@nfsw: lol you sound like the typical troll fanboy and embocile on this site all “because Ibra says he’s 196 he is”. I can care less what he says about his height. That’s coming from someone retarded as are you. The only thing you provided is that you probably want ibra to be taller because you fantasize about him. Look at the top of the page where rob says what he was measured. He is the site master here and provided his evidence. That’s the proof there. Not the bull**** that you are saying he said rhetorically. If he measured 194 and 194.5 that is what he is. Most athletes claim their height in shoes that is a well known fact. That is what Ibra is claiming. I highly doubt a guy in his mid or late 20s when measured grew 2cm or more.
@Junior: yea my guess is Ibra is an afternoon 194 like I am maybe even a slight hair taller than me is possible for him. I go under 194 he may not. As for Pique he doesn’t look much above 192. I think the 194 was with a bit of thick hair and a bust a gut in the morning. My guess is close to yours tho a weak 6’4 is how he ordinarily looks imho. You said it very well about 2cm shorter than Ibra. My guess is Ibra could be a 194-194.5 while Pique 192-192.5. I’d say maybe 6’4 3/8-6’4.5 for Ibra and 6’3.5-.75 for Pique. He doesn’t have the proportions of a legit 6’4” imho nor does he look it
Junior said on 16/Oct/17
I believe Zlatan Ibrahimovic measure close to 196cm in the morning and just claim and say 196cm in that interview you have posted and he settled down at around 194.5cm lowest so he is a strong 6'4.5 (194.3 cm)
I just read up your post i agree Gerard Pique look a full 2cm next to Ibrahimovic, my estimate is Pique had one time measure in the morning nearly 194cm and probably rest down 192.5cm mid day or lowest.

@canson Do you have the link proving? Because if you do not shut up your big mouth and get out of here! You're the one who does not understand what I'm saying, I want proof. Do you understand now? Little child the photo above can not be used as comparison ibrahimovic is not straight and as I said Ibrahimovic weighs 95 kg and piquet 84 kg a difference of 11 kg more by applying physical force on the football field that is soft giving disadvantage to the height of ibrahimovic which is 195 cm to 195.5 cm. I have proof and you have no proof what you are talking. Remember proof you need to prove! And stop lying! Because I was the only one here that presented the best comparisons, links and evidences and you did not present anything, much less compared nothing.

@nfsw: what the hell are you even saying lol? You make absolutely no sense lol. Quit miming. He was "actually measured at 194 and 194.5". Do you not see that above? Are you able to comprehend what rob listed above? Oh and there is a video a year or two of a fully grown man measuring that in the 194 range. He can claim whatever he wants but his measurements will not change. That's no different than the Rock claiming he is 6'5" and being severely edged out constantly by 6'4" guys. I use facts and comparisons and he isn't but 2cm taller than Pique looking at them. Most athletes claim shoes btw so him claiming 196 that could be a shoe height for him

@Canson:You are the kind of person who contradicts yourself and continues without proving anything and with that ridiculous camparation that "I am this then he is the same". LoL you have no sense!
As Ibrahimovic says: I'm not like you, because I'm not you, I'm Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
@canson: wake up to life, Zlatan is not you put it in your mind wake up wake up!
Canson said on 26/Sep/17
@Edimar: agreed he's my height. 195.7-195.8 out of bed 193.7-194 at night. Hence him measuring 194/194.5
Canson said on 24/Sep/17
Facts are above he measured 194 and 194.5
Canson said on 24/Sep/17
@nsfw: I do have notion of size because I myself am also 194cm. If the guy measures that height (194 and 194.5) that is what he is. You're the one who is foolish. Sitting here saying someone is his height because the other is this. Rob has his numbers and measurements listed above. Do you not see that?
Edimar1.84 said on 24/Sep/17
When he says 1.96 probaly is with shoes on, he is under 6ft5 sure... I guess 194.5
nfsw said on 22/Sep/17
@Canson:This "thinking smart expression" does not fit you because you have not proved anything yet you just said what you think and what you think does not matter, what matters are the facts and the facts you do not have, and still wanted to compare zlatan with a guy who increases its own height by 9cm what a shame.
Try Spend a little time looking at the evidence I presented where it is taken into account that Piqué is more or less 192.5cm and Ibrahimovic 195.5cm is just look and compare is only 3cm taller, for me this is quite reasonable to understand if you do not have notion of size I'm sorry, you must give up!
Canson said on 20/Sep/17
@nsfw: well thinking smart Ibra measures 194 and 194.5 it is irrelevant what he says he is. The rock says he is 6'5" and he's 6'2"

