BY coming on for Manchester United against Basel, Zlatan Ibrahimovic broke a Champions League record.
The iconic Swede became the first and only player to represent seven different sides in Europe’s elite club competition.
And inspired by Zlatan, our friends at Football Whispers took a look at some other famous and not so famous Champions League record holders.
Most appearances: Iker Casillas
Now 36, the legendary keeper has played 166 times in the Champions League for Real Madrid and Porto.
With the Spanish giants, he lifted the trophy three times, in 2000, 2002 and finally with their long-awaited Decima, the tenth win, in 2014.
The Spaniard also holds the record for the most clean sheets in the competition with 55.
Leading scorer: Cristiano Ronaldo
For many, Leo Messi is the greatest player of all time, but he lags behind his greatest rival in terms of Champions League goals.
The Portuguese forward has an impressive 113 in 145 games, the Barcelona legend has 97 in 120 matches.
Sixteen of Ronaldo’s Champions League goals were for Manchester United, while the rest were for Real Madrid.
Most goals in a single season: Cristiano Ronaldo
Perhaps given that no-one has managed more goals than Ronaldo, it’s no surprise that he also has scored the most in a single season.
In Real Madrid’s successful Decima campaign in 2013/14, CR7 played a huge role, scoring 17 throughout the competition, including one in the final as Los Blancos lifted the trophy.
When Real won the trophy again in 2015/16, Ronaldo netted 16 times, meaning he takes second place in the list too.
Youngest player: Celestine Babayaro
Babayaro’s Champions League debut for Anderlecht aged 16 years and 87 days in November 1994 was one to forget for the left-back, despite him becoming the youngest player in the competition.
His introduction to continental football against Steaua Bucharest lasted just 37 minutes, before he was sent off, which also makes him the youngest player to be dismissed in the tournament.
Babayaro joined Chelsea when he was 18 and went on to make more than 130 appearances for the Blues in seven years at Stamford Bridge before moves to Newcastle United and LA Galaxy.
Oldest player: Marco Ballotta
Lazio were the 11th club Ballotta represented and the goalkeeper made his record-breaking appearance for the Serie A side against Real Madrid in December 2007, aged 43 years and 253 days.
Impressively he actually played every one of their Champions League group games that season.
That season also saw Ballotta earn the honour of being the oldest player to play in Serie A game – at the age of 44 years and 38 days.
He retired in summer 2008, before briefly reappearing, bizarrely, as a striker for lower league Calcara Samoggia the following season.
Youngest player to score: Peter Ofori-Quaye
The Ghanaian was just 17 years and 195 days old when he found the back of the net for Olympiacos against Rosenborg in October 1997.
And that wasn’t even the biggest surprise – he was playing top-flight football with Kalamata in Greece aged just 15, which attracted him to Olympiacos aged 17, for a then club record fee of £3million.
He spent six years with Olympiacos before returning to Ghana with Liberty Professionals.
Oldest player to score: Francesco Totti
At 38 years and 59 days, the Roma legend beat his own record when he scored a free-kick against CSKA Moscow in November 2014.
He’d previously become the oldest player to score in the Champions League with his goal against Manchester City the previous September.
He also became the oldest player to score directly from a free-kick – beating Manchester United’s Ryan Giggs by nearly three years.
Only player to win the Champions League with three different clubs: Clarence Seedorf
The Dutch midfielder first lifted the trophy with Ajax in 1995, before repeating the feat with Real Madrid in 1998.
He then was part of two more victorious AC Milan sides, both in 2003 and 2007. The only club he played for in the competition that he didn’t win it with was Inter Milan.
Most sendings-off: Edgar Davids and Zlatan Ibrahimovic
The Dutchman and the Swede share the record for most sendings off, with four each.
Ibrahimovic has been shown two straight reds while Davids’ four dismissals were all for two yellows at Juventus.
The now Manchester United forward was sent off twice for Paris Saint-Germain, once for Juventus and once for Inter.
Most yellow cards: Paul Scholes
The former Manchester United midfielder had a reputation for being a poor tackler, so it’s perhaps no surprise he received 32 yellow cards in the Champions League.
The most notable was in the semi-final against Juventus in 1999, which meant he missed the famous win over Bayern Munich in the final which clinched the Red Devils’ treble.
