” I am enjoying my football in Iceland. Although we have only played 5 games or so, the chemistry and cohesion in team and how people treat me in the country is very warm so I am comfortable playing football here.We are at the top of the league and we have a genuine chance for UEFA Champions League football, so I am going to work hard so I can continue make my goals come true.”
