On what convinced him to join the club, he added : " I played against Stefan Batan in Division 1, he's a really good player. I have also looked at several clips of him.
"When he called me and told me about the club's plans for the season, he convinced me.
"I would rather play higher up but when I heard from Stefan about the club's ambitions, I became convinced to help the club take the step back."
