Manager Gabriel Markaj had this to say about our new signing:
"When his name came into my attention, I was a bit sceptical but then after a few phone calls and matches reviews, I started changing my mind and I had to contact him to discuss his interest in joining the club. I like the fact that he has personality on the football pitch; he is someone that likes to take his football serious and that goes a long way on decisions when signing players."
