Let's start with a banal question. Do you like live in Bologna? What do you like most of out city?
«Yes i like it very much, its not to big and not to small, i found it perfect for us! Very good food, resturants, culture... and also much better weather here then we have in Sweden!
I could not imagine living in a better city right now, both me and Mattias can play soccer and still live together».
How do you an Mattina meet? Does you common passion for soccer have anything ti do with It?
«We went to school together when we were kids, around 12 years old. We have always been seeing eachother with common friends and went to eachothers soccer games, and for 3 years ago we started seeing eachother for real as girlfriend and boyfriend.
I dont think that soccer ”brought” us together but of course it has been a big part of our lives,and still are in our realtionship. Its an advantage That we can practice together, watch soccer games, and suport eachother. For now it is very important for both of us».

Is there a footballer you are inspired by or who has passionate you by mailing you chiose to play soccer?
«I have always thought that Marta has been a big insperation, and looked up to her since i was a child. Of course Mattias is a big inspire for me, because i always thought he is so good in playing soccer.
But except for them i dont have an special role model actually.
It think Zlatan is very good and i liked him a lot when i was little, but now i dont follow him that much».

My skills are my sight for the game, my speed, tecnical and likes to play fast and simple».

« I have a lot of knowlege from my years as soccer player, its just a bit hard to explain my thoughts when i dont speak the language very well . Yes, i think i can help the team. To push forward, making good Numbers and to have fun. It would be a bit easier if i could speak italian, but I’m getting there, i have went to italian classes and hope to soon speak good Italian.
