“I am very happy that it has become what I really wanted from the beginning when I was at Atromitos. It is a team that offers everything to its players. From the facilities, the stadiums and so on, and everyone has the best thing to say, which of course I already knew that, even as an opponent, but the main thing was the way The president himself dealt with it which was very special.
He made me understand from the first moment how warm the atmosphere in the team is, and moreover, from the first conversation he completely convinced me that this step is what I want to do. From what he told me, I really wanted to help my new team right away. Honestly, for me the CV doesn’t matter at all. What matters to me 100% is helping the brave.
From the moment I decided to leave Turkey, I had proposals in hand, but Atromitos was the best possibility for me, from things I already knew, and even more so after the conversations I had with the President.
Atromitos over the years has shown how stable the team can be. It’s basically a team that has goals, that always has good players, that wants to stand out, and I also saw that as an opponent, who every time, no matter which team I was playing against, always made it difficult for me. This whole package and what this team represents, really made me want to come here with all my heart.
I never set long-term goals. I come with a lot of motivation and my personal pursuit is to give my best and help the team progress and get better week after week. All our minds should be occupied with daily work.
Atromitos is a historic team, they have won many big matches many times. I know this very well. “I’m waiting for the people who love the team on the field, and if something good happens this year, after 100 years, our joy will all be doubled.”
