I liked everything and everyone in my first year in Bergamo: the staff, the company, the people, the fans and then the city, so warm but quiet. I felt at home. Coming to play in Italy was a dream come true, I was happy to come here. And I was happy to have chosen Bergamo, because I felt loved every day. I had worked hard to get here and I want to continue with that. I chose to stay also because I know we had a difficult season, but I’m sure the next one will be good and we’ll do well. Now the dream is to have a good season, to give the team everything I can and get to be among the top teams of the next championship“.
