In earlier day, I saw the photo with Pogba. Zlatan was 2-3 cm taller than Pogba who is height 191 CM. So, Zlatan is 193-194 CM. I think 1.96 is too high out of bed for him. Max 195 CM
Andrea said on 15/Aug/16
Rob, do you really think he'd be just 193 after a football match? I know that it is an extreme situation but Ibra is one of the few 6'4.5 guys on here who never look under it! If anything, you can say he looks taller than this with many footballers! I know it is just a cm but still i can't see him as low as 193! I mean, have you seen him with Djokovic, Beckham, Ronaldo? You could say he looks nearer 6'5 with them, let alone 6'4 flat! I've already said it but he gives me a taller impression than a Ryan Mcpartlin, easily! I'd be shocked if he was just 193! So Beckham might be just 179 after a football match, just to name one?
Editor Rob: most of the players after a match would shrink roughly to their absolute lows, and Ibra I think could on such an occasion be nearer 193 than 4, but it's not a usual low.
Canson said on 15/Aug/16
@Rob: for Pique, do you think also it could be hair in conjunction with what you said below?Ibra in pictures looks clearly taller like the full 2cm. That's why I said mystery for Pique. He looks the listed 192 maybe 192 range. Possible for 6'3 3/4 I guess
Editor Rob: I doubt his hair had much effect as he pushed the stadiometer up nearly a full cm with the breathing in technique.

Either the stadiometer is rigged to give more height to players (unlikely, but never assume impossible), or he really is a solid 194.5 type guy at 9-10am and drops to 193 range at his low.
Johnson said on 14/Aug/16
@Rob do you have the clip for Ibra measuring 194.5?
Editor Rob: the video isn't available anymore, well the one that was linked 2 years ago.
Canson said on 13/Aug/16
@Johnson: I can't come to a conclusion for Pique honestly. Most here guess him at 193 or 192. I was wrong and I'll admit when I had 191 but To me (in my opinion) side by side with Ibra and Kobe he looks 192, but to me looks taller because of his hair. I compared the scalp with Ibrahimovic and he edged him. On the other hand, For Ibra Its easier to tell with thinner hair. He actually looks a weak 6'5 or at worst a strong 6'4. Id say he's absolutely no lower than Rob has him here for his average height and a flat 194 would be the absolute low on the day (I wouldn't even go as low as some others that had him around 6'4 or 193cm). Not sure when he measured or if he measured higher than the 194.5 we saw at some point along the way But at worst, I see an afternoon height somewhere between 194 and 195. and if he got measured in the AM I wouldn't doubt Ibra would hit or even slightly clear the 195 mark even an hour out of bed. I still touch 195 after my first hour Out of bed and that's waking to 195.9-196 these days and am usually after about 4 hours around 194.3-194.4 (6'4.5) and don't go below 194 flat unless I go to the gym or am on my feet in the evening.
Editor Rob: there's not much mystery to Pique.

Either the digital (expensive model) stadiometer is wrong or sometime in the morning Pique standing his tallest can stretch up to 194.7 from a normal standing tall 193.7ish.

I would be surprised if the stadiometer was off much.
Canson said on 13/Aug/16
@Johnson: I can't find his most recent measurement but saw someone below or could've been on Pique's page say it was in the 194 range in Barcelona. But that the audio was bad and they didn't get the end of it. They ended saying it could've even been 194.9. My personal opinion is he'd be prob around 194.3 (like Rob has him) at his lowest. But that'd mean he'd be a good 196.2 out of bed which I can also see. I believe too that he'd measure 195 easy in the morning on a stadio meter
Luca said on 12/Aug/16
Rob,have you seen the picture of ibra and pogba?What about pogba's height?
Johnson said on 12/Aug/16
@Canson look the pic of Piqué and Ferdinand in line, some posts below. He was 18.
Canson said on 11/Aug/16
@Johnson: pretty sure it was recent for Ibra. I see 196 out of bed for him and the 194 range as his low. Pique tho at 192 seems to fit more. Maybe like 192.5 Kobe has him by an inch at 195cm and Ibra by about 2cm
Borats Chicken said on 11/Aug/16
Rob, looking at zlatan's head length from top to chin would it be 9.25 to 9.5 inches?
Editor Rob: his eye-head isn't that big, he has a longer eye-chin range, so it may well still be nearer 9.5
Johnson said on 9/Aug/16
@Canson not sure how old was Ibra when he was measured 194.5? But look at these pics. I would bet for Piqué 193.5 and Ibra 195. Really close

