He has already expressed the desire to serve his new masters with one heart;

It feels good to be in a place where they really want one. I want to get up higher and this feels like a club that can do it. Since the year’s meetings in the series, I know that Carlstad United is a really good team that likes to play an offensive football and I want to.
An important part of my way of playing is to stress the slopes, to make sure the opponent’s defense has a hard time every minute.

Players’ agent Jens Leidewall

Many clubs hunted for Bbakka’s signature for the 2019 season in Sweden after his very successful time last season. Bbakka has just turned 23 years and the progress looks very promising with a bright future. Not many players have this unique speed with the working capacity. Both me and him feel that this is just the start of a long and successful career.

Jens Leidewall, players’ agent

I am very satisfied. We were not alone in being interested and have worked hard on this recruitment. He will add a lot to our assault game.
He will help us in the press game, which is important in our way of playing and which we want to become even better at
