Doddy’s café serves a huge burger of 600 grams named as ‘Le Zlatan’.

Zlatan is not an easy figure to beat given his strong and huge presence on the field. We don’t see him getting nutmegged that often but it was a different case when Lille faced PSG.

Zlatan had a wide smile after the incident but surprisingly PSG ended up winning 1-0 courtesy an own goal by Chedjou.
