Zlatan Ibrahimovic may not have a parody when it comes to his flamboyant ego and figurative responses to journalists, but in terms of facial mien and body physique, the towering striker may have got one in Nihad Đedović.
The Bosnian basketballer shares a stunning striking resemblance with the Swedish star that has left many journalists confused, with a number of them asking if there is a paternity affinity between the duo.
Ibrahimovic is currently playing for Italian giants AC Milan and since joining them in January market, the Swedish has not failed to replicate his heyday glory with his brilliant presence.
Sweden legend fired AC Milan to the semifinals of this season's Coppa Italia championship following their 4-2 win over Torino.
The 38-year-old scored an extra-time goal to ensure they reach the last four stage of the competition where they will battle it out with Juventus.
On the other hands, Nihad Đedović is a basketballer who plays for Bayern Munich in Basketball Bundesliga, where he could operate as a small forward or shooting guard.
The 30-year-old NBA star is one of the key players of Bosnia and Herzegovina national team where he is making his own history as the Swedish football star.
Recently, Đedović's relationship with Ibrahimovic was drawn into the discussion again when a journalist asked him if he was ever related with the Swedish.
The Bosnian replied with a cheeky response similar to that of the AC Milan star.
"No, my father has never been to Sweden," Đedović said.
When Zlatan Ibrahimovic was asked the same question, the former Barcelona star jokingly said his father might have fathered another son in Bosnia.
"But my father has been to Bosnia,'' he said.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za had reported that Zlatan Ibrahimovic's towering statue has been defaced and burnt by angry Malmo football fans after the Swedish star bought a 25% stake in rival club Hammarby.
The Swedish star became the latest football star to venture into club ownership after buying a chunk of percentage in a Swedish topflight club which was announced on Wednesday, November 27.
The development, however, irked Malmo fans who went to deface and burn his giant statue built outside Swedbank Stadion in a courageous show of displeasure.