Canson said on 8/Aug/16
@Plus @Johnson: on avg he seems about 2cm (like Johnson mentioned) taller than Pique. I posted one pic below but others suggest the same (some look a full inch as well). Had I not seen a measurement for Ibra I would've prob given him 195 myself but after seeing it 194.3 like Rob has is a compromise (Rob has him at 194 and 194.5 as two seperate measurements). I can see him dipping no lower than 194 (and measure 196 out of bed). But Pique's is suspicious because he's generally been 192 when measured. His hair is thicker than Ibra's so wonder if that played a role. I can see Pique measuring a flat 192 at his lowest now that I've observed.

Canson said on 8/Aug/16
@Rob: you see Ibra dropping that low?
Editor Rob: after a bad day he might be not much over 6ft 4, but I think generally he might hold near 6ft 4.5 for a good chunk of it.
Canson said on 8/Aug/16
@175cm: I believe you but it's a bit odd to me. Ibra always looks taller than Pique and only measured 194.5 on the stadio
Johnson said on 7/Aug/16
In the video of Ibrahimovic's medical control at Barcelona is heard very badly 194 (and not sure about the decimals afterwards), but there is a mix of images and we don't even know if it is his armspan or if its decimals would be 194.9. Very poor audio

Rob, how tall is Austrian Player Marko Arnautovic?
He is listed as 192 cm but i think he is 189-190cm .
CNROM89 said on 24/Jul/16
Rob, what dou you think about his lowest? Is it possible 193-193,5 for him at night?
Editor Rob: yes after a football match I'd expect him about 193cm.
Tunman said on 24/Jul/16
6'4 at age 12?and some as early as 11?ha,no offense but if someone is that tall around this age and really stops growing it implies their puberty started at the age of 8 at the latest possibly even 7.Some guys like Shaquille O'Neal were around that height between 11 and 12 (actually 6'6) and we all know at what marks they ended,Wilt Chamberlain was 6' at 10 and ended 7'1,that's muuuuuuuuuuuch more reasonable imo.Btw at the age of 11 we probably were too small to judge how tall 6'4 looked like.I was surprised when I met few years ago my teacher of 2nd year in primary school,she looked around 5'6-7 funny how I always assumed she was around 190cm...she really looked massive in my eyes and in the eyes of any child for sure.

Johnson said on 24/Jul/16
@Canson Piqué at 20 years old was clearly taller than 191 cm Rio Ferdinand see the pic. As for Piqué and Ibra, we don't have very clear pics. I think solid 193 for Piqué. And 195 for Ibra anyway.

Canson said on 23/Jul/16
@175: after looking at Pique he may very well be 192. He looks in between 6'3-4 after seeing pics of him.still not sold that 194.75 morning is legit for him. I can see maybe 194 flat and then 192, but He's not as tall as Ibra who is 195 (morning).
Canson said on 23/Jul/16
@175: you notice how much hair Pique has on his head too right? Not saying adds a lot but this doesn't add up also him losing near 3cm in a day is a lot and being measured 192 before and he's 29 and done growing. I can see 2 cm for normal person. If he did measure the 194.75 barefoot I'd be astonished. Now if he truly is 192 at his lowest than yea I can see a flat 194 or near 194 out of bed and maybe a boost for his hair very slight like 1/2cm or so
Canson said on 23/Jul/16
@175cm: thanks I'll look for that. It's strange and mighty strange that they'd list him as 192 when he's almost 195. But clearly Ibra is taller than Pique. I can agree with Rob's listing for Ibra definitely
Borats Chicken said on 20/Jul/16
Rob, sites listed his wife as 165cm, do you really think she's that tall? whats your thought.
Editor Rob: probably between 5ft 4-5 range
Canson said on 17/Jul/16
Now this guy is a legit 194. He is def taller than Pique. I don't see any record of Pique measuring 194.7 on any stadio meter. It wouldn't surprise me if pique is a 193 out of bed and 191 at night if he measured the 192 there

Rob, is 6ft4¾ at all arguable?
Editor Rob: I wouldn't go that high unless it is more 9am measurement, then he is that range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jun/16
TBH, it's probably a major disadvantage to be that big at 11.
Nic said on 29/Jun/16
I've heard he was pretty small as a kid, shorter than average at 12-13.
Arch Stanton said on 23/Jun/16
The tallest guy in my school was 6 ft 4 at 11 when we started in comprehensive school!!! He only grew one inch I think. Big built too, looked like a real thug! The second tallest then was about 5 ft 9 or 10 I think (and voice broken and already gone through pubery (he never grew after it I don't think) so it's very rare to be that big by 11!

