Right i had very good deals in Germany as well as from Europe. I wanted a new challenge and then came the offer from Laos.
Laoleague.com: How is your first impression about your new club (Nuol FC) after the first game?
It has been really positive. The team, the coaching staff, and the manager welcomed me well. They are very helpful and helped me whenever they can. The first game for me proved to be a good outing with the team and I believe that I can help the team. I am pleased that we have won the game as a team.

Besides football, I love music and dancing, as it allows me to switch off. Music on, world off. Family is everything to me. My family is always behind me and without them I would not be where I am today. My family is always in my heart, wherever I am.
