I am NOT @Ibra_official…

Zlatan Ibrahimović lookalike basketball player Nihad Đedović has spoken out about being mistaken for the former Sweden international.
The 28-year-old Bosnian plays for German football club Bayern Munich’s basketball team as well as representing the Bosnia and Herzegovina national side.
Speaking to the EuroLeague, in which Bayern compete, Đedović said that on a recent visit to Paris “every second person” stopped him for a photo thinking that he was Zlatan.
He also complains that people are constantly commenting on the similarities and tagging him in photos of the LA Galaxy star on social media.
Despite being nine years his junior, the basketball player does bear a remarkable likeness to Ibrahimović – especially since “growing my hair now”.
