Amra Silajdzic’s Husband, Edin Dzeko

Edin Dzeko was born on 17 March 1986 and just like his wife, Edin is also from Sarajevo, SFR Yugoslavia. His parents are Belma Dzeko (mother) and Midhat Dzeko (father). Edin grew up with a sister, Merima Dzeko, who’s been also his best friend ever since childhood.

As a child, Edin Dzeko as well as his family, survived the Bosnian War of Independence. It was one of the most unfortunate and tragic periods of time in the entire history of this country.

But you can’t believe the fact that if it wasn’t because of Edin’s beloved mother, he wouldn’t be alive today and the world would’ve forever miss “the Bosnian Diamond.”

One day just like any other day, the young Edin was supposed to be headed for the training ground so as to practice as usual; but before even leaving the house, Belma stops her one and only son, and a few minutes later, the training ground got bombed.

So the story goes back to 1992 when the war started. Both the Croats and the Bosnian Serbs were fighting for independence and ethnicity. Soon enough the whole country turned into a mess, but the capital city, Sarajevo suffered the most. The war went on for 3 years, up until 1995.

Obviously after the war ended, everyone was recovering from the war and its unfortunate outcomes, they were trying to go back to their normal routine, including Edin Dzeko and his family.

As a matter of fact, Edin’s father started taking him to the training sessions again and soon enough all the people were leaving those dark memories behind.

Speaking of Edin’s father, Midhat Dzeko, it should be mentioned that he was a professional footballer as well. He used to play for Bosnia and Herzegovina. Actually Midhat had a significance role in helping Edin to nourish his passion for football and make his dreams come true.

And now several years later, Edin Dzeko is a successful football player who may be an inspiration and a true hero in so many people’s lives.

Speaking of his magnificence, we should say that in addition to his brilliant goalscoring skills, Edin Dzeko is known as one of the best strikers in Europe. And now that the reason behind why people call him “The Bosnian Diamond” is justified, it may be more understandable and also appreciable.

As a matter of fact, in 2009 when Edin Dzeko was playing for

VfL Wolfsburg

, along with 30 other players he was nominated for the Ballon d'Or award.

Edin Dzeko’s Club Career

Edin Dzeko processed his training years at the

Zeljeznicar

football club. He started playing at youth level in 1996. Back then he was 10 years old. Finally in 2003, he was ready to play as a regular player at senior level.

Just like his youth career, Edin’s senior career started with Zeljeznicar football club as well. In point of fact, in the early years of his career, everyone thought Dzeko wasn’t a good player. He wasn’t skilled and needed to work on his technical abilities.

But Jiri Plisek, Edin’s former coach, saw through the young player and noticed his potentials; therefore by advising

Teplice

football club to buy Edin Dzeko, Plisek actually gave him another chance.

In 2005, Edin had a loan spell with the Czech football club,

Usti nad Labem

. But after only 15 appearances in the same year, he returned to Teplice. Edin stayed with Teplice for two seasons, from 2005 up to 2007. Throughout his 43 appearances for this team, he scored 16 goals.

Later he signed his contract with VfL Wolfsburg, which was worth €4 million. Unlike the way things were back in Zeljeznicar, Dzeko suddenly started to demonstrate that bright side of his potentials that nobody had noticed before.

Subsequently the Bulgarian sports media website, Sportal, announced Dzeko as the best striker in the first half of the 2007-2008

Bundesliga

season.

In the next season, VfL Wolfsburg won the Bundesliga champions for the first time in its entire history; this victory was mostly due to the amazing contribution of “the magic triangle”.

This triangle includes the absolute genius players

Grafite

, Zvjezdan Misimovic and of course Edin Dzeko. They were some of the best strikers in Wolfsburg that lead to some massive changes in this football club.

On 3 January 2011, Manchester City bought Dzeko from VfL Wolfsburg. The transfer fee was worth €32 million, and it’s considered as this club’s second highest transfer figure. The first one was Robinho’s €42.5 million fee, when he first moved from

Real Madrid

to Manchester City.

Back then it was also the sixth highest transfer fee in the entire history of

Premier League

.

In season 2011-2012, Edin scored four goals in only one Premier League match against

Tottenham Hotspur

. Later he was announced as the first Manchester City player scoring four goals in one Premier League game.

Edin Dzeko also won the Premier League Player of the Month award in August by scoring 6 Premier Leagues goals in 3 matches.

Finally on 12 August 2015, Dzeko joined the Italian football club,

Roma

.

On 21 February 2016, Edin Dzeko scored his first hat-trick for Roma in a 5-0 victory over the Italian team,

Palermo

.

By the end of season 2016-2017, he had scored 29 goals in Serie A, which gave him the Capocannoniere title. He was also the first Bosnian footballer ever receiving this award.

Again on 9 October 2017, Edin was nominated for the Ballon D'Or award by the French newspaper France Football.

In addition to all the records he has broken so far, Edin Dzeko also became the first Bosnian player in football history to score a hat-trick in the top European club competition.

Edin Dzeko’s International Career

Edin Dzeko began his international career in 2003. He actually presented

Bosnia and Herzegovina

national team at both youth levels under-19 and under-21.

However, Edin had his senior international debut on 2 June 2007 in a match against

Turkey

. On his first appearance, he scored a beautiful volley goal, which finished the game with a 3-2 victory for Bosnia.

The nickname "Bosnian Diamond" was first given to him by Marjan Mijajlovic, the Bosnian sports commentator, on 28 March 2009. It happened during a match against

Belgium

, when Dzeko scored a stunning goal.

By scoring 9 goals for Bosnia in 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification, he became the second highest goal scorer in that season. Dzeko also scored his first hat-trick for his country’s national team on 8 September 2012 in an 8-1 victory over

Liechtenstein

.

On that account by scoring 24 goals, Edin was announced as the leading goal scorer in the entire history of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

In August 2014 when Emir Spahic got retired from the international team, Dzeko was announced as the new captain by the manager Safet Susic.
