She has been there for a several months now, and says it feels good to be in Paris. There’s a lot to take in for the football player and the French language is something she wants to learn as soon as possible. Though everything is new to her, she feels that the language is the biggest challenge. But when it comes to football, they all understand each other, it’s the same “football language,” says Asllani in her interview with svenskfotboll.se. Though, she is determined to learn French.
Kosovare Asllani has had a great start with PSG, and she claims that it is good for her confidence. She wants to continue at the same level but argues that there is some things that she can improve in the game. Asllani is pleased with her goals so far and says it has to do with the training. She tells svenskfotboll.se that they are really hard at the training and get yelled at if the they miss a goal.
