I have come to play not to talk
I speak for fun. There hasn’t been many times in my life that I have actually nothing to say – perhaps sometimes when I am sleeping. However, spoken words about one self before actions would be like writing Chinese take-away review based on menu before even ordering food. Past merits and games counts nothing coming to a new club and I want to be counted and judged immediately by my actions. So it is football that should do the talking not me. I don’t wanna do pretalks, promises or excuses, you will have your answers about me from the first minutes I enter the pitch. However, for those who asked – some of the questions attached below here - about my reasons for coming to DIF instead of other options, it is quite straightforward:
1. I want to win something. I have played years in bigger leagues but always mid table, fighting against relegation or aiming for promotion. In DIF I see a tradition of winning trophies and potential of doing it with immediate effect.
2. I want to play for the national team again. I was not come be watched even once when I played in Germany and knowing how highly the manager regards Allsvenskan this is my opportunity to be seen again.
Nu kör vi hård!
HOPE I ANSWERED AT LEAST TO SOME OF THESE QUESTIONS:

First, Welcome to Djurgårdens IF.
This is not a question, but hope its ok. We fans have big expectations at you, cause we think that you is the player who is good for the team, to play more consist(?). (Jämnt at Swedish.) Last season was not good, so we hope we should finish at the top this season.
Good luck, see you at Stockholms Stadion ;)
PS. You must learn "Sjung för gamla Djurgården", that is the song who all fans sing in the beginning at each home-match :) Ds.
Sorry for my bad english :(

Hi Aki! I would like to welcome you to Stockholm and Djurgårdens IF. I hope you can give some stability to our defence. What is your goal with DIF? Is this a chance to go abroad again or are you settling down?
I have noticed that you left my favorite club in Germany, was it no good there?
At last, welcome to DIF and I hope you enjoy it.
