,,I never compared myself to the players i played with. Instead i played against imaginaryplayers from all around the world.

To be the best i had to train more and better than others. Not only more.“

„ A lot of people told me that i was not big enough or strong enough.

It only encouraged me more. Where i am today was only a distant dream when i was a teenager. I was never picked for the U17‘s or U19‘s but i was near it. At that time i needed to use my brain a lot to compete against others.

So i emphasized on being technical and quicker in my mind. So i could see what would happen next. Altough you are not the fastest on your feet you can still be step ahead.“

I wish somebody sat down with me when i was thirteen and helped me with goal setting and explained to me how to get them.“
