Astrit Selmani celebrates the debut and the victory – with intervals

Astrit Selmani jumped in late – and was involved in IFK’s crazy turnaround.

But the celebration will be different – one-hour intervals at Kamratgården.

– I want to be fit on Saturday so I have to catch everyone, he says.

Astrit Selmani stepped in for IFK Göteborg against Djurgården, at a 1-0 deficit. When he and the team left the field, they did so with three points in the bag after a late turnaround.

No goal for the former top scorer, but a good effort in the match where attacking colleague Marcus Berg became a big hero.

– I was able to come in and contribute with energy and power. I was involved in the first goal without actually touching the ball. I’m good at that too!

What do you say about the noise level that greeted you at the drop-in?

– I saw that there were many who stood up. You really felt a warm welcome from everyone. I don’t think it will get any less hot after today… It felt really good. The whole stadium closed in around me. I felt free! It is something I will carry with me for a long time.

The odd celebration: “I’m going to train”
However, the former Hammarby and Varberg attacker Astrit Selmani did not celebrate the redemptive victory in a traditional way.

– I’m going to train. I have intervals to run at Kamratgården, one hour, he tells Expressen after the match.

The background is that the striker on loan from Israel has not played a match for quite some time. The last time was the twelfth of March. Then he played around 30 minutes in Midtjylland’s match against Lyngby in the Danish league.

– I want to be fit on Saturday so I have to catch everyone. I’ll run some legs, some upper body and then we’ll have intervals at the end. I’m in quite a hurry so I don’t get too cold.

How good are you at intervals?

– Very much! It might give me extra minutes next game.

Finally, Marcus Berg – about Selmani’s entry:

– He did great when he comes in. Everyone knows his style of play – a troublesome bastard! He dares to hold the ball and go in and meat and cave. He helped us a lot today, that’s positive. Same with Santos, Norlin and Mucolli. They run and fight the whole match, the match. The whole team did great today.
