The Swedish superstar appeared for his seventh club in Europe’s elite club competition, as Jose Mourinho’s side lost 1-0 in Switzerland.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has set a Champions League record after playing for Manchester United against Basel on Wednesday.
Jose Mourinho’s men lost 1-0 in Switzerland, but Ibrahimovic nevertheless made history, appearing for his seventh club in Europe’s elite club competition, more than any other player.
Ibrahimovic has played for Ajax, Juventus, Inter, Barcelona, Milan, PSG and United in the Champions League, though he has never won the trophy.
The Swede could not help United to the knockout stages against Basel, as Michael Lang’s 89th-minute goal earned Basel all three points.
United remain top of Group A, with 12 points, while Basel and CSKA Moscow are locked level, with nine points each.
Basel’s victory, and Lang’s goal, has extended a quite amazing record for the club, with no English side ever managing to keep a clean sheet at St. Jakob-Park, in 14 previous such matches.
7 – Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the first player to play for seven different clubs in the Champions League. Journey.

14 – No English side has ever managed to keep a clean sheet on the road against Basel in European competition (14 such fixtures). Curse.