He also claims to be 196...

Rob, There's an site page where it claims zlatan grew to 6'4 at 12, what do you think of that?
Editor Rob: some guys do gain a lot early and by 13-14 are basically done, so it wouldn't be impossible he was an early spurter, but I've not seen any photos of him when he was 12-13 to get an idea.

@175 I think that could have been the measurement taken at Malmo while he was still a youngster.

@175 Yes it's true. Mathieu was measured 190 and Bartra 183 cm with the new stadiometer, but we don't know their measure with the old one. The only player which we have a video of being being measured with the new machine and the old machine is Rakitic

Zlatan is around 6 ft 2...still very tall but closer to me

Rob, espnfc listed him as 192cm, would you consider changing zlatans height to that?
Editor Rob: no, because we have the video evidence he was measured at the height range listed.
Tunman said on 11/May/16
Actually Piqué can't be 194,7 IMO,if it's true then Kobe Bryant must be 198.He's listed at 192 nearly everywhere and I thought he looked a solid 192 indeed possibly like 6'3.75".Well maybe the 194,7 mark was right out of bed.
As for Zlatan the 194,5 measurement seems reliable,certainly not an out of bed one.Possibly dipping few mms more thus closer to 6'4.5 a solid 194 which seems the ideal listing,and 6'4.25 might be after a game.

Well about Piqué it was early in the morning and stretching a bit more the posture that day. It depends on the day and hour but Piqué suring most part of the day could be 193. There is a video of Mathieu measuring at 190.1 and is noticeable a few cms shorter than Piqué
5ft 9.25 said on 9/Mar/16
Actually he wasn't measured with a stadiometer. Don't believe he's that tall.
Peak 'out of bed' 6ft 5
Bare minimum 6ft 3.75
plus said on 26/Jan/16
@5ft 9.25 yes it could be with sneakers on, in that case Piqué would be no more that 192 barefoot. There is a clip where he stands walking along Kobe Bryant and Kobe (no more thatn196 cm) edges Piqué in 3 or 4 cm maximum
5ft 9.25 said on 25/Jan/16
He must had shoes on. Otherwise why should they list him with 193?
Maybe the first time he asked to get measured in sneakers and second without them..

@There exist no proof of Pique being a measured 194.7cms.
It must be his reach.. we're just hearing a person throwin it in!
Editor Rob: there is a video and the digital stadiometer when he breathes in does look like it might be that figure. It's not absolutely clear, but I wouldn't rule it out!
plus said on 20/Jan/16
I finally eard the video of the first message on this board, there's amoment when he is measured and then the image changes and they're measuring his bíceps... and there's a voice in that moment that says: "194". But it's like it's not live, it also could be his armspan. But I don't know the hour of that medical test, it could be afternoon too...But he could be 194 cm and Piqué 193. The rare thing is Piqué is measured 194,7 in the morning in this season medical tests

This pic is very good and can clear things up, I think Abbiati is listed as 191 cm

