On Ibra's approach, he recalled to Lundh: "I was really shocked when he called. Actually, I thought that it was not Zlatan at all. There is someone on Facebook who can do him perfectly, I thought he called me. But it was really Zlatan. We've been talking for hours, hours. I remember it well. Over everything, the future and that sort of thing."
Tankovic also said of Dzeko: "He did not immediately promise paradise, because nobody in the world can promise that. Bosnia then played for the first time at the World Cup. I can not remember all the details of that conversation, but we had a good conversation. We talked in a hotel in Manchester and talked about the future. A few days later, Zlatan called and I spoke the same to him."
