When I got an offer from Ventspils, I thought it was imperative to take such a great opportunity. This is a great opportunity to take it to a new level and get to know the European competitions, which has always been my goal. I know that FKV is always playing on the international scene, and that leaves a huge impression. Honestly, I was shocked to learn that Ventspils had already played in the Europa League Group Tournament – a very high level! I want to repeat such a club achievement
