Despite yesterday’s report that Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic boarded a plane after Wednesday night’s UEFA Champions League win versus Benfica and headed to Sarajevo to grant a dying child’s wish to meet him, the press officer for PSG says that the report is not true and that Ibrahimovic did not fly to Sarajevo.
However, Ibrahimovic did say:
“I get these type of requests every week.
“The only difference now is that they have used media.
“We’ll see what I can do. I always try to make everyone happy. We’ll see what I can do for him. It’s sad. When everybody is happy I am happy.”
Zlatan, we’d be happy if you visited the child to make his wish come true. Make it happen, please!
