– AIK may have financial problems now, but they only go up, everything will resolve itself.

You have previously mentioned that Leksand has also shown interest. Just how hungry are you playing there?

– Should I be honest AIK is the only team I care about in Sweden. My cousin (Jean-Luc Grand-Pierre
