Of course, the message from Muhamed Besic, BH football player that he sent to Aldin, contributed to all of this.However, that was not it for Aldin, who quickly attracted attention of English media, who followed his unusual little action. After he announced his decision, soon came the offer to turn his interesting story into a movie, which is why Aldin had the opportunity to fulfill his dream and attend the match Everton – Crystal Palace, which was played at the stadium Goodison Park.On that occasion, Aldin said to the media that he is really delighted with the atmosphere in the stadium and fan songs, and he cannot wait for the match to begin.“There is 40,000 people on the stands, and it’s roughly the population of the city where I live.
