A case of mistaken Zlatans

MOST COMMENTED

[OFF THE POST] For a few glorious hours, fans of Greek side PAOK thought they would be watching Zlatan Ibrahimovic score goals for the club when the team's official Web site inadvertently announced that the Swedish striker would be joining the side for the upcoming season. It turns out that PAOK had confused its Zlatans. The club actually signed Zlatan Muslimovic.

Somewhat bizarrely, Muslimovic's career mirrors that of the more famous Zlatan. Both players have Bosnian parentage and grew up in Sweden and acquired Swedish citizenship. Muslimovic has spent time in Italy, playing for nine different teams in nine years.

Ibrahimovic, meanwhile, plies his trade with Inter Milan, who wear black and blue striped jerseys - the same as Atalanta, Muslimovic's last club.

Unlike Ibrahimovic, Muslimovic decided to play for the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team, scoring nine goals in 12 appearances.

PAOK eventually fixed the error on the team's Web site. Unfortunately, the change was not made in time to alert fans that had assembled at the airport that they were looking for the wrong Zlatan.
