Manager Gabriel Markaj had this to say about our new signing:
"Has been a few season that his name came into my attention but I never really perused him to come to the club but then last season when I saw him at training, I really liked the fact that he uses his body very well and he his a clever player, you can see that he has something that can strengthen our team and this year we want to add some extra qualities in his game and if we can do that, I think he will be a massive player for us this season."
