“I will try to enjoy this dream as much as possible.”

“It’s not easy to make friends when you’re at the top. At least not when you’re young and you’ve come from somewhere else.”

“No matter what level you play, nobody is guaranteed to be a starter every time, you have to earn the trust and deserve that role.”

Dad never talked about winning, being the best, he only talked about development. All about getting a little better all the time. It should be fun, stress-free, harmless.

“Awesome. It’s an honor to join the best club in the world. I don’t feel pressure but it’s different playing for Real Madrid than for Stromsgodset.”

Although he is easy going, it is difficult for him to adapt to his time at Real Madrid due to the differences between his previous clubs.

Ultimately he could not sign a contract with Real Madrid, but a move to Arsenal was the best option for him.
