‘I know OHL quite well, because I played against it a few times when the club was still active at the highest level. I remember OHL as a nice club with enthusiastic supporters who push the players forward especially in home games. During my career I have always played in the first division, but I don’t care in which series I play football – I play every game to win. And like I said, I want to promote with my new club. ‘