plus said on 13/Jan/16
where is the video of the 194 medical test? is it true just plain 194? was it a voice who said it?
Tunman said on 11/Jan/16
Possibly something like 193,5 after a long day of training?it's true that he easily pushes 6'5 but 6'4.5" is just perfect IMO. I just never exclude 1cm less for guys like Nadal,Beckham or others.Djokovic is rather 6'1.5 and probably dips to 6'1.25" after a tennis match.Quite frustrating that even sportsmen get fake listings,I just wonder why data about their height is provided if it's not 100%sure.
Andrea said on 2/Jan/16
Ok, but let's say you don't know he was measured in 194 range... Would you say 193 is possibile? If that's the case, then you can argue that people like Cristiano or Beckham can look at least an half inch shorter than their listing!!! I do remember you even said 6'5 range was possible before adding him... And he certainly can pull off that tall on the pitch! When i told you he claimed to be 197 in an interview you said it wasn't impossible!!! Now, 197 is certainly too high but it's perfectly reasonable to say he was claiming his height in a shoe! As i said he gives me a taller impression than a guy like Ryan Mcpartlin, who probably isn't much over 6'4...
Editor Rob: at times he could pull off looking 6ft 5 yes, but the more you look at someone the more they can look a certain range.
Andrea said on 1/Jan/16
So do you think you could make an argument for 193? To me, anywhere below 194 seems impossible! If he was just 193, a guy like Djokovic wouldn't be a mm over 6'1, just to make an example...
Without any measurement, i would have guessed him near 195, he does tower almost everyone on the pitch!
The 192 listings are clearly BS! If he really was this low, you could argue that Beckham appears nearer 5'9 range at times!!!
Editor Rob: if he was only an hour of out of bed then a 193 argument is believable. It doesn't look like nba when they've got up 6-7 and measured within an hour in many cases.
Andrea said on 31/Dec/15
Rob, it's funny how people still try to say he's 192, even after being measured TWICE in the 194 range! You should ban any guy who says that :)
Editor Rob: the argument I think is whether the measurement was believable, and if anybody watches the clip, it looks pretty legit...
beyond that, maybe it is how long out of bed was the measurement. At least we can rule out an 'out of bed reading'.
Charlie said on 30/Dec/15
Must been a direct out of bed measureing bc on a pic he was measured 192 cm on the dot.
Correg said on 30/Dec/15
1.96 is too high just out of bed. Maybe, he is 1.95 good for him in the morning. So, he is 193-1.95
appe 6ft0.5 said on 15/Dec/15
Considering he probably drops an inch during the day because of his height, I would go for 196cm just out of bed and 193,5cm in the evening.

Tunman said on 8/Aug/15
The guy really looks near 6'5 with Nadal,Djokovic and almost every person.
The 194,5 measurement is credible although I'm still thinking he could be 194 at the end of the day assuming he loses probably a full inch.
He's comfortably over 6'4 the 192 measurement was a wrong one.Remember Glenn Loovens was listed at 173 when he was near 6'2 with Rob.

It's funny how people keep trying to downgrade him to 192 when he was measured between 194 and 195... 192 would be crazy, even if he was never "measured" :)
This guy genuinely looks 194-195, which, guess what, is what he was measured at! I remember 4-5 years ago, in an italian interview, the girl who interviewed said something "you're very tall, you're 192, right"? (probably after reading that height on the net) and he corrected her by saying "i'm 197 actually". So he probably was claiming his height in shoes which would be for sure something around 197!

Tunman said on 15/Feb/15
possibly his absolute low could be around 6'4.25 but it's fine to say 6'4.5
Actually the body behaves funnily sometimes
I once ran 7 kms and I measured 176,1 and 176,15 when my normal low is around 176,4 or 176,5
On another occasion right after spending a long hour alternating walks and sprints/runs I managed to measure the very same 176,4-5 at night
Early this year after spending several hours standing and serving customers but without sitting even a second I was as short as 176,0 the absolute lowest I measured so far
Anyways I think it's more about how sore your back gets after effort.
In the latter occasion I indeed got very sore back and legs and even before measuring I felt I was under my normal low.In fact I was so tired I didn't even have the force to eat.
I wonder how much one would lose if he spends a whole day lifting a heavy trunk until falling like in Spartacus?
Andrea said on 15/Feb/15
Well, i doubt a football player, after a long match, thinks: let's see how tall i am! Unless he wants to find his absolute low "on purpose"! Your "real" height is your normal low, IMO! So, Ibra is a legit 194-195 guy, even if he dipped a little below 194 after a long match!
[Editor Rob: yes that's why he's on 6ft 4.5, it's just an interesting issue with tennis/football/nfl and how these sports could push you to a low that some of us wouldn't ever reach.]
Andrea said on 14/Feb/15
So, if you played a football match for about 2 hours, you'd dip below the 5'8 mark? 0.75 cms is a lot!
[Editor Rob: I doubt I'd manage more than 30 minutes of footie these days :) But if I could play 90 minutes of a nfl game I might dip a few mm shy of 5ft 8!]
Editor Rob said on 14/Feb/15
I found the paper talking about the height loss. It was actually 7.62mm

