Last February, Dinamo Bucharest signed Edgar Ié and discovered three months later that it was not him who had arrived in Romania, but his twin brother Edelino. The surreal story is told by Marca. The Spanish newspaper adds that investigations are underway into a possible mistaken identity and that, if confirmed, it could lead to a penalty for Dinamo, who are fighting not to be relegated, which could see the 8 points withdrawn collected during the five matches played by Edelino. .

What made Dinamo suspicious was the fact that the person they thought was Edgar only spoke Portuguese and barely knew a few words of English, although he had played in Spain, France, Turkey and the Netherlands. According to Romanian journalist Emanuel Rosu, Dinamo asked the alleged Edgar Ié to show his driving license, which the player refused. Edgar Miguel Ié and his twin Edelino were born on May 1, 1994 in Guinea-Bissau. The first is a national player, having played in the youth categories with Portugal. He was part of the youth team of Sporting de Portugal, until his signing for Barcelona B in 2012. In December 2014, he made his debut with the first team then coached by Luis Enrique and in 2015, he left Barca. He then played for Villarreal B, Os Belenenses, Lille, Nantes, Trabzonspor, Feyenoord and Basaksehir, before signing for Dinamo Bucharest. Edelino's career was much more modest, spent almost entirely at small Portuguese clubs. His last team was Tluchowia Tluchow in Poland.
