What’s your goal behind freestyle football?
My goal in this sport is never to stop doing it and getting better all the time. I think you should always improve yourself as there are no limits to perfection.
What’s the best of being a football freestyler?
First of all, the community is insane. I mean, thanks to freestyle football I have friends all around the world. When we have meetings and different competitions, we always share our culture with each other. It’s a great chance to learn so much about other countries, their religion, and customs. One more super cool thing about this sport is that it’s entertaining and, therefore, everyone likes watching it, haha. Yet it’s difficult, and not everyone can perform it. There are perhaps only 50 people in Sweden who can do it.
How did you choose this activity? What motivated you when you were choosing it?
YouTube. In 2009, I started watching different football freestylers’ YouTube videos and literally couldn’t take my eyes off them. I nailed one trick, then another, and then a lot of them! I met one guy who was also a beginner, now he is my friend, and we started training together till we became as good as those guys in the videos.