I'd call it the Plumber Effect or G SHOCK. In the plumbers case the effects of a full day installing a bathroom and in G's case, the effects of carrying an overloaded bag of LP's, 8x10's, Sharpies and a 12-pack of Twinkies around the streets of Manhattan.
Andrea said on 14/Feb/15
Rob, if he's 194.5 daytime, he's a legit strong 194 guy! I doubt he'd lose another cm, unless he woke up very late that day! The absolute lowest is generally a couple mm under your normal low, so yeah could be 194 flat after a long match but i'm not sure he'd be as low as 193.5!!! And it's hard to believe a Ryan Mcpartlin would be as tall as him, btw...
[Editor Rob: it depends the time he is measured. After a match you can be quite dehydrated, similar with tennis or nfl players. In fact there was a study done on 18 year old HS footballers which I have mentioned a couple of times in the past. They were measured before the match and then after the match. The average height of the players was about 5ft 9. The average loss after the match if I recall was around 0.75cm.

The match took place in the evening so they were likely near low to begin with and the effects of the pressure on spine caused an absolute low to be reached, also dehydration effects may have added to this critical low point.]

ibra is 195cm in the video I suspected it was always huge field it is also taller than Joe Hart 194cm goalkeeper england Click Here
[Editor Rob: he's 194.5cm and it's a daytime measurement. After a football match he is probably 193.5 range.]
Andrea said on 13/Feb/15
And this should stop the discussion on here, especially those who try to say he's only 192!!!
Andrea said on 13/Feb/15
Interesting video, Moe! It seems he gets measured at a solid 194, right Rob? I mean, the long line is every 5 cms? So it is a bit more than 4 cms over 190 there which is no surprise at all! He always looks no less than 194 to me and can easily pull off looking 6'5...
[Editor Rob: it looks exactly 194.5cm, I will mention this at the top.]

Rob, why does ESPN have Ibra listed at 6'3". They also have Pique listed at 6'3". Other sources have them listed at 6'4" and 6'5" respectively. I take ESPN to be the most legit source. Is ESPN downgrading them or is that their true height without shoes?

Apart from the height challenger, i've never seen you under someone's chin. Just think about guys like Rory McCann, Nonso Anozie, Dan Yeager who are all supposed to be taller than the big C! You are noticeably above their chins! I do know it depends on a lot of things, camera angles and distance, head size, etc. But even with a guy like Cudmore, you don't appear one inch under his chin.
Andrea said on 14/Apr/14
Does he really looks 171 next to Ibra in this photo? o.O
You are two cms taller than him and reach the mouth of guys like Ryan Mcpartlin (who are supposed to be similar height to Ibra) and this guy doesnt even reach Ibra's chin...
[Editor Rob: and I also can look an inch under a 6ft 5 guy's chin remember, sometimes photos can add or remove height. I think he looks taller than a guy like messi]
Andrea said on 13/Apr/14
Rob, how tall is Dani Alves? I saw some 5'8 listings on the net but he looks way shorter than this next to Ibra... Just think about you and Ryan Mcpartlin, noway there's such a huge difference! And what about that Seydou Keita guy?
Btw, 192 is crazy, i'm not buying anything under 194 for him. Better chance he's 195 than 192! Nick, stop with this crazy downgrading work because he was measured at 194, so it's useless ;) Just look at him with C. Ronaldo, another guy who's supposed to have been measured (at 185), he can look 10 cms taller than him!!!
[Editor Rob: alves could be 171 range, don't know about Keita]
176,2Tunman said on 5/Apr/14
Good point Nick,but I think it's rather 5 or maybe 6cm max difference.In one of the recent videos Rob posted on Youtube,he's comparing elevator shoes with normal shoes standing next to 6'Jenny in heels,you can see what 3" or 4" represent in reality in this vid when 2 persons stand at the same distance from a camera.
194 is still my opinion for Zlatan,192 is not impossible but that's the most pessimistic estimate for him really.
Nick said on 2/Apr/14
you see that image is no good for estimating 1.87.6, 176,27 as the perspective is fooling the eye, the shot is taken from way too high up, check this one instead were the camera is straight in front of the players and the angle is not inclined, Click Here and Click Here
you can see there're clearly and obviously more like 7-8cm between Ibrahimovic and Isaksson and btw at Barca tests he was measured 192cm not 194cm and he was already old enough

Nick, honestly no way he's only 192.Sure, im many pics he will look no more than that, but in others he may easily give the impression of a 195-6 can't exclusively base yourself on some pics where he looks 192.With Nadal for instance, he definitely looks 6'5.Barecelone measured him at 194, so this listing seems honest...well, maybe he measured 192 very early in his career like 17 or 18 years old.

