Talangen ger AIK fördel i guldstriden: "Vi är lite fräschare"

© Tillhandahålls av Fotbolldirekt

UPPSALA. Erik Ring, 19, tog chansen när tränaren kallade och låg bakom AIK:s seger borta mot Sirius. 

Nu hoppas han få fler chanser under en höst som han hoppas kan spela “Gnaget” rakt i händerna. 

– Alla vill spela i Europa. Men när vi inte är där så kanske vi har turen att vara lite fräschare i de allsvenska matcherna, säger han. 

Klockan hade tickat upp till matchminut 89 på Studenternas innan AIK gjorde ett förlösande bortamål mot Sirius. 

Inhopparen Erik Ring slog ett perfekt inlägg som Bojan Radulovic skallade i mål bakom David Mitov Nilsson. 

Efter 15 spelade omgångar, det vill säga halva serien, så ligger AIK trea i allsvenskan på samma poäng som Malmö FF och bara tre poäng efter serieledande Djurgården. 

För Ring, som gjorde sin blott tredje insats för AIK den här säsongen, var det en lyckans kväll i Uppsala. 

– Jätteskönt. Jag har väntat ett tag på att få spela och nu när jag gjorde det så var det bara att ta chansen, säger han.

Om målet:

– Vi har pratat om att bara få in bollen på den ytan. Jag försökte göra det och så var Bojan där. Det var tur. 

Har det varit motigt att sitta så mycket på bänken?

– Ja, det är klart att man vill spela. Sedan är det tränarna som bestämmer i slutet av dagen. Man får vara glad när man får spela. 

Ni hänger med Malmö FF och Djurgården. Hur värderar du era chanser i guldstriden?

– Alla har möjligheter att vinna. Sedan är det inget jag försöker tänka så mycket på. Det är så långt framåt och jag fokuserar bara på nästa match. Med det stämmer att vi är med i racet och det är bara att fortsätta gå för segrar.

Är det en fördel att ni slipper Europamatcherna som Malmö och Elfsborg har men inte Djurgården?

– Det är lite tur i oturen. Alla vill spela i Europa. Men när vi inte är där så kanske vi har turen att vara lite fräschare i de allsvenska matcherna. 

Var det sista poängen för säsongen för dig…?

– Det hoppas jag inte, säger han och skrattar. 

AIK möter Häcken på söndag. Innan dess väntar division 3-klubben Rågsved i svenska cupen.
