Henok Goitom made his 200th match in the AIK jersey against Falkenberg.
He is thus the 25th player of all time in AIK that reaches the milestone.
- This has a special place in the heart, says Goitom.
AIK won comfortably at home against Falkenberg after two goals by the Norwegian Tarik Elyounoussi, who maintains his strong goal form and tops the Allsvenskan shooting league.
But apart from the victory, it was a special match for AIK's team captain. Henok Goitom did his 200th match for AIK at home against Falkenberg.
That means Goitom is the 25th player of all time in AIK that reaches that milestone. After the match, the team captain tells how proud he is over the company.
- It is now that you realize what 200 matches mean. Before you just played the matches. We play matches week in and week out, so it doesn't feel special there and then, but when you stop, you realize that there are not many players coming up in 200 matches in AIK, Goitom says.
How proud are you?
- It is clear that when you look back at your career, it will be one of several nice things in AIK that I will remember. Previously, I have made a maximum of 30-40 matches for my previous teams, this has a special place in the heart.