He is def not 196-197 cm. Most pics with him and Isaksson indicates 192-194 cm. I must admit though that his posture is pretty sloppy at times so 195 isnt out of the question, but thats his max.

Rob I believe that picture I posted of Ibrahimovic next to Isaksson shows 6cm bare minimum at very least, I'd say there's more like 7/8cm difference, the top of Ibrahimovic head is only marginally over Isaksson eye level, look at the top of their heads for c.. sake :)

1.94 looks right. 1.96 is too high, but I could see 1.95 with shoes.

Picture 2 - Ibrahimovic is standing straight and leaning on one leg, and Abbiati is slouching, however, there's only a one to two inch difference.

1.85 m, 83 kg said on 20/Mar/13
To clear up the PSG team line-up photo: Beckham is 5'11", Ibrahimovic is 6'4". The difference looks greater as Beckham has a relaxed posture, whereas, Ibrahimovic is standing as straight possible, not only this, but he is leaning onto one leg, making him appear even taller.

You're trying to downgrade him in everyway but he's clearly all the listing. Arch, yeah. Pique always looked a big 6'3.5 guy to me, maybe a little more but if you saw some matches he clearly looks shorter than Ibra. So, 6'3.5-6'4 for Pique and 6'4.5 for Ibra fit them...

Click Here here is ibrahimovic next to Nadal and the guy on the left Al Khelaifi might be 173cm maybe less as is listed at 175cm and looks same height as the psg's manager Leonardo Araújo, therefore Nadal might be 178cm top, also note that Ibrahimovic is closer to the camera and looks as always 191/192cm
Nick said on 10/Jan/13
again Ibrahimovic looking about same height as Milan's goalkeeper Abbiati listed at 191cm Click Here

"No Zlatan is 192, I saw it in the newspaper when he stood and got measured, the picture showed him at the 192 cm line..."
Lo sgozzatore said on 6/Jan/13
Nadal never looked a full 6'1, he looks 6'0.5 at most (i wanna be generous) with Ibra, i think he might be 6' range
Balrog said on 5/Jan/13
Actually Ibrahimovic destroyed 6'1'' listings of Nadal, he looked more than just 4in taller than him. Nadal is 6'0'' not over it.
Lo sgozzatore said on 29/Dec/12
Agree with Arch, he always did look a big 6'5 to me but if he was measured at 6'4.5 than it is! Anything under that mark is crazy for Ibra... This shows that a real 6'4.5 is supertall... Looks every bit of 6'4.5, i think he would same tall of a Tim Robbins or Usain Bolt. 192 is crazy for him
Arch Stanton said on 28/Dec/12
If you see him on the pitch he actually looks as big as 6'5", he towers over most of the other players like Usain Bolt does on the track.
Arch Stanton said on 28/Dec/12
Looks 6 ft 5 next to 6'0.5" Rafael Nadal. 192cm LOL!!! 194cm is the lowest he could be I think.
Jack said on 19/Dec/12
192 cm. Looks shorter than 193 cm Patrick Vieira and Marco Materazzi.
SAK said on 16/Dec/12
rkc_cat & FootballFan8 thanks for replies.