@Johnson: Here's the video link when he says his height, from 44 seconds to 1 minute Click Here
Johnson said on 18/Sep/17
@nfsw so he said he was 1.96? Do you have the link?
said on 16/Sep/17
@Cnrom89: let's think smart Ronaldo phenomenon in the world cup of 2006 weighed 96kg here a photo of him
did he seem to weigh it? no, but he weighed, he is not so muscular but he weighed and here the site where Fabio Capello says that when Ronaldo arrived at Real Madrid he weighed 96kg Click Here
Ronaldo does not seem to have a big structure he has a height of 183cm and 13kg overweight at that time, now tell me why ibrahimovic being a giant would weigh 91kg? Ibrahimovic himself said in an interview when he played at Internazionale Milano that he was 196cm tall and weighed 90kg and now that he looks heavier he continues with 90kg? here the site where he says he weighs 100kg Click Here
and here is a photo of him in pre season on psg probably weighing 100kg
said on 15/Sep/17
@Cnrom89:I do not know what happened with the link I posted but here again the picture of Ibrahimovic's abdomen Click Here
and this one when he played in Ac milan Click Here
Ibrahimovic has wide shoulder see Click Here
and one more of the abdomen Click Here
Cnrom89 said on 15/Sep/17
Probably right his legs are heavier, also his upper body and bones (shoulder) are thin for 95 kg guy.
said on 13/Sep/17
@Cnrom89: Most of Ibrahimovic's weight is concentrated on his legs, which is why he does not look so muscular as his thighs are always covered it's hard to see the weight of him, but look at that image of his leg Click Here
, does not mean he has a weak trunk look at this photo of his abdomen Click Here
here is a photo of Ronaldo phenomenon weighing over 100kg next to Ibrahimovic in the locker room of the psg Click Here
, for a high and wide athlete like Ibrahimovic it is not difficult to reach 95kg he also has a great bone density, and here his most recent shirtless photo Click Here
nfsw said on 11/Sep/17
@Johnson: What are you talking about? Piqué is taller than Busquets and that image is fair and Ibrahimovic continues higher than the whole team and remember lions do not compare themselves with humans!😂😂😂
Cnrom89 said on 11/Sep/17
I don't think İbra's weight is more than 90-91 kilos.
Johnson said on 10/Sep/17
@nfsw again check Busquets near Ibra. And remember Piqué is taller than Busquets
said on 9/Sep/17
@Johnson: here is another image Click Here
proving that piquet is not 194 cm tall he is around 192.5 cm and piquet always rests on the shoulder of the teammates to get taller, it has to be taken into consideration that the field of soccer is soft and ibrahimovic weighs 95 kg and piquet 84 kg a difference of 11 kg more by applying physical force on the football field giving disadvantage to the height of ibrahimovic which is 195 cm to 195.5 cm.
Johnson said on 7/Sep/17
@nfsw that shot fool us because we can think Busquets is taller than Pique

Canson said on 2/Sep/17
I can see him being no less than my height. Maybe he dips to 6'4.25 more regularly than I do (in between 1/4-3/8 normally) but I doubt this guy is anymore than maybe 6'4.5 at his lowest. He just looks what a good example of a strong 6'4/weak 6'5 should look esp with taller proportions.
Likely would measure similar to Charles Barkley or Michael Jordan I doubt any taller than them
Canson said on 2/Sep/17
@Christian: I would've pegged you as probably 30 or so (not to rush you aging lol). Because you are very mature when you post and very intelligent with your thoughts and wording as well as very witty

I'm 14 And I'm 5'8 I play for West London u15's I'm the starting striker and have averaged 2 goals for 16 games season, I'm playing in the London cup, I've met zlatan, he seems between 6-4-6-5 in person.

