1) The 24-year-old was born in former Yugoslavia, but his family moved to Luxembourg when he was young (before the outbreak of war), and he joined Schifflange 95 as a youth player.

2) Pjanic did play for Luxembourg’s Under-17 and Under-19 side, but in 2008 opted to play for the country of his birth, now Bosnia and Herzegovina.

3) His talent was immediately noticeable, and in 2004, aged just 14, French outfit Metz won the race for his signature.

4) Pjanic impressed, and was given a senior debut aged just 17 in Ligue 1 during the 2007/08 season. Immediately, he became a regular starter – and played 37 times that term – bagging five goals.

5) He’s nicknamed ‘The Painter’, because of his flair, composure and effortless style. Pjanic makes football art!
