Aliou Badji is said to be the solution to the storm problems at SK Rapid. On the last day of the winter transfer window, Senegalese Swedes came from Djurgardens IF.
In a 2-0 victory at home to Red Bull Salzburg on Sunday, Rapid coach Didi Kühbauer made his first Bundesliga lead after being patient for lack of a work permit.
In the "Sky" interview, the 21-year-old tells his first impressions in Vienna and explains what Hütteldorfer fans can expect from him.
Immediately after his replacement, the man of 1.89 meters dribbles against the defense "Bullen" and brings a free kick in the end. A clear signal in the direction of the fans.
"I will play with a lot of passion and give everything to our team," says Badji, who admits he is not yet at the desired level.
It would still lack a few percent, said the 21-year-old, who would like to recommend more in the near future.
It did not work out with a goal in the first game, but there are worse appearances than a win against the series champion. The mood in the stadium shows Badji, who also watched the match in Milan, excited.
"It was a real experience for me, the atmosphere was very good, Rapid fans pushed the team forward and felt that this victory against Salzburg was very important."

Praise to team mates
The acclimatization phase is carried out, according to own data, also good for the Senegalese. On Thursday he will move to his apartment near Allianz Stadium.
He immediately sends a compliment to his new colleagues: "The team and coaches have made it very easy for me to feel good quickly." In training I communicate in English and with Boli there is one who helps me and with I can also speak in French. "
On Saturday, the away game at SKN St. Pölten is scheduled for the "Green-White". In order to qualify for the championship playoff, Rapid should not allow any further gliding.
Anyway, Badji is convinced that things can be even bigger: "Anyway, I think we can still reach the top six and I want to do my part."
Something that Rapid fans will surely hear.