@Kyslett: nope we don't know each other. We're on opposite ends of the US. Just here on Celebheights. Christian is taller than I am by about an inch. Not sure who is older or weighs more. I myself am 220lbs at 6'4" and change and am in my mid 30s.
Kylett said on 20/Jul/17
@canson @christian the two big guys
I have a question do you know each other?
Who is older?
Who weights more?
Do u guys are friends? Extc
Canson said on 17/Jul/17
@Christian: always use a wall. I've used the yardstick and tape measure tho both. I believe a stadio once by one doctor and it was like 194.4 maybe a year and a half or two years back so I believe now it added the extra 1/8" since that was a late morning measurement from what I remember (maybe 11AM or so) after waking up at around 5am
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 17/Jul/17
Do you measure 6'4 3/8" using a stadiometer or a measuring tape and a wall? Some stadiometers are known to add a few mm compared to the measuring tape method. For example Rob measures 5'8 1/8" with the tape but gets 5'8 1/4" with his stadiometer. The one I own isn't off though, I measure exactly the same with both.
Canson said on 23/Jun/17
194cm 6'41/4 min 6'4 1/2" max
Original said on 18/Jun/17
Canson said on 17/Jun/17
@Christian: that makes sense. You're just about 1/2" below what you are out of bed since you're near 6'6 1/8. I'm typically down 1/2" myself after a full 2 hours if I've been up. One thing I've noticed too is the way you sit in a car also has an effect. Us taller guys like to sit reclined that will keep height instead of losing it.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 16/Jun/17
I was measured around 9:30AM, so around 2.5 hours out of bed since my out of bed time is typically 7:00AM.
Canson said on 16/Jun/17
@Christian: Thanks! I'm assuming you were probably measured 1-2 hours on your feet? I've also noticed being in the doctor's office that you may lay reclined for a few minutes before they come in which affects height as well (temporarily brings it up a bit). My doctor has me on paper I believe at 6'4 but because he measured me In the afternoon at 6'4 3/8

Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 15/Jun/17
Very logical post Canson. I'm listed as 6'6" on my medical record, because my doctor's appointment took place earlier in the day and as a result, I was measured 6'5 5/8" on the stadiometer, which was rounded to 6'6".
Canson said on 15/Jun/17
@Young Blood: we are referring to your height waking in the morning and before bed or afternoon. Generally and this is per rob and I have verified myself you lose around 3/4" per day Morning to evening and this could vary plus minus 1/4" or so based on the torso size but avg is 3/4". Morning height is overblown a bit because it reflects out of bed to some but nobody is typically at least the celebs here measured upon waking. But say someone measures within the first hour on their feet they could be within the 1/4"-3/8 of their waking height still and say that they are 6'4" out of bed and 6'3.75 they will be rounded to 6'4 still after that first hour on their feet but by evening be 6'3.25 probably. So for me for example I wake up at roughly 195.8cm (I tested it four times in the past 6 months) which is a hair under 6'5 1/8 but if I were to measure in the afternoon say 8 hours on my feet I'm down to 193.9 or 194 (6'4.33-.38) and in the evening have gotten even lower if I've gone to the gym and or stood for long (I've seen as low as 193.2 before once). However on a normal day if I do neither I'm usually 193.9 before bed. I typically claim 194cm or 6'4 and change/6'4 1/2. So in Ibra's case my estimate for him is that he is around my height and that he received at least his 194cm in the afternoon whereas the 194.5 may be earlier.
YoungBlood said on 12/Jun/17
@Canson What do you guys mean by out of bed?
Canson said on 10/Jun/17
I think the 194 is his lowest and he would measure 194.5 a few hours earlier maybe late morning. He looks a good 195.5-196 out of bed
Canson said on 1/Jun/17
@SJH: I don't think I'm any taller than Ibra is honestly. He looks stronger 6'4" than solid. Kapernick the same maybe I'm a hair over Kap but if I am it's not anything either of us would notice. That's how that height is supposed to look 194cm. But I commend you because at least you know he doesn't look 197cm like some say. People have no idea how tall a legit AJ like person at 197 really looks. Instead they think a 192cm guy like Pique is 194 just because they show it on paper. Well you know how that went when you met John Wall. You had him right where my buddy who met him had him (he's also met Beal and said he's 6'3 or so and Beal is taller than Wall very clearly). The pre draft measurements are not all honest. If someone plays a certain position and needs the boost they get it as is the case with Dwayne Wade who's an inch shorter than he's listed (190cm) barefoot and 192.5-193 in shoes
Canson said on 30/May/17
Well David Rob pulled an official measurement from Jis sport. Now we can believe they're wrong (some are in the other direction usually) but I'd say they got it right. My guess is he is 6'5 out of bed or slightly over and that's his afternoon (true height) somewhere between 194/194.5
said on 29/May/17
If you had to choose from tallest to shortest between Fellaini, Smalling and Ibrahimovic?
Editor Rob: Fellaini has a lot of hair so might look taller in photos, but I still feel Ibrahimovic would edge those 2 out.
david said on 8/May/17
just because Rob says he is 194 doesn't mean he is. it is mostly a opinion only he knows himself. whatever Rob listing is isnt always right. for instance many would disagree we Fury being listed at 6-7 or Haye being at 6-2? he has also been measured as 195cm before. he claims to be 6-5 and that is not upgrading him.
Canson said on 6/May/17
@David: I'm not attacking you I'm stating a fact while you're upgrading him. Look at the caption above. It clearly says 194 and 194.5 likely just one is earlier than the other. But you may state what you want
david said on 25/Apr/17
@Canson. wow. we disagree by 1xcm so u feel the need to correct me. PSG measured Ibra is 195cm.Ibra is 195cm to me. not gonna debate of 1cm.
Canson said on 21/Apr/17
@David: ibra measures 194 not 195

