Lazio midfielder Milinkovic-Savic welcomes Ibrahimovic comparison

Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic admits he models himself on Swedish icon Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Milinkovic-Savic was declared the midfield equivalent of Ibrahimovic by Fabio Capello.

And the Serb told DAZN: "I really like Ibrahimovic, both as a player and as a person, so I really like this definition.

“Perhaps we're similar in physical stature and technique, plus I jump like him in the box.

“I knew I'd stay at Lazio. I heard the speculation, but I didn't care about it too much."
