in order to pay for her studies. Later, she went to work as a salesperson at a major apparel brand and ended up becoming the CEO of the company. At that point, she already had a master's degree in economics. However, her big leap came when she became the marketing manager for the Swatch watch company.
It was around those years that they met. She was 32 and he, who was at that time taking his first steps in Ajax, 21. "He left his Ferrari badly parked in Malmo, which prevented my Mercedes from leaving. With a bit of brusqueness I told him to move it and so seeing that he liked it, "he told Elle magazine when they asked him about the time they met. In addition, giving a clear sample of his character, she expressed: "It is not easy to live with him. But neither with me".
To close, she told what she likes the most about Ibrahimovic: "He has something that I also have and that is that we both have an important background and we have built our careers with sacrifice."
