They’ve supported me in an extraordinary way since my first day with ASSE. I’ve found balance here and I’m very motivated by the idea of signing long-term with the club. Scoring in the Geoffroy-Guichard stadium represents for me a unique feeling that I have to experience time and time again in order to help ASSE to achieve its goals.”
