Ibrahimovic’s Balkan doppelganger
When he was asked earlier this year who would play him in a movie on his life, Zlatan Ibrahimovic opted for Sylvester Stallone. The only difficulty with that, of course, is that Sylvester is now 72, and while Zlatan is no spring chicken himself, he’s close enough to half that age.
Nihad Djedovic looks a better option. An identical option.
The 28-year-old professional basketball player, who plays with Bayern Munich and Bosnia and Herzegovina, spoke with the people who run the sport’s EuroLeague last week about being Zlatan’s doppelganger.
“He has a Balkanic, or ex-Yugoslavian genes, so I think people see something in me that they saw in him.
“This summer I was in Paris for three days and I cannot say every person, but every second person in the street stopped me to make photos with me. It’s incredible.”
