In SVT's new reporting series, we meet some of Allsvenskan's biggest profiles. First out is Astrit Ajdarevic from the reigning champion Djurgården, who will now try to defend the gold.
- It won't be nice, it will be empty without our fans. But it is now that we will show our greatness, he says before the Swedish premiere.
Ajdarevic was not one of the team's most prominent gold heroes and opens here about the special last year off the pitch. In March, just a few weeks before the Swedish start, he and his wife Mimoza became parents for the first time, to two boys. The first half of the year was heavy, since the twins had colic which meant minimal sleep for the parents.
- It was tough in the beginning, they slept and did not eat very well the first six months. It didn't take many hours of sleep. Fortunately, my wife has been strong and we have received help from loved ones.
This was in the middle of the burning season. How did it affect you?
- I don't want to do it as an explanation, I never did. But of course it can have its advantages and disadvantages. It was not easy. I should not say that it was because of what I did not do. It may have been, but I won't say it myself. I'm just glad they are healthy and growing, it still ended well.
