The 34-year-old is looking forward to his new challenge back home. "I have always been impressed by the audience in Leksand," he explains on the club's website. "It will be fun to experience it for real." Despite his 34 years, he feels ready: "Age is just a number, as I usually say. (...) I still feel young and fresh."