Editor Rob: Mark, probably at end of his nose.
Ollie said on 6/Apr/17
Ronaldo can look closer to 6-2 sometimes but their is this pic of Pogba who is 6-3 looking a good 2 inches taller. anywhere between 185 and 187 seems good to me.
said on 24/Mar/17Click Here
. Ibra standing properly does not look shorter than Mings in fact he looks taller in my pic standing proper.Click Here
here is another one.Ibrahimovic is 6-5. he has 3 inches on a legit 6-2 Djokovic and he made 6-0.5 Nadal look small. under 194cm seems unlikely but i think 196cm is what Ibra is.
Tyrone Mings said on 10/Mar/17
Zlatan was clearly shorter than 6'5 (196cm) Tyrone Mings the other day...so around 6'4 (193cm) seems about right.
Canson said on 9/Mar/17
@Johnson: Ibra looks 2cm taller than him at worst it's half inch. Pique has thicker hair which could add a fraction. I'll give you 192.5 and Ibra at 194. Only thing is how do we know Ibra wasn't measured in the morning as well? He has a 194 and a 194.5. Looking at him he looks a strong 6'4" but you can't always tell looking I will say that much.
S.J.H said on 9/Mar/17
Honestly Pique look 190-191cm with kobe bryant. Zlatan i think he may have grow a cm at 193cm and get 194cm for a morning measurement just that simple. You're taller def taller than zlatan. Colin kaepernick and zlatan were close in height both just get this 194cm mark in the morning
S.J.H said on 9/Mar/17
Honestlt Pique look 190-191cm with kobe bryant. Zlatan i think he may have grow a cm at 193cm and get 194cm for a morning measurement just that simple. You're taller def taller than zlatan. Colin kaepernick and zlatan were close in height both just get this 194cm mark in the morning
Johnson said on 8/Mar/17
@Canson the thing is I saw Piqué measuring 194.75 with my own eyes, there is the video. So I just ask.. why was it that way? I meant, I know he busts a gut, but that is 0.7 cm, yes it's early morning... a 192 person cannot get 194.7-194.8 busting a gut in a medical test with a digital stadiometer. It sounds like he is a solid 193 cm evening guy. and Ibra is only 1 cm taller than him.
Canson said on 7/Mar/17
Johnson you are correct that 197 is in shoes. I can look at him and tell he is not 192. He's about as tall as I am. I can see him being a near 196 out of bed like me and 193.9 at his low maybe even a hair taller. Essentially he would be a solid 194 by Rob's standards which is your actual height 5-7 hours on your feet as that is the heigh that you walk around at the majority of the day. So if I'm on my feet off and on for 16 or 18 hours out of the day I would claim 194 if I used metric but since I live in the US I say I'm 6'4 or 6'4 and sum change typically even though I've also been just a hair over 193 after being on my feet in public maybe a bar etc late night. I've gotten as low as 193.1-.2 before but don't consider this my true height as on a normal day it's about 193.9 with no extra work like the gym etc
Canson said on 7/Mar/17
@Johnson: so it says above that ibra is 194 and 194.5. Don't know when either took place. But why is it that Ibra is off and not Pique? Why is the shorter person always have to be taller than he really is and ditto for the taller one with you?
Canson said on 7/Mar/17
@S.J.H: def not 192. He's st least 193.5 at his low and my height won't surprise me if he's the same. 193.9. Pique is the one who is off. Pique is only 192 tops.
S.J.H said on 7/Mar/17
Zlatan is really not your height at your lowest. At most he is 193cm and his own claim 192cm could also be possible.
said on 6/Mar/17
Rob, did you saw the pictures next to Djokovic? He has like 3 in on him. Do you agree?
Editor Rob: John, when standing tall beside Novak, I think he would be 3 inches taller.
Canson said on 1/Mar/17
@Shiva: 2cm is a lot. Thats .7874. Most lose 3/4", that's the norm for guys my height. S.J.H is two to three inches taller than I am and loses less than an inch. I have long legs but am proportionately built that's just the norm for me. Bobby3342 another poster has said before he's 6'4 7/8 out of bed and 6'4 1/8 at his low and Ali Baba 6'6.75 6'6 at his low. You lose more than I do but you must be more active. I only get down to the under 6'4 1/8 arena if I'm dehrydrated or am compressed and that's an incu
shiva 181 cms said on 28/Feb/17
@canson I don't know if he loses just 2cms straight out of bed to before bed
You're probably same height as him
but how can you lose just 2cms being 6'4.25-5 you may be having long legs and short torso for your height
Even I at 5'11.5 lose an inch (184cms just out of bed -181.5cms just before bed)
Johnson said on 28/Feb/17
@Heylo curious thing claiming 192 because in a message in August 2015 a poster said he claimed 197:
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
Johnson said on 26/Feb/17
@Canson I only talk about facts. If I have seen Pique measuring 194.7 its difficult to believe Ibrahimovic measuring 194 flat. Because I think Ibra is 1 cm taller than Piqué. My explanation is we can't hear decimals in the clip and Piqué was gut busting and Ibra wasn't. I think Ibra is 194.5 and Piqué 193.5. I think you and them are very similar. But that is just my respectable opinion. We can't all agree in opinions. Piqué claims 194 and probably this year he was measured shorter than last year.
Canson said on 26/Feb/17
@Shiva: doubt as high as 196.5 out of bed. Prob 196 maybe 195.5 and 193.5-194 (worst case) at his low more likely 194 range. He's my height guys our size don't lose an inch I lose 3/4" (195.8-.9/193.9-194). I don't believe pique is as tall as he is listed. Id say 194-194.5 out of bed and 192-192.5 at his lowest and 2cm shorter than ibra (3/4" roughly). What throws it off is when they measured. Ibra to me looks like a low as he looks a legit 194 guy where pique would measure what he did with hair out of bed.
shiva 181 cms said on 26/Feb/17
Zlatan ibrahimovic's height out of bed : 196.5cms
Before bed :194cms flat
He's absolutely same as Alexander skarsgard
Gerard pique's height out of bed: 195.5 cms
Before bed : 193 cms
He's a centemeter shorter than zlatan
Heylo said on 25/Feb/17
And he was 23 years old at that moment, approaching 24. Could he have grown another inch by 24-25? I see it as unlikely. But I'm not a doctor. Perhaps there is a possibility for a few guys having a very late puberty but Zlatan sure looked like a grown man to me.
said on 25/Feb/17
Okay guys. Here is the video: Click Here
It might only be available in Sweden but I got a screenshot with swedish subtitles in where the numbers are shown. He says "I am 192 cm tall and weigh 93 kilo". This was back in 2005 when he had signed for Juventus.
Rob, this is something to think about. Why would Zlatan Ibrahimovic downgrade his real height by 2cm? He's an honest guy.
Here is the screenshot:
Editor Rob: at one point he may well have measured 192cm...
Canson said on 25/Feb/17
@Reece: well rob says he measured 194/194.5. That's along the lines of what he is. People assume a legit 6'4.25-.5 guy is 6'5-6'6 all the time
Canson said on 25/Feb/17
@Heylo: no chance he's that low. He's easily what rob has him here at worst he's a strong 6'4 guy like 193.7 (6'4.25 at his lowest with large proportions). And would hit 6'5 upon waking. At best he's 194-194.3 at his lowest
CNROM89 said on 24/Feb/17
I think his weight around 90-91 kg. He listed 95 kg everywhere but he is not that muscular.
Johnson said on 22/Feb/17
@Heylo you should post the video and the age he was at the moment answering 191-192
Reece said on 22/Feb/17
Zlatan looks huge with Nadal and Djokovic! he had 2.5-3 inches on Djokovic on the Tennis court and I doubt Novak is under 187cm.he also had less in footwear. Ibra I think is the full 6,5 196cm on the Dot after seeing those pictures. He made 183-184cm Nadal look small!. in the real world 6,0 and above are considered tall.
Heylo said on 21/Feb/17
Someone may have said this already but Zlatan told reporters back in 2005 that he wasn't more than 1.91-1.92. I'm not kidding. It was part of the documentary about his first years as a pro footballer, from Malmo to Juventus.
I think a footballer who from time to time might be measured by doctors in health controls knows his height. Why would he downrate himself a full inch?

