“Everything is going very fast for me. Everything that is happening to me is a dream come true.”
“In all honesty, each and every player made me feel comfortable, no exceptions. I think I am a friendly and open guy and when I have a question, I will ask, no matter if it’s to Toni, Luka or whoever. And certainly, when you reach out to people then they will also come to you more easily later. Having the chance of learning the job alongside these players is just great,”
“The quality everyone has and the training sessions are the two things which surprised me the most so far. When I got here the first day, I was tired after the first training session, but I got used to it. Maybe the language is what’s being tougher for me right now because I like to make jokes and have a laugh with everybody and my Spanish isn’t all that great yet,”
