– It’s always nice to be in Zagreb, I’ve come before, and I’ve been out of town on the hills and mountains because I’m a passionate climber. The city is beautiful, the people are great and I enjoy being here. I am glad that you hosted me at Dinamo and at the Maksimir Stadium. I know a lot about the club, about history and successes, you have a kind of fan in me for years. I also watched two matches between Dinamo and Molde in the Champions League qualifiers. As a Tottenham fan, I also followed Dinamo’s recent great success against the English club. I like the colors of Dinamo – part of what Jo Nesbø said upon arriving at the stadium.
