What does football mean to you?

Yeah. It’s my passion since I remember myself like five, six years old it was the thing why I would wake up. In the morning, I would wake up and I went to school, but my first meaning was the half-time between lunch and midday to play football with my friends in my free time.

How would you describe yourself as a person?

I have this kind of way to look at life: Always making fun, always positive, always professional but always making jokes.

So in the team we have a fantastic atmosphere also because we have a lot of jokers, a lot of people that create a good atmosphere

Can you describe the feeling of playing for Eintracht Frankfurt at home?

When you come out of the dressing rooms and you see these Eintracht supporters on your front and the ultrasin the full stadium, this is like our vitamin. It’s our 12th player.

That’s fantastic. I think when you are born and you want to play football, you want to play football for these moments, to play in full stadiums and 100% it’s that at Eintracht.
