On Monday, an unusual scene took place during the Ballon d’Or ceremony where Novak Djokovic pretended to be a player for AC Milan. Djokovic, the world number one tennis player and Grand Slam record holder, was approached by American influencer iShowSpeed who didn’t immediately recognize him and asked for his name.
Djokovic seized the opportunity to play along and replied, “I’m a new star for AC Milan but I haven’t played yet, I’m preparing for the next match.” This response is not surprising coming from Djokovic, who is a longtime friend of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and a big fan of the Rossoneri.
While Djokovic’s comment was made in jest, it has sparked rumors and speculation about a potential move to AC Milan. However, it’s important to note that Djokovic has not expressed any serious interest in pursuing a career in football and his focus remains on tennis.
Djokovic’s love for football is well-known, and he has previously expressed his admiration for AC Milan and other top clubs. He has also played in charity football matches and even trained with the Serbian national team in the past. However, his passion for tennis is undeniable, and he has dedicated his life to becoming one of the greatest players of all time.
Speed : « Comment t’appelles-tu, tu m’as l’air si familier. »
Djokovic : « Je suis une nouvelle star de l’AC Milan mais je n’ai pas encore joué, je me prépare pour le prochain match. »
Y’a rien qui va. 😭