I'm not convinced he's quite a genuine 6ft5.
said on 18/Feb/17
I think Zlatan is a full 196, he towers over 191 guys like pogba and is clearly taller than 192 and 193 people. Click Here
Canson said on 6/Feb/17
@S.J.H: I think Kobe is closer to 195 than 194. He looks more like a 6'5 guy albeit no a full one than Jordan and Barkley. Kobe maybe worst case Is 194.8ish at his lowest
Canson said on 6/Feb/17
@S.J.H: I can see Ibra being my height maybe 195.8 out of bed or 195.9 and 194 at night (6'4 3/8 or maybe 1 mm under like I can also fall). 6'4.25 on a gym day. Pique definitely isn't a full 6'4. Ones has 2 cm on him. Pique is 192range no more than that. I doubt any of us solid or strong 6'4s here myself Bobby3342 Rampage would have a problem edging Pique, but ibra if he stood in front of me I wouldn't be able to tell a diff and with maybe Bobby the same. Rampage may but only if Ibra really is 194 because a cm is where you begin to tell the difference in height and even then if a 193 guy had the shoe advantage it could get them at advantage
said on 6/Feb/17
I would say if alexander skarsgard is just an honest 6'4 then zlatan is probably not over 6'4.25 and measured 6'4.5 just early the morning. Simple as that. Pique is in 6'3 range not 6'4
194cm? My modesty tell me he look 192-193.5cm max
Pique 193-194cm? Biggest joke. Kobe is then a real 194 plus guy even not close to camera still edging out pique smoothly

