Aleksandar Kolarov Opens Door to Becoming Serbia President One Day

Aleksandar Kolarov could be the president of Serbia one day if recent comments are anything to go by.

The Manchester City full-back is loved by fans of his club as well as those back in his homeland.

And as he took part in a Q&A with City’s official YouTube channel recently, Kolarov hinted that the big job in Serbia might be his one day.

When sarcastically asked by a fan if he was really the president of Serbia, the left-back laughed then answered, via the video above: “At the moment, no. At the moment. Because I’m here at the moment in Manchester so it’s not serious if I’m doing Serbian president and Manchester City football. So it’s not serious.

“But, in the future, they have to choose me. But then I will explain that in a couple of years.”

Tomislav Nikolic better watch – president Kolarov is already waiting in the wings it seems.

If he was to make the move from football to politics, he wouldn’t be the first to do it.

George Weah was once a star for AC Milan, Monaco, PSG and even Manchester City in a successful playing career, but he’s now senator of Montserrado County in Liberia.

Only last year former Arsenal and Tottenham defender Sol Campbell missed out on becoming the Tory candidate for mayor of London.

And there are examples in other sports too, with ex-boxer Vitali Klitschko now serving as the mayor of Kiev and British Olympic gold medal winner Sebastian Coe becoming a Tory MP in 1992 being just two of those.

Of course, Kolarov could have simply been joking and we’ve got all his Serbian fans’ hopes up for nothing.
