Mahdollisuus opiskella jalkapallon ohella omalla ajalla auttoi ymmärtämään jalkapalloa bisneksenä. Koulutus innosti valmistelemaan jalkapallouran jälkeisiä vuosia ja mahdollisesti olemaan mukana muuttamassa jopa suomalaisen jalkapallon struktuureja. Opiskeluaika oli antoisaa, koska minulle annettiin vastuu ja vapaus saada opintoja suoritettua. Olen onnellinen ja ylpeä saamastani Bachelor of Sport Management -tutkinnosta ja uskon sen mahdollistavan innostavan työpaikan tulevaisuudessa.