Canson said on 30/Dec/16
@Alex: ibra is taller than Pique it's the other way around. I agree Ibra isn't the 6'5 everyone here wants to make him just because they want Pique to be 193-194, but he is my height looking at him (and I'd say otherwise if I didn't believe it). He's not lower than maybe 194 flat at his lowest. He looks physically as tall as a guy like Colin Kapernick and taller than Brady tbh. The worst case is he measured the 194.5 in the morning and is 193 range evening. I agree on that part. But some of the stuff below that I'm reading is complete utter fluff like we didn't hear the real measurement across the loud speaker when it started with 194 or that he has "grown". He was an adult when he had those two measurements that Rob has listed above. It's always an excuse used when someone else doesn't measure up to someone example Pique vs Ibra in order to make Pique the supposed height they must inflate Ibra's to make the math work. Pique is at most 192cm (weak 6'4). Don't know how he measured 194.7 unless they counted his hair, shoes, or he was standing on tippy toes just like Renaldo does or some other type of stance that adds height to him
Alex said on 25/Dec/16
He is no taller than 192cm (6'3 and a half)...saw him standing to Pogba (6'3) the other day and they were the same height...even Pique is taller than him here

I noticed that Pique seems to standout most of the times in a building/room and he looks freaking tallish! Even though most of Barcelona team mates are way shorter than him, I'm speaking about it generally when he faces other teams/footballers. He's definetly 193 and Zlatan is 195. There's more than 1cm between them
Nightwish said on 18/Sep/16
Had the pleasure of attending Watford v Manchester United for work yesterday. Height is one of the things I have to take note of, either Ibrahimovic is hitting the full 6'5 or the popular conception of Pogba needs to be downgraded. Both players were part of a wall and there was a noticeable height difference between Ibrahimovic and Pogba, more than I expected.
Canson said on 18/Sep/16
@Rampage: he is I bet. People here are making Ibra taller (when all of his measurements were in the 194 range) just to make Pique over 6'4.

I don't get it when his stadio meter measurements are listed above as 194 and 194.5 why people are saying he's 196. They don't under measure their players. Out of bed I can see 196 but he closes business in the 194 range at most (maybe not a flat 194) but if that's all he could measure he wouldn't be any more than that

Jaap Stam isn't solid 190 cm. 190 cm is his morning height maybe. I think he is solid 6'2. He doesn't look a cm over than that with Edwin Van Der Sar.