My guess would be;
Dani Alves - 5f7
Keita - 6f
Ibrahimovic - 6f4
Busquets - 6f2
Pique - 6f3.5
Valdes - 5f11.5
Arch Stanton said on 28/Nov/12
Rob, I've been described as "pretty tall" myself, a legit 6 ft 4 and half is more than pretty tall, its very tall! Very tall starts at 6'3.5", extremely tall at 6'6!
Lo sgozzatore said on 23/Nov/12
Rob, you think that a Ryan Mcpartlin would be as tall as him? I think Zlatan would be a bit taller but then again i didnt see many things of Mcpartlin... Ibra looks supertall on the pitch, does Mcpartlin look the same in the movies?
[Editor Rob: I think they'd be very close, ryan is a pretty tall guy in person.]
Arch Stanton (Shaun) said on 22/Nov/12
@Maio, John Terry gives a much taller impression though doesn't he because of his thin wiry build.
Lo sgozzatore said on 20/Nov/12
1.85m, to be fair i saw some pics of Zlatan with Luca Toni and Ibrahimovic looked taller and that makes sense since that Luca Toni claimed to have been measured 1.93...
1.85 m, 83 kg said on 19/Nov/12
I believe he's a solid 6'4", has always looked this and does so in this picture. If we use 6'3 1/2" Pique as a marker, he looks the same height. Accounting for his posture, he looks to be losing half an inch. 6'4" seems correct and is also consistent with 6'2 1/2" Busquets. Given, he is a huge striker, however, people throwing about the 6'5" estimate don't realise how massive that actually is. I refer you to players like Brede Hangeland, Petr Chech and Luca Toni, men that tower on a football field.
Fern194cm-192cm said on 18/Nov/12
Rob, do you think it is possible that Pique is actually 193cm, the full 6 foot 4? I also wonder how ibra would measure up to someone like kobe bryant or Usain Bolt.
[Editor Rob: pique is a bit shorter than zlatan, 192 is probably pique's range, 193, maybe, but I think 192 fits him.]
Lo sgozzatore said on 18/Nov/12
ahahah, but it seems a precise height. Anyway i'm pretty sure he's near that in shoes or even out of bed...
Lo sgozzatore said on 18/Nov/12
Rob, you think the 197 he claimed was a shoes height, morning height, or random height?
[Editor Rob: I'd call it a BS height!
WalkingTall 6ft 3.25in said on 18/Nov/12
He's a bit slouched in the photo above(look at the chest and stomach) which leaves an impression that he's the same height as 192cm Pique.I think that 194 cm isn't a bad guess,but he could be 195cm as listed in recent years.Either way it's safe to say he's a weak 6'5'' and hell of a football player!
rkc_cat said on 18/Nov/12
@SAK: As far as I know, Alves is in the 5'7.5"-5'8" range (closer to the former if you ask me), Keita and Valdés are both about 6', Busquets is 6'2.5" and Piqué is 6'3.5".

@Cranberries: 6'4" isn't out of question, but I think he's closer to 6'4.5". About his shoe size I had no idea, but well, I also have a friend who is 6'5" and wears a size 11 like me, and I'm 6'0.5", and he doesn't have exactly short arms.
Fern194cm-192cm said on 18/Nov/12
Hey Rob,why didn't you put him at 195 cm which is what barca, milan and psg list(ed) him at? Although I do think 194 cm is a perfect guess for him. A weak 6,5 fits him well.
[Editor Rob: I believe the 194 for him.]
SAK said on 17/Nov/12
How tall are:? (if Zlatan is 194cm)

Dani Alves
Seydou Keita
Sergio Buschets
Gerard Pique
Victor Valdez
rkc_cat said on 17/Nov/12
194 seems pretty much right. In this pic he doesn't look much taller than 192 Piqué, but in other pics he definitely is.
And oh damn, what a great player he is! Definitely one of the best in my opinion. If only he didn't have that character... I wish he could have stayed in Barcelona.

@J.J.: You're talking about Sergio Busquets? He's a couple of inches shorter than Zlatan. Busquets is 6'2.5", not 6'3.5".
Jack said on 17/Nov/12
He doesn't look taller than 192 cm Pique in this pic.
J.J. said on 16/Nov/12
@Rob what about Sergio, they say he is exactly 6'3.5" but looks taller than Zlatan.
Alice said on 16/Nov/12
wow he is very tall!!
Lars said on 16/Nov/12
Finally a Zlatan page! I think 194 is right.
Arch Stanton said on 16/Nov/12
Very few players would have the agility to score that overhead kick from that angle. Amazing. Extract from the mail today:

"But just as Ibrahimovic is no ordinary physical specimen and no ordinary footballer, he's no ordinary character, either.

Football has always had its fair share of rough diamonds, but Ibrahimovic is a rare gem indeed.

He makes Mario Balotelli, the womanising, car-crashing, bad-boy of Manchester City look like an innocent choirboy by comparison."

Not sure how that is but I gather he has a shady past.
Arch Stanton said on 15/Nov/12
Pique is a legit 192cm so 194cm looks right.
Arch Stanton said on 15/Nov/12
Click Here

Actually looks the same height as my 6'7" mate here, legs look similar, but he's on higher ground and nearer the camera.
Arch Stanton said on 15/Nov/12
Finally... 194-195cm is fine.
Lo sgozzatore said on 15/Nov/12
Rob, you finally add the big Zlatan! You think thats reliable, that measurement?
[Editor Rob: well on a swedish site that witchdoctor pointed out it mentioned he was 194 and the still image was from This video.]
