#GAIN THE AIM
Swedish sports entrepreneur, founder and general secretary of the Gothia Cup, the world’s largest international youth football tournament
You know, football is life. To be successful in football you need to do the same things to be successful in life. You need to be focused, to be engaged, to have knowledge of what you’re doing and to practice. I think, one thing that is also important is to learn how to lose, to learn how to make mistakes and to not be afraid to make mistakes. And that is on a football field as well as in life. Make mistakes – that’s the way to succeed.
Motivation? In my job with Gothia Cup the mission that I had to do something, to make a world a bit better, to make an effort. In my case it was to have the world coming together in Gothenburg. And that is still my goal and my spirit. That is what I want to achieve every day.
So, that’s why I came to Uzbekistan, to see the way you are living here and to meet people here. The world is getting more and more global and that is so important that you learn more about modern world. You have to have an open mind and then you will enjoy the life!