Pogba is 191cm, He said that himself in an Interview, 6'3.25 looks accurate for Pogba
Canson said on 22/Aug/16
@James: Pogba does look "about" 6'3 with James Harden. I can't tell the diff because Harden is closer to the camera but appears 1cm (shoulders) maybe 1/2" taller maybe depending. From someone who met Harden he's supposedly in the 191-192 arena which'd put Pogba 190-191 essentially at his lowest and prob a full 6'3 at worst 6'2.8 which if that's his low makes him a legit 6'3 essentially

Rob, I think you should review him. Deserves 195cm listing atleast! He seemed to tower over Paul Pogba at post match interview yesterday.
Canson said on 20/Aug/16
@James:I agree and he looks legit 192 too. I'd put Him in the 6'3.5-.75 range I underestimated him at 191 previously.on the other hand, I can agree with Johnson, in that Ibra can look very tall like 6'5ish, but is prob around where Rob has him in the 194 range. Someone who falls to around that range at a low like he does with his long limbs looks standout next to his contemporaries
Canson said on 20/Aug/16
@Mike: the others are likely off or bad angle. Ibra is a strong 6'4 guy maybe at best a weak 6'5 if that measurement was an afternoon

Him and 6'3 Paul Pogba. If Pogba is really 191cm, then Zlatan has to be about 196/197cm.
CNROM89 said on 19/Aug/16
My guess for tall players:
Courtois: 198,5 ( a bit shorter than Mertesacker)
Pique: 192 ( weak 193)
Dzeko: 192 ( Similiar to Pique)
Fraser Forster: 199
Neuer: 192,5 ( Rob's listing is best for him.)
Varane: 191,5 ( same as Pogba or a little taller.)
Jan Koller: 201
Joe Hart: 193
Petr Cech: 195,5-196
Van Der Sar: 198-199
Gianluigi Donnarumma: 195 ( he is 17 years old.)
Diego Lopez: 196 ( legit 6'5)

@Johnson: this is a better pic with Pique and Ibra
Canson said on 18/Aug/16
@Johnson: pique may have grown it's all possible but he looks shorter than Ibra does by roughly 2cm. I could maybe put him 192.3 and Zlatan at 194.3. I will say I can't say Ibra falling below 194 flat if he even gets that low. I am 194 flat on a normal day in the evening and I can see him at least as tall as me if not poss edging me. He has similar build too
Canson said on 18/Aug/16
@Correg: I agree with Rob maybe he's 193 as an absolute low which would make him near an out of bed 196He has long legs so may not lose as much.

Pique and Ibra
I think Gerard Piqué should have his own section. I think he could grow up passing the 21 years old 1 cm. I would bet for solid 193 cm
Correg said on 16/Aug/16
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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
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.
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

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.

Piqué and Ferdinand
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

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

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!

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..
said on 23/Jan/16
@5ft 9.25 You only need a screen on your computer of more than 19" to see it in the clip video
Anyway, I'm surprised for that 194,7-194,8 cm mark
5ft 9.25 said on 23/Jan/16
@We can't see the digital monitor. The background person says the value in spanish.
said on 21/Jan/16
@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!
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.
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.
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.
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.

Look at him nex to David Luiz . His real height is 196 cm .
Andrea said on 9/Aug/15
Yeah, those who still say 6'3.5 are just delusional. It is true that he's been listed at 192 a lot at the beginning of his career but there's no way he's that low! 194-195, as measured!
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.

6'3.5 (192 cm) can forget neither at its worst day he would measure this brand, ibra is a solid 194cm

Andrea said on 1/Aug/15
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!

192 cm (6'3 and a half) just like Pique...no taller..some of his clubs measured him with shoes on..plus he is taller than most soccer players so he appears huge comapared to most others on the pitch..he really isnt ''that'' big

It's hard to say from those pics, S.J.H! The only thing you can say is they're pretty close in height but you should have them standing next to each other barefoot on a leveled ground (like the height challenge photos) to spot any difference!

Yeah a very solid 6ft4½ guy. Probably 195cm earlier in the day and for sure clears 6ft5 out of bed
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?
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.]
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!]
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.
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.]

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...

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?
