Simon Skrabb “loves a challenge and can’t wait to get started” with Brescia, as he grew up watching the Rondinelle and Serie A.
The midfielder completed his transfer from IFK Norrkoping on Monday, although it had been delayed by a few days, reportedly due to a dispute over his agent’s commission.
“The days were long when I was waiting for news, but I was always certain that I’d come to Brescia,” said the 25-year-old Finland international in his press conference.
“It’s an honour for me to play for Brescia, as I used to watch Serie A when I was a kid and remember Roberto Baggio and Pep Guardiola playing for this club.
“I see myself more as a midfielder and above all a trequartista. I talked to the coach about my position, then it’s up to him to judge my fitness levels and when I’ll be ready to play.
“It’s true I haven’t played for a while, but I have been training regularly. I love a challenge and can’t wait to get started.”
